Diskeeper Pro is by far the best defrag software i have found.

Original File Size = 22MB > Reduced Filesize 13MB
Method Used: 7zip with Source Stripping.
Time: 5 mins

Download Diskeeper Pro

Step 1 ( Create a Admin Install Point)

setup.exe -a

Name target directory

Step 2 ( Rename )

Diskeeper Professional Edition.msi > Rename to > diskeeper.msi

Step 3 ( Stripping Source Files)

GO to C:\Diskeeper\DKWinXP
Delete DKWinNT Folder

GO to C:\Diskeeper\program files\Executive Software\Diskeeper
Delete "DKWin9X" Folder
Delete "NoSched9x" Folder
Delete "SmartSched9x" Folder

Step 4 ( 7zip )
Download [url=]Setup.exe[/url] and Place it in c:\diskeeper Folder
Highlight and Select all Folders and Files in c:\Diskeeper Folder

Edit the settings for 7zip compression method
Rename the target 7zip file to "Setup.7z"
Set Compression to Ultra

Notice you will now have a setup.7z in your c:\Diskeeper Folder

Delete all the files and folders in c:\diskeeper folder "EXCEPT" setup.7z

Step 5 ( Tools and Finalization )

[url=]Download diskeeper_tools.rar[/url]
Alternative download if you are not a member. [url=]click here[/url]
Extract to c:\diskeeper folder, where setup.7z is located
In the diskeeper_tools.rar you will find 3 files
7zs.sfx, config.txt and run_me.exe

Click run_me.exe to "automatically" create a 7zip SFX of Diskeeper Installer.

The File DKsetup.exe is your new Diskeeper Installer. It will install silently with no dialog boxes.

* The run_me.exe contains this code
copy /b 7zs.sfx +config.txt +setup.7z DKsetup.exe
* Multi Thread only works if u have hyperthreading
