Speed Disk = Voodoo?!!

By KahunaNui ·
OK, Seems that not even Symnatec can give us straight info on this product... After finally finding out what we need to be compliant in our LAN, we are now wondering if anyone has extensive knowledge of running this with NSC (Norton system Center). Seems if you want to get a visual of your actual defrag process or be able to analyze a drive you need to install it directly on the local machine. We ran jobs from NSC but we can't figure a way to actually check progress. How do we know this drive is really defragging (other than the drive LED activity)? As with most other Symantec products (their own tech people even admit this) their manual for this product (ver.5.1) is lousy. We like to be able to run the defrag jobs from an administration machine and not directly on the servers but we would also like to have that visual the way that Diskeeper does. Any suggestions? Is there anywhere we can go to get some guidelines and/or implementation info written in English?!!

Thank you very much!

It may be possible that what you are wanting SpeedDisk can't provide - especially if their tech support is of no assistance.

From your question, it appears that you are familiar with Diskeeper and how Diskeeper does things. Any particular reasonthat you decided to implement SpeedDisk then?

Well, I have been researching this and now testing. Perhaps you are correct. Dealing with Symantec and many other large software companies is a real study in frustration! And yes, we have looked at PerfectDisk and will again...in fact, that was our second choice.

There are things we didn't like about the Diskeeper product.

Thank you for your response!
