Gaithersburg, MD (PRWEB) September 28, 2006

Raxco Software, the leader in disk defragmentation software, announced today that its latest defragmentation software, PerfectDisk® Version 8, has shattered the nearly 30-year-old company’s all-time records for single-day downloads and online sales, racking up a 240 percent increase over the same two-week period following the launch of Version 7.

Immediately following the introduction of PerfectDisk Version 8 on September 12, Raxco recorded the highest level of ecommerce revenue it has ever earned in a single day, pulling in 68 percent more than its previous high. The company has already smashed its sales record for online revenues for a single month, before September is over.
