Folder SYSTEMTOOLS in with Diskeeper?

Recommended Posts

i use diskeeper for defragmenting my drives. but noticed that a folder SYSTEMTOOLS is created in C:\ and other times i saw it on the root of all of my drives.

inside there is nothing more that a shortcut to launch diskeeper. nothing else. i delete it.

once in a while when i open microsoft console or diskeeper to launch a defrag of my drives i get a "installshield wizard is configuring...." window of diskeeper. i wait until it finishes the so called "configuration" and then the annoying SYSTEMTOOLS folder is back with that darn shortcut file inside.

is there a way to get rid of it? is it a bug of diskeeper? any ideas? its driving mad.

thanks.

i searched for the string in the registry and i think i've fixed it.

the SYSTEMTOOLS folder installed to G:\ on my computer.

So, i moved the SYSTEMTOOLS folder to C:\Program Files\Diskeeper Corporation\SYSTEMTOOLS\

Then searched for G:\SYSTEMTOOLS\, there were only 2 instances, changed them both to the new path, loaded Computer Management and then Diskeeper. The installer didn't run!
