Every system, every network, every company suffers from the effects of fragmentation. Eliminating fragmentation is vital to maximize system performance and reliability. Fragmentation has historically been addressed after it has already occurred (defragmentation). The more automated, immediate and invisible that defragmentation process, the better.
However, when fragmentation occurs, the system is wasting precious I/O resources by writing non-contiguous files to scattered free spaces across the disk. The best strategy is to prevent the problem from ever happening in the first place and always work with a clean, fast disk.
Just like an up-to-date anti-virus product prevents a virus from affecting the system, Diskeeper 2010® performance technology includes exclusive IntelliWrite™ technology which prevents fragmentation (up to 85% of it) from being written to the hard drive and impeding your system's performance.
