The Dow may hit 10,000 again someday and World of Warcraft (WoW) interest may wane someday, but for now, both seem a long way off. Blizzard Entertainment's wildly popular massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) now boasts over 11.5 million monthly subscribers. And many of these subscribers are PerfectDIsk users, who we hear from all the time.
Gamers such as WoW players are always looking for ways to boost their system's performance and do whatever tweaking they can to get an advantage. So naturally, defragmenting files is an aspect of that, along with total free space consolidation.
But time after time, day after day, two things in particular for WoW players stand out with PerfectDisk -- AutoPilot Scheduling and Selected Files defrag. A nasty problem for WoW players is WoW's MPQ files, which include data, graphics, sound and more. MPQs can get large and they can get badly fragmented. And the result is lost performance.
So lots of WoW users use PerfectDisk to completely defragment their drives, including the MPQ files, to boost their performance. Because of PerfectDisk's free space consolidation, they will fragment more slowly anyway. Many users will use Selected Files Defrag to clean up the MPQ files. And WoW players also will use AutoPilot Scheduling to ensure a complete defrag after receiving a WoW patch from Blizzard.
Winning the WoW fragmentation war one drive -- or one file -- at a time. Automatically.
