That may well be the case. But I can't allow Diskkeeper Lite to remain on my PC when I get warning popups every few seconds (even when DKL is not being 'used').
To reiterate...I do not need to, nor do I want to defrag an Acronis Image file. DKL runs in the background to assess whether a defrag is due and during it's ongoing analysis of my ext HDD, tells me that there is a problem with an image file.
I am looking for an alternative defragger to service my C:\ drive. Preferably one which utilises an efficient algorithm to enable a quick and effective defrag.
It doesn't need to be a free app, just good at what it's supposed to do...in fact the nags associated with DKL are enough in themselves to encourage me to part with my hard earned, let alone the 'error' popups!
PerfectDisk works for me, never had any probs defragging C, D and ext usb drives. It will either defrag or do what they call 'smart placement' Smart Placement organizes files based on their age. Older file are grouped together since they are less likely to change or be deleted. This is turn minimizes refragmentation and maximizes the speed of subsequent defragmentation passes.
I seem to recall that DKL was only set to defrag C: However, it seems to analyse all drives on an ongoing basis, flagging up a drive which it considers due for attention. It was during this monitoring process (namely continualy) that the error flag would pop up.
