Diskeeper Lite is a useful hard disk drive tools set for "keeping" the drives clean, fast and operating its best performance, by defraging the drives and consolidating the disk free space.

The application defrags the units in different ways:

Automatically.- it works in the background, not interfering with nor lowering at all the applications runing, enhancing the drives performing to their best. By default, this is the recommended operation that starts up whenever the application is launched (unless the user decides not to let Diskeeper run in this mode). In addition, the user can set a Timeline to specify exclusion periods and the Automatic Defragmentation will be disable for those periods (hours, days, weeks, etc.). The user can manually turn on/off this function anytime.
If the application is turned off during a defragmentation task, it will keep on working until it's completely finished.

Manually.- the user starts the defragmentation duty, selecting the drive to be cleaned. Then the defragmentation method is selected: Quick or Recommended (that is the default mode). First one will defragment only fragmented files, not payng any attention to the free disk space. The Recommended method will take care of the fragmented files and will consolidate the free disk space for best performance. Both manual methods will not use excessive system resources.
Again, if the user leaves the application during a defragmentation task, it will continue on working until it's complete.

The application Configuration allows the user to set the file and folders exclusions -not to be defragmented-, specify how the program has to act in low battery conditions, users permissions, automatic updates, etc.
