We've used Diskeeper for years. It's on every server and many workstations
inhouse. I have not seen one issue with it. Not expensive. We check the
servers once a month anyway, and they're always completely defragged. We see
obvious performance improvement on our 'problem' workstations once we
install it and configure for regular defrags.

Our network is 100% Windows 2000 clients; servers are a mix of NT4 (3) and
Win2K (8).
