The disk space requirements for Diskeeper depend on several factors. The Diskeeper
installation package is about 60 MB. After the installation is complete, Diskeeper
occupies about 46 MB of disk space. If Internet Explorer is not present on your
computer, some other needed files (hhupd.exe, 50comupd.exe, and wintdist.exe) may
be added. Further, your system may require a new or updated version of the Microsoft
Management Console (MMC), which is less than 6 MB.
Additional Software Requirements
Diskeeper 12 requires .NET 4. If .Net 4 is not installed on your system, Diskeeper will attempt to download
and install it for you. A reboot may be required due to the .Net installation.
A Note About Firewalls
As a normal part of its operation, the Diskeeper Service (DkService.exe)
acts as a Windows service on your system. If you are running a hardware or software
firewall, you may see messages indicating Diskeeper Service is trying to act as
a Windows service. These messages are expected; you can safely allow these events.
This functionality is designed to allow for support for network operations (e.g.
Remote Control) via Diskeeper Administrator.
You may also be notified that Diskeeper is trying to access the Internet. It is important to note that
Diskeeper does not access the Internet (except when you specifically use the Check for Updates feature
or you opt in to send performance data for analysis), 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.
If networkability or automatic update checking is not required, you can safely disable this.
