Very interesting, but I don't feel like they're promoting their product as good as they should. Marketing issues? The Diskeeper site barely gives any info about what is new in the 2008 version.

Kinda annoying I bought Diskeeper 2007 31 days ago... they have a 30 day free upgrade policy.. and after calling them to see if they will still give the update they said no it was over 30 days.... ugh kinda annoying but what ever

One thing that is making me consider upgrading to Diskeeper 08 is its compatibility with the Shadow Copy feature in Vista - currently when the HDD is defragmented, I lose the previous versions of files.

I'll have to try this, because I ditched DiskKeeper for PerfectDisk back in '05.

same,i am really glad dk removed the 20% free space thing that previous versions needed and needs less than pd but the offline defrag has the same as before and it seems to have made an improvement it defrags all my drives for me so i dont have to do manual defrags anymore if i dont want to and contrary to what pd says what they do about dk not defragging when the system waqs busy,i was playing a game and during it i saw no performance drop and it defragged my vm's(they were really fragmented,they always are)and performance is great.

Ideally, you'd run a FS benchmark with either Sandra or HDTach. Then you'd image it and defrag with the first app, and bench it again. Then you'd restore the image, and defrag with the second and bench it again.

I won't be benching anything until I get my new machine though :)

so, does this InvisiTasking actually make a difference or is it all marketing hype

InvisiTasking - I have noticed a performance increase on my heavily used primary HDD. The Frag Shield also helps.

I'm pretty much the same IRL, except I am a bit more open and vocal here. The benefits of anonymity...

It would be interesting to get the hardcore Windows and OS X users in a room and see how the debate would change.

Err ... wrong topic? :laugh:

@ Spyder - Yes, it has activation.

Radish?

Interesting! Thanks for the info. Off to download it now. Invisitasking worked really well in the previous (2007) version, so if they havent changed anything significantly, it still ought to be good. More importantly, if the 1% free space defrag works well, then it's a great improvement over other defraggers. For defraggging large files , you'll still need free disk space around twice the size of the largest fragmented file, I suppose, and not merely x% of free diskspace. Can anyone clarify this?

sounds good, but then again sounds like bloatware to me, recently got UltimateDefrag 1.69, which i have to say is lean and really good :)
