Raxco Software's PerfectDisk® Live Subscription Software Utility Gains Legions of New Users in First Month

Consumers Embrace World's First Subscription Service Defragmenter

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 23, 2005 -- Raxco Software, the leader in defragmentation software, today announced the growing success of its PerfectDisk® Live subscription based defragmenter service, the latest member of its award-winning PerfectDisk family. Since its July launch, PerfectDisk Live has been adopted by thousands of home- and office-based consumers and small businesses who are finding that the Internet-based service provides identical features as installed software, without additional maintenance fees or the need to search out and manually update the utility.

Utilizing the same award-winning platform as Raxco's flagship PerfectDisk Version 7.0, PerfectDisk Live gives users an easy, inexpensive option to take advantage of the PerfectDisk technology without owning any software. There are no maintenance or software assurance fees, and users are assured of always having the most up-to-date version of PerfectDisk Live running, without installing, maintaining, and or updating any software. PerfectDisk Live is accessed through users' Web browsers, making it a simple tool to navigate and control.

"As a former user of the installed Windows defragmenter, I saw an immediate and significant improvement in my PC's performance after switching to PerfectDisk Live," said subscriber Ted Tweet. "In addition, the automated scheduling and automatic updates make defragging my PC less cumbersome than other third party utilities. With PerfectDisk Live, my PC's files and free disk space are thoroughly defragged, meaning far less file fragmentation in the future. However, the best benefit of PerfectDisk Live is that I can spend more time using my PC for investment analysis and less time physically maintaining my PCs performance," Tweet added.

"In addition to being the most complete defragmenter on the market, PerfectDisk Live streamlines the defragmentation process to make it very affordable and worry-free," said Robert Nolan, president and CEO of Raxco Software. "We are always breaking new ground, and with PerfectDisk Live we have broadened the horizon for PC users everywhere."
