Resource Requirements

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 45 MB of disk space.

Additional Software Requirements

Diskeeper Server 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.

Stop fragmentation-based lags and crashes on Windows server systems in their tracks – even when demand is at its absolute highest! Lower your operating costs and increase your server performance with Diskeeper Server edition.
