  • Release of PerfectDisk Virtual editions.
  • Changed the behavior of how solid state drives are defragmented.
  • Usability enhancements added.
  • Built in defrag schedule has been disabled to prevent thrashing the drive with two different defrag programs running at once.
  • Fixed a bug which blocked boot-time logging on 64 bit Windows.
  • Added ability to enter Proxy information when using AutoUpdate feature.
  • Fixed some column sizing issues and typos.
  • Added a feature to allow shutting down after a manually initiated defragmentation pass. Previously this feature existed for schedules only.
  • Progress removed from the tray icon as the percent complete was wildly inaccurate.
  • Fixed display issues where San Serif font was specifically called for. It the computer did not have this font PerfectDisk could display schedule information.
  • Corrected some refresh issues in the user interface where settings were being changed but the display was not updated until the user interface was closed and reopened.
  • Fixed an issue where the duplicate file finder could delete files from the Programs File folder on 64 bit computers. By default this directory should have been excluded.
