    We'll put the question in software and services since it isn't a poll. :)

    i switched to perfectdisk simply caused diskeeper hanged on extremely large files and it doesnt replace the windows defragger. Sometimes i just want to defrag in safe mode and only the windows defragger can do that.

    I also switched to Perfect Disk. I switched because I read alot of good things about it. It might be slow at scanning (sometimes) but it does what it says to do. But in my opinion, you can go wrong with either.

    Diskeeper - cost. 5 PC's, 4 copies of DK Home ($15/PC)and one copy of DK Pro ($41/PC) at Provantage. Tested both. Once setup, ease of use was similar. Not quite the power with the DK Home version, but more than enough for me. It was one of those "most of the functionality" for 1/3 of the cost things.
