Windows 8 defrag, Windows Server 2012 defrag and more coming soon

We have reached Release Candidate 1 for PerfectDisk 12.5 Service Pack 5, as we head toward our planned release date of October 10th. Support for Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 will be included in this service pack.

We are not able to make this RC 1 available to anyone else at this time — thanks for your patience — October 10th will be here soon!
