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.

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 :)
