Diskeeper 9 opinions needed (for testing)

I have to write a review on Diskeeper 9 from Executive Software, and I'd like some input on what kinds of test I should run, or any other proceedures or observations, to compare it with XP's built in defragmenter.

  1. Not much into this but there are one or two freeware tools that might be of help:

    I like the graph on HDTune. There are also some others that I haven't tried that might interest you like: "Disk Bench", "Roadkills Disk Speed", "Disk TT", and "HD Speed".

    Hope this is of some help.

    The loving are the daring!
  2. I have learned to avoid HT Tach for such things, it reads from the drive at a low level bypassing the file system.

    So I just used SiSoft's Sanrda 2005 file system benchmark, though I am not sure I would recommend it.

    I have had problems where windows XP defragmenter would crash windows almost every time if I tried to defrag a drive with enough free space but several 6-8 GB files!

    Might just be my system and it was under SP1a but if it is repeatable then it would make an interesting test.
  3. Get it before it disappears! Yes, all the 512k P4's with 800 bus are Northwoods.
