Think of your computer's hard drive as the soup aisle in your local supermarket. Every file that you have takes up a certain number of cans of soup, so your little printer driver is, say, one can of chicken noodle, but your gigantic graphics suite is 150 cans of tomato.
As your computer reads and writes data, it's constantly taking cans of soup off the shelf and putting other cans back on, and eventually, while all of your soup is still there, it's not all sequentially organized anymore. So you've got chicken-tomato-chicken-tomato-chicken, and when it's time to read that tomato soup file, your computer has to work harder to find all of the tomato soup cans to read the entire data file. This, in not so elegant terms, is what happens when your hard disk becomes fragmented.
You can probably guess what defragging your hard drive means -- taking all of those pieces of data and arranging them back into sequential order on your hard drive, so it's easier and faster to read files. The impact on your application performance is tremendous. Defragging puts all of the tomato soup cans back together in the same spot on the shelf.
DiskMagik is a utility that's intelligently designed to defragment your hard drive. More flexible than the basic disk defrag utility that ships with Windows XP, and easier to use than the one that comes with Vista, DiskMagik delivers better and more powerful features. With DiskMagik, you can choose to run a full defrag, or you can elect to defrag certain key Windows files before Windows boots up. You can even use DiskMagik to run a Proactive Defrag, which runs silently in the background, defragging files in realtime as they become fragmented!
What do you get by using DiskMagik to defrag your internal, external, and USB hard drives? How about faster startup and shutdown times, faster application performance, and fewer system crashes? Worth playing for? Get DiskMagik today!
