Disktrix has released version 4 of their unique defragmentation software UltimateDefrag.
Created for all versions of the Windows operating system, UltimateDefrag takes a unique and highly effective approach to defragmentation and hard drive optimization by applying Pareto’s Law of 80/20 to file use while simultaneously considering the variation of file access and data transfer performance depending upon the physical location of data on a mechanical hard drive.
While there are dozens of hard drive defragmentation products on the market, none of these defragmentation products address the true reasons for reduced hard drive performance and most merely defragment fragmented files.
According to DiskTrix programmers, there are 3 factors that reduce hard drive performance, of which file fragmentation, incidentally is the least significant. The other two, and primary, reasons for reduced hard drive performance which contribute around 90% to reduction in performance, and can be countered in order to optimize performance, are 1. Data Transfer Rates and 2. Seek Times.
The rate limiting factor to the performance of PCs and servers is the hard drive. By optimizing hard drive Data Transfer Rates to 150% of factory averages and Seek Times by up to 500%, raw hard drive performance can be improved by up to a factor of 4, compared with average quoted performance from the factory and up to 6 times for hard drives that are getting full.
By optimizing and reorganizing files on the hard drive to maximize data transfer rates, minimize seek times and defragment files, UltimateDefrag vastly reduces this rate limiting bottleneck which results in much faster file access which the user experiences as a faster Windows PC.
UltimateDefrag intelligently tracks user file usage patterns. It allows the user to operate in 2 modes. Power Users get to enjoy Expert Mode where they can manually configure numerous options to manually choose which programs, files and folders they want maximum performance from. PC users who just want a fast PC without having to drill down into the programs advanced features can select Simple Mode for an automatically and intelligently optimized hard drive that will give the user maximum file access performance.
And in another first for any defragmentation product, users now enjoy the ability to choose any programs the wish to achieve maximum performance from by simply selecting the program of a list of installed applications. UltimateDefrag will optimally place all files for that application to the fastest performing areas of the user’s hard drive.
Originally released in 2006, UltimateDefrag has always been the only defragmentation that offers its own unique approach to defragmentation and hard drive optimization and with version 4, users now have more power and flexibility than ever before.
UltimateDefrag4 is priced at $29.95, with discounts for multiple license purchases. It is compatible with all versions of Windows including Windows 7, Vista, XP and Windows Servers.
