The disk space requirements for Diskeeper Administrator depend on several factors.
On most systems, Diskeeper Administrator will need 80 megabytes or less. Allow up
to 450 MB of extra free space for temporary files during the installation. If Microsoft®
.NET connection software is not installed on your computer, this requires approximately
70 MB of additional disk space. Further, your system may require a new or updated
version of the Microsoft Management Console (less than 6 MB). Finally, if Internet
Explorer®; is not present on your computer, some other needed files
(hhupd.exe, 50comupd.exe, and wintdist.exe) may be added.
Additional Software Requirements
If you install the MSDE when you first configure the Diskeeper Administrator database,
it initially requires less than 70 MB of disk space, although as the database grows,
the additional disk space requirements will increase. Also, the MSDE uses the Microsoft
Data Access Components (MDAC), which will require approximately 26 additional MB
of disk space if not already present on your system.
A Note About Firewalls
As a normal part of its operation, Diskeeper Administrator DkSAdmin.exe acts as
a Windows service on your network. If you are running a hardware or software firewall,
you may see messages indicating Diskeeper Administrator is trying to act as a Windows
service. These messages are expected; you can safely allow these events.
You may also be notified that Diskeeper Administrator is trying to access the Internet.
It is important to note that Diskeeper Administrator does not access the Internet
(except when you specifically use the Check for Updates feature), but it does use
Windows mechanisms that may trigger these alerts from your firewall. Again, these
messages are expected and you can safely allow the events.
