Diskeeper working on tool to prevent disk fragmentation

Posted on Monday, August 17 2009 @ 07:22:29 CEST by

Diskeeper announced it's working on a file system filter driver that should prevent about 75 percent of file fragmentation before it ever occurs, by organizing data properly before it is written to the file system. More info at PC World.
"It will be a green technology, in the sense that it will minimize the amount of [disk] activity in terms of defrag operations... including use of the drive, power, and wear and tear," Materie said.

Diskeeper is one of a few companies which have devoted themselves to defragmentation, or the elimination of blocks of file data spread out over the logical system of a computer's hard disk. Searching for and combininng these fragments is a time-consuming process, and a heavily fragmented disk can bring a PC to a crawl. Diskeeper has worked on defrag utilities for over 20 years, and its products have won PCMag.com Editors' Choice awards.
