How can I get my PCs and laptops back to peak performance?
The primary reason a disk slows down is fragmentation. Fragmentation is essentially little bits of data or information that are spread over a large disk area causing the hard drive to work harder and slower than it has to just to read a single file.
Disk fragmentation is a natural occurrence and is constantly accumulating each and every time a computer is used. When files are saved in small pieces scattered across the hard drive, the system must work harder to locate the exact data and put it back together. No wonder Windows systems slow down over time!

A single fragment requires one-hundredth of a second to retrieve, so two fragments take two-hundredths of a second, a hundred fragments take a whole second, a thousand fragments take ten seconds—the math is daunting.
Diskeeper® finds all the pieces of a file and puts them all back together in one place—creating contiguous files.
