Diskeeper Lite.

Have downloaded this which I understand will run on Vista. However it will not load [installed ok I think]. I keep getting a message "Diskeeper lite does not allow access to terminal services. Purchase the full version etc etc". Any observations please why this is so?

don't know but auslogics disk defrag is good as well & free.

Yes just downloaded and installed. Will dispose of diskeeper, thanks

Diskeeper Lite is not certified for Vista that's why it does not work. In fact, if I am not wrong, DK Lite is about 7 years old!! I suggest you don't try it with Vista.

Diskeeper 2008 on the other hand is excellent for vista with even some Vista-specific defrag modes. Although it's not free, it's far better than the Auslogics one; well worth the money.

Diskkeeper Lite, IIRC, was the basis for the original Windows Defrag utility.

I also use the free Auslogics defragger - works fine for me and certainly much better, I've found, than IOBit.

tried lots of defrags[not dk2008] so far jk defrag [free]recommended by cocteau is the most impressive better than iobit,auslogics,dk2007,norton defrag.

Thanks all for the input. Have just downloaded JK defragger to have a look. Didn't install screensaver. Although the defragger seem to be working ok the display is horrible, not what I am used to. Looks corrupted somehow. any views on that. AB 68

That's sort of the point - the display is showing the distribution of data across the disk. When it's continous from start to finish, your files are defragged and contiguous.

read the web page re jk defrag click here

the display is in pixels instead of blocks. I ran the defrag then set up a schedule cmd.exe as explained and no longer worry about defrag. [I set mine to run each time the pc boots up so it defrags before other stuff runs, if i want to access the pc quickly i just close the cmd screen it closes ok as described on the web page]
