One of the challenges we face with PerfectDisk is maintaining and improving speed as files and drives get bigger, while also continuing to provide smarter defrag methods, such as SMARTPlacementoptimization. Besides enhancing the product set with new features and capabilities, our development team is always looking at ways to improve the underlying engine's speed and performance. This has gone on for years, including several years ago when we pioneered the support for the very large drives that are now much more common. Many of our users have drives of several terabytes, with files of several hundred gigabytes.
And PerfectDisk does do more "work," because it is not merely defragmenting files and moving them around haphazardly like rearranging chairs on the Titanic.
SMARTPlacement is smarter, an optimization strategy that ultimately reduces overhead and resource consumption, and results in a slower rate of refragmentation.
So we have significantly improved the analyze phase of the disk drive that PerfectDisk performs - up to 30% faster, depending on the size of the drive's files and the number of files.
A faster analyze en route to a smarter defrag.
It's a Perfect 10. Coming soon.
