Do You Use Diskeeper to Defrag SQL Server Data and Log Files?

    hi experts,
    A few years ago - SQL Server 7 and 2000 - many recommended to NOT use Diskeeper on .mdf and .ldf files. Configure Diskeeper to bypass database files.
    Has that changed? I found this article on this website that advices using Diskeeper on your SQL Server machine: http://www.sql-server-performance.com/software/review/diskeeper_2007_p1.aspx

    I'm using 2005 on Windows 2003 servers. Of course I do the usual reindexing and index degragging but should I also be using Diskeeper (the 2rd party tool, not the worthless built-in Diskeeper by Micorosoft) ?

    What are you doing for your 2005 database?

    Thanks, John
