Raxco Software, the worldwide leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that its award-winning PerfectDisk® has been chosen by WindRider Technologies to replace Diskeeper® on all computers WindRider manufactures. WindRider is a Microsoft® Partner and Intel Dealer specializing in computer systems for people who need powerful computing solutions that fit their unique needs.
With the latest release of Diskeeper, WindRider found that it lacked a solution that provides its users with control over their defragmentation needs. In particular, Diskeeper's inability to allow users to schedule when to defragment their drives, its multi-pass strategy that does not consolidate free space well, and its requirement for large amounts of free space to work were driving factors in WindRider's decision. WindRider maintains a large, high-profile client list, including Cisco Systems, Deutsche Bank, Oppenheimer & Co., Northrop Grumman, the U.S. Air Force, and many more.
"PerfectDisk combines a high-quality defrag solution combined with the necessary control that our users demand," said L. Scott Tafel, founder of WindRider. "PerfectDisk's single-pass strategy ensures efficient and thorough defrag results, and its ability to schedule defrag runs, even through a Screensaver mode, are features that our users can't be without. As a Microsoft Partner with a close relationship with Intel, we need to deliver systems with best-of-breed products."
"Raxco has a history of partnering with computer manufacturers that require the unique defragging capabilities that PerfectDisk provides," said Joe Abusamra, vice president of operations at Raxco. "We are pleased to have WindRider join the growing list of OEMs that realize only PerfectDisk can provide single-pass defragmentation and free space consolidation with minimal resource utilization, along with the necessary control that users expect."
