I recently downloaded and installed Diskeeper Lite, and found that it is excellent. It only takes a few minutes to defrag a drive. HOWEVER, unfortunately it WILL NOT run in the background. To get this facility you have to install the paid for program, having uninstalled the Lite program first.
I am now running Disk-keepter Lite in the background. Unlike the Windows defragmenter, it does not keep restarting if you make any changes to he disk. It just keeps chugging along while you are working. The only problem I noticed was with trying to run Disk-keeper together with AVG virus scanner, which is hardly surprising considering the amount of disk activity with a virus scan.
I started it at 10:16:30 and will post this message when it is finished.
Am I missing something? I have tried various sttings, but keep getting a message that 'this option is only available on the full version'. The program is excellent, but I honestly cannot see how to set it to run continuously in the background. I have been think about buying the full version. Any advice would be welcome
I think that I have suddenly cottoned on. Do you mean that you set it to run, and then carry on doing other things on the computer??? If so I already do this even with Norton System Works and Norton Firewall running. What I was refering to was to be able to set it to constantly keep the disc defragged, I think that this is possible in the bought version.
