I'm wondering (and trying to reduce my ignorance) ... would not this command need to be run in an elevated command prompt window in order for the permissions to be changed on files not owned by the current user?

I wondered that as well, and tried it. Still didn't work. It's strange really, even if you run it as an admin it still shows "access_denied" to many of the directories. I fretted over it for some time and decided to just start over, and it's worked great ever since. So as I mentioned previously, I'm not sure if it was the reinstall or the reinstall+CMD that did it.

I have the same problem. It is really strange. I can launch the defragmentation manually after Diskeeper just installed. But, if I turn off the computer and power on again, it doesn't work any more. I had disabled UAC, but in vain.

I've been meaning to update this...I contacted Diskeeper support and they sent me a new installation file/key and it worked for quite a while. However it's started acting up again. I've more or less given up on it anyways. From what I hear the Windows 7 disk defrag is essentially diskeeper light or something similar. Not sure how that's possible, but regardless I have it on a recurring schedule which seems to work out for me.

I do know exactly what you mean though, reinstall it works fine until you shut down. Afterward it never works right. Maybe you should try contacting Diskeeper support. More people report problems and make the issue known, the more likely it'll get resolved. Besides, they are really nice people there. Went above and beyond for me.

Windows 7 defrag vs Diskeeper
I have been a user of diskeeper for some time, on XP and on Windows 7 since I installed build 7100 RC. Just found out today that win 7 has a built in defrag that is running also. Does it make sense to run both? Any one experience a reason that one is better than the other?
