From ExtremeTech:

Diskeeper plans to introduce a file system filter driver later this year that will eliminate most file fragmentation before it actually occurs, company executives said Friday.

But the filter driver is designed to weed out about 75 percent of fragmentation before it ever occurs, by intercepting the data before it is written to the file system, and organizing it appropriately.

I wonder if they’ll be supporting WHS out of the box with this.

# re: Shiny new defrag technology from Diskeeper (Andreas M. @ 8/21/2009 5:20 AM)

Back when NTFS was new Microsoft stated that it was hardly prone to fragmentation. With Windows Vista they introduced scheduled defragmentation. If Diskkeeper can avoid fragmentation, why can't Microsoft?
