    Update ► PerfectDisk 2008 SP-1 Build 44

    Raxco has re-relased SP-1. The original release, build 43, was pulled. Don't know why. Use the integrated updater to install SP-1.

    NOTE: You'll probably have to re-boot after the install.


    What's new in PerfectDisk 2008 Build 44
    New Features
    Improved defragmentation speed.
    Added ability to work in lower screen resolutions, such as 800x600 or 1024x768.
    Added print statistics functionality.
    Updated help files.
    Added ability to set license key via Active Directory Group Policy.
    Added the logging of a reason why the StealthPatrol schedule was suspended.
    Added "Every X weeks" field to the Exchange weekly schedule.
    Added Help Button in PerfectDisk Settings window.
    F1 opens Help.
    Added a warning when manually starting Exchange Defragmentation that this will dismount the datastore/stop the services.
    Added data validation check on Exchange schedule wizard.


    Bug Fixes
    Fixed boot time defragmentation "Insufficient Space" error on Vista.
    Fixed installation on a remote computer problem.
    Fixed setting of the Exchange server name to allow the usage of PerfectDisk 2008 for Exchange on cluster servers.
    Fixed the problem of initiation of boot time defrag on a remote computer that would lead to reboot of the local computer.
    Fixed persistence of boot time defrag settings for FAT16 drives.
    Fixed problem when system tray icon shows idle state even though PD is currently defragmenting a drive.

    Fixed setting of "Stop if any shadow copies exist" option.
    Fixed value of settings for "Every X Days" field when Daily schedules field edited.
    Fixed settings of "Defragment the selected system files on EVERY reboot"; made the behavior consistent with PerfectDisk v8.
    Fixed problem when some file extensions could not be added to the extension list on Free Space tab.
    Made default extension lists consistent on Free Space tab.
    Fixed the problem of the system tray icon not updated after a USB drive was removed.
    Made extension list fields read-only on Free Space tab.

    Re: Update ► PerfectDisk 2008 SP-1 Build 44

    Thanks for the heads up, Joe. I did use the update checker INSIDE the program to get Build 44 and it didn't require a boot after. However, I have a followup question. Do you have a link on the Raxco site where one is supposed to go to download updates to the program? The reason I ask is that, just in case I were ever in need of re-installing, these internal updaters don't leave me with a file I can find and store away for possible future use. So, here I am with the latest build installed and no idea where the <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> it came from. There ought to be a support link somewhere on their site for such stuff and I know I just haven't found the right place to find it. I did go to the "re-download" link but that just gives me the original 2008 version I bought in the first place.

    Never mind, Joe. Call off the dogs, I think I found it. This seems to be the link: Defragmentation Software | Raxco.com
