[access-uk] Re: computer housekeeping

So is anyone using the latest pro version with JAWS and does it work OK? Why the PRO version? What's the difference? Where do I find it, please?

Hi folks,

Why not just buy Diskeeper, http://www.diskeeper.com.  Then you can forget
about defragging altogether and let Diskeeper do it for you.  I can't
recommend it highly enough.  It defrags in the background while you are
working, and I can honestly say I see no degradation in performance when it
is defragging.  In fact, the opposite.  I find my machine is snappy all of
the time now.

Incidentally, it is also completely screen reader friendly, with JAWS,
Window-Eyes, and System Access, the three I have tried it with.

All the best

Steve

It's scan disk first, and it really does make a difference after it's done. I once remember that, when JAWS used the authorisation disk, I defragmented
the harddrive and lost the key, it went back into demo! Thank goodness we
don't use that stupid disk way anymore, remember how you had to backup the
keys and all that!

Damon, I think to get a hastle free defrag you should try and have as few
programs running as possible.

Can you disconnect from the net? If so you can safely turn off any
firewall and anti-virus software. I personally haven't had to turn off the

screenreader, and of course if you do unless youve got some useful vision
you won't know whats going on.

Have you done a scan disk first? I can never remember which order those 2
things are supposed to be done but perhaps if you try that first it may
help fix whatever is causing your defrag problems.

HI all.

For some reason I can't complete a full defrag. It's a little confusing.
It gets to around 10% and stops.

Is there any reason why the existence of jaws, for instance, might cause
this problem? I think it's a long running problem for me.

My screensaver isn't on. But my Virus checker, Mcafee, is still on. Might
this be the issue?

Any system cleaning or tidying tips most appreciated.

Thanks.
