Raxco Software's PerfectDisk® Scores a Perfect Five Stars in Softpedia.com Review

Latest Award Win Highlights PerfectDisk® Speed, Thoroughness and Ease-of-Use for the Home and Enterprise

GAITHERSBURG, MD -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 2, 2006 -- Raxco Software, the worldwide leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that Softpedia.com awarded its PerfectDisk® 7.0 defragmentation utility five stars, the site's highest rating, and highlighted the software's single-pass capabilities, ease-of-use interface and reporting, and its effectiveness for both home and networked enterprise PCs. The site also awarded PerfectDisk an Editor's Review rating of excellent and named the software a "Softpedia Pick" with a score of five out of five.

"PerfectDisk is truly the 'perfect' software if you're looking for a clean, intuitive and highly efficient defragmentation software product," wrote Stefan Fintea, Softpedia's software news editor. "The program provides advanced features in a simple and comprehensible interface which makes PerfectDisk very recommendable, for both novices and experienced users alike. PerfectDisk's easy-to-use interface and powerful defrag engine were designed for users who also require the capabilities of network defragmentation and advanced features for the enterprise. If you want to optimize your computer to run faster and perform better so you can do more -- whether work or surfing the Web -- and run in a networked environment, then PerfectDisk is for you," Fintea added in the review that can be accessed at: http://www.softpedia.com/reviews/windows/PerfectDisk-Review-18844.shtml

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 also defragments more files, including all metadata files, than any other defragmenter, and consolidates free space in a single pass.

"PerfectDisk is not solely a defragmentation program; it can do a single pass consolidation of free space which ensures that new files will be created quickly and contiguously," Fintea continued. "So, while the competition may require a few runs to ensure maximum efficiency, PerfectDisk, on the other hand, will defrag your partitions at high-quality standards in a single pass."

"Softpedia is known for its stringent testing processes and highly regarded reviews," said Joe Abusamra, vice president of operations at Raxco. "It is evidence of our developers' ongoing commitment to creating a great product that Softpedia not only recommends PerfectDisk 7.0, but also has awarded our software its highest rating."

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.
