Diskeeper Vs Defrag: Is Diskeeper worth it?
Hey guys, was hoping you could help me with a dilemma here.
I've used the trial version of Diskeeper on my XP computer many years ago, and I felt that it did help to speed up access times (although I'm not sure if it actually did help, or if it was the placebo effect). Anyways, now I have a 4 year old Win7 32-bit PC and it's quite slow, even though 60% of the HD is empty. There is absolutely no malware on my PC either and it does have sufficient RAM (3.5 gigs to be precise). Reformatting helps, but the PC always become slow over time. I've heard that fragmentation can slow down your PC, and I really want to know if an investment in Diskeeper Pro is worth it. Or is the Windows Defrag utility up to snuff? Diskeeper has garnered good reviews, but I really want the opinions of people who have used it (and no, as much as I'd love to, I can't afford an SSD just yet).
So, is an investment in Diskeeper justified?
