    I was considering buying Diskeeper Professional Premier but would like to get some opinions if I could on it. I am interested in the feature "I-FAAST".

    More Info: http://www.diskeeper.com/diskeeper/home/premier.asp?pe=7

    Could anyone tell me if this sounds like it would be good, the "I-FAAST" technology?

    Thanks,

    Gracie

    from teh brief description it does sound like a good idea. by organizing your most frequently accessed files, those files will run faster.

    of course, it would be interesting to see if it really affects real world usage.

    Perfect Disk has organized files by frequency of use for many years.

    How does diskkeeper differ in this area.

    doesnt PrefectDisk (smart placement) go by modification date, whereas Diskeeper's ifaast would go by access date?

    i may be wrong but access and modification dates are independent of each other.

    Didn't even know I could, but knowing that I can... I will :). It would make more sense I think.

    Thanks! :D

    Hi,folks: I have it on one of my PCs. It works great and I like it. If you are allowed to have only one disk defrag, I would recommend you to look at Perfect Disk. Both are excellent apps, doing great jobs. Their theory are master pieces, no doubt. However I do find one major difference between them; I do much less defrag w/ perfect disk. Do not ask me why, this is just the FACT. Something for you to entertaining.:-*

    That.s because PD has a superior algorithm.

    Modification Time is a better criteria than Access Time.

    I have Diskeeper Professional Premier 10 and was wondering is their a way to set Diskeeper to defrag just once a week every week on a certain day and time? I'm sure there is but i guess i'm a bit slow. :doubt:
