Is anyone here trialed or using diskeeper 2010.
I am running it on a small collection of servers but im having a few issues. After i have installed it it works fine when i try and do an on-demand defrag. Once i have restarted the machine each time i press the manual defrag option i get the message 'The defragment option your requested failed to start on G Drive (G. For more information refer to the diskeeper help and windows event log' and it seems to be happening on all volumes, i have checked the eventlog and there isnt much in there.
Occasionally i have errors saying that it failed to start the defrag engine on drive x, looking on the diskeeper website it says i should alter the file permissions to allow administrators and system full accessto the drive, which i have done.
On a side note i occasionally receive EventID: 11, Source Disk errors
'he driver detected a controller error on \Device\Harddisk0' I have ran chkdks /f on all my volumes before windows starts, and checked the drives using teh manufactures smart diagnostic tools which say that the drives pass.
Has anyone else had this problem, before i try it on another machine and/or contact diskeepers trial support.
Within the various diskeeper registry settings there is an option to enable controller logging, once this was turned on i was able to see what diskeeper is doing.
It would appear for each of my volumes it is logging the following when i want to perform a manual defrag.

The strange thing is that i have removed vss from the drives and checked all battery backups (and turned off diskeepers power management option) and still no change. Think i may have to ask the nice people at diskeeper.
