Welcome to DiskTuna – Home of the tiny defragger

Welcome! My name is Joep van Steen and this is my website. I am the author of DiskTuna and the founder of DIY DataRecovery.nl. More about me here.


DiskTuna defrag and disk optimization

DiskTuna (formerly DiskTune) is a tiny and free disk defragmentation and optimization software, that will only run when you want it to. DiskTuna does not install background services or other crapware that slows the system down.

DiskTuna only runs on-demand.  To make maintaining your hard disk using DiskTuna as accessible as possible, it can be used from a drive’s context menu or you can use a shortcut. DiskTuna offers an easy way to create shortcuts to defragmentation and optimization tasks. More about DiskTuna …


DIY Data Recovery Software

Series on DIY Data Recovery.

In this series I will write about recovering lost data yourself, some times called ‘do it yourself’ (DIY) data recovery. I’ll try to cover:

Do’s and dont’s.
Different approaches to recovering data.
I’ll go over what you will need to do a data recovery yourself.
I will describe a straight forward data recovery; a single disk situation.
– And I will get into more complex scenarios such as RAID recovery and NAS data recovery. (coming soon!)

The software used in the examples is iRecover, available from http://www.diydatarecovery.nl. If you order iRecover from DiskTuna you’ll receive a 25% discount: Buy iRecover with a 25% discount now!

Future plans include a data recovery software reviews and a shop.


Disk Utilities

Hard disks, disk utilities and data recovery are my passion!

I am currently working on a disk utility that will, eventually, offer DiskPatch like features (see http://www.diydatarecovery.nl for details). For now, it displays S.M.A.R.T. data. I am currently implementing a Spinrite like disk scanner.

In the future I plan to review disk utility software.
