Diskeeper Pro question

  1. Hey, I just have a quick question about Diskeeper Pro. I've been using it now for a little over a year, and just started noticed a lot of the pink (low performing system files) showing up. I used to be able to get rid of this by running a boot-time defrag, but this is no longer fixing the problem. Is this something I should worry about? and if so, what can I do to fix the problem?

    Thanks!

    Reducing your fragmentation by a couple of percent yeilds pretty negligable performance gains. In my opinion, I wouldn't sweat it too much...

    However, I'd be interested in knowing why this is happening to you as well. 'Boot-time' defragging should be able to get most - if not all - of your files nice and organized.

    use Windows defrag

    Just a suggestion that should be pain-free...

    1. Backup
    2. uninstall diskeeper
    3. defrag using Windows built-in
    4. re-install diskeeper and see if anything looks better/worse
