Raxco Software, the leader in disk defragmentation and optimization software, announced today that is has been awarded a patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for new file query technology that improves the speed of the disk defragmentation process on Microsoft® Windows® platforms. Raxco has incorporated the new file query technology into its PerfectDisk® disk defragmentation solution.

In order to defragment a file, it needs to be opened to determine where all of its pieces are located. This process consumes time and resources in terms of disk IO, CPU and memory. The new Raxco file query technology allows PerfectDisk to bypass the step of opening each individual file, thereby saving the time and the resource penalties this activity incurs. “With the prevalence of multi-terabyte disks in the market, it is essential that we constantly strive to improve defragmentation performance” said Joe Abusamra, Raxco’s Vice President for Operations. “Larger disks typically mean more files and more fragmentation, so it is important to be able to handle these conditions efficiently, and that’s what our new file query technology does.”

The new patent is Raxco’s third disk defragmentation-related patent for Windows. The company is proud of its leadership and innovation in this area and continues to develop techniques for improving Windows performance and the end user experience.
