Installing PD12 was very quick and simple. I loved that I really didn’t need to do any configuring of my server at all once it was installed. I just started a defrag, sat back, and let it get on with it.
There are plenty of options you can change and set if you wish, but I didn’t feel the need to.
Performing a scan was very quick, and performing my initial defrag was relatively quick, although I had quite a few files needing sorting!
The other point worth noting is that PerfectDisk 12 Home Server edition is the only disk defragmentation software available for Windows Home Server 2011 at this time.
Price wise, it will depend on what you buy, For example if you just want the Home Server edition, its $39.99, or $19.99 if you have a previous version. Or for $69.99 you can get the Home Server edition and 3 licences of Professional for your home PCs. So it is a very competitive product.
Overall we gave it a 4/5 and a Recommended result. What could it have done to get 5/5 and Highly Recommended? Well, personally I think if it had been integrated into the Dashboard that would have been enough to tip it into the 5’s. Maybe in a future update this will happen, but it is not there today.
