    A lot of Windows users these days have a lot of processes running in the background. This can be good or bad, but it definitely does not help a disk defragmenter do it's job. And so, the makers of Diskeeper 2007 made sure that users would not have to worry about how their various processes affected the performance of their degragmenter. Their "InvisiTasking" software runs in the background, automatically prioritizing itself as activity increases and decreases. This effectively makes Diskeeper 2007 run as if it's not there, and defragments as fragmentation appears, instead of at regular scheduled intervals. Diskeeper 2007 costs £23 for a home PC and from £285 for a Windows server.

    This will be a problem for those that play online games like BF2, etc.

    Oh hell yeah, I definitely have to get this version. I use one older version (like last years) and that rocks~!

    I've learned that if it ain't broke don't fix it. If it rocks keep what you have because it won't get better then that.

    In 1968, my fathers ESS HEIL Air Motion Transformer speakers were top of the line, and sounded amazing - paper cones and all. While they still sound very good, my Totem Forests blow them out of the water - with a driver half the size.

    That's false on several factors:
    -30+ technology gap which is not relevant to this thread. (2006 vs 2007 is the issue here)
    -you are trying to compare technology from 1968 which is more then arrogant on your part (again we are talking recent tech)
    -and it barely beats it compared to todays standard
    -there are people still satisfied by ESS HEIL
    Therefore, your example is false by every stretch of the term used.

    This is EXACTLY what you said above
    I just showed you how a technology can get better, you said it won't get any better. How is that false?


    Recent tech - how about the explosion of the Core2Duo - as compared to the 939. Both are recent techs, everyone said AMD was the best. Now it's intel.

    I much prefer O&O's method of defragmenting any time the screen saver comes on. Though I find that hard drives don't get fragmented enough to really even use that feature. A weekly defrag is really all that is necessary, and even then I only defrag the volumes that are 4% fragmented or more.
