VDI enables you to:
• Manage desktops centrally, simplifying desktop installations, backups and maintenance.

Watch DiskView and SplitView in action

DiskView and SplitView are both highly interactive, and static screenshots are not quite as effective as watching them in action.

We have just uploaded a flash demo of DiskView in action. The demo can be seen at http://www.diskview.com/flashtour.htm and gives a quick and effective overview of DiskView. This five minute demo shows how seamlessly DiskView integrates with Windows Explorer, and how it can be an effective tool in managing disk space usage and visualizing its health. Hope you enjoy it!
