Overview

Diskeeper 12 Professional is a software program developed by Condusiv Technologies. The most common release is 16.0.1017.64, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named DkWMIClient.exe. The setup package generally installs about 74 files and is usually about 57.8 MB (60,608,770 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 58% of users of Diskeeper 12 Professional come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Japan.
