Raxco Software's PerfectDisk Makes Drives Healthier Faster Says Government Computer News Review

PerfectDisk 7.0 Noted for Ability to Keep Drives Healthy for Longer Periods

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 6, 2005 -- Raxco Software, the worldwide leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that Government Computer News (GCN) has noted that PerfectDisk® 7.0 plays an important role in making large drives and stand alone PCs run healthier and faster.

"PerfectDisk also helps fortify drives against future fragmentation. It does this by identifying and grouping together frequently modified files and also those rarely used. This, combined with consolidating free space, helps drives stay defragmented longer. And it speeds the defrag process even more when you do have to use PerfectDisk again. What's more, PerfectDisk can run on a drive with very little free space. We tested this feature on an archive machine: With just five percent free disk space, you can still run PerfectDisk," states the GCN article that can be accessed at:

Already the fastest and most complete defragmentation tool available, PerfectDisk 7.0 utilizes a unique peer-to-peer architecture to allow enterprise management, including deployment, scheduling, and reporting, from any system. PerfectDisk continues to defragment more files, including all metadata files, and consolidate free space in a single pass.

"Obviously, we believe we have a great solution that we have been delivering to the market the world over, but it is really gratifying to have a very credible third-party viewpoint see that PerfectDisk delivers on what we promise," said Robert Nolan, president and CEO of Raxco.

PerfectDisk has long been the defragmenter with more Microsoft® certifications than any other defragmenter on the market and has achieved the highest standards in excellence. PerfectDisk 7.0 was the first defragmenter certified by Microsoft, with independent testing from VeriTest, the testing division of Lionbridge, for Windows Server™ 2003 and Windows Server.
