It depends on what you want to install&us it.

For personnal uses, previous choices are ok. But for corporate, I strongly recommand DefragManager from Systernals.

It beat all others "pro" version in the way and efficacy it works. Add to it a really practical management console, you have your tool to supervise/defrag hundreds of servers.

If you have Windows 2000, I definitely don't recommend the defragmentation software that comes with Windows. It will refuse to defragment system files, even when they're safe to defragment. It also seems to take it's sweet time. :realmad:

This is even better Jonguil!

That post was 2 years ago, dude, you're wasting your time.

It's really annoying when there are like 25 pages or something. You want to respond to something at the beginning but it ends up right at the end!

And I always miss time/date stamps :(

Well I started using Diskeeper and Perfect Disk today.

The onlt good thing about PD is that it has offline defragmentation which, judging by me, does slightly better work than DK boot defrag

Having two defragmentation programs isn't necessarily the best idea. Both programs have different ways of managing files, therefor it would essentially be a tug-of-war battle between DK and PD. Even though it may seem like a good idea, it will probably cause more harm than good.

Switching file systems might be a good idea as well. Some high-performance file systems such as HFS+ and XFS have built-in features that prevent files from fragmenting 99% of the time.

Unfortunately, getting XP to install on anything other than FAT32 or NTFS is pretty hard to do... :P

@Aegis hmm thats something Ive not considered. So XP for example could read a partition with a different filesystem say HFS+ or XFS? Would that require additional software? And what filesystem would you reccomend? :)

[edit] from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/XFS

For Windows/Linux dual boot systems, one disadvantage of XFS is that it cannot be read from Windows, unlike the older ext2/3 Linux filesystems.

There's many programs to read/write from HFS+ though. Even though this particular one isn't free, I find that MacDrive is the most convenient since it even mounts the HFS+ partition as a drive in Windows Explorer. I'm sure there's also some freeware software that offers similar functionality, but this is the only one I've tried.

Here's a comparison between fragmentation in HFS+ and NTFS:

http://www.kernelthread.com/mac/apme/fragmentation/

The G5 system has more than 95% of its disk space used up, yet it only has 42 fragments. For a non-boot drive, that G5 system with similar disk space usage contains 3 fragments. Keep in mind this is without using any fragmentation software.

hi everyone,

when it comes to defrag, i always recommend diskeeper.

my computer consulting firm has about 600 clients. often we get called regarding "healthy" PCs that seems to run slow. after extensive research, we went with diskeeper.

besides all the other great feature, the makers of diskeeper actually created the defrag that comes with microsoft windows! so, the way i see it, they would know the best about how the windows operating system works and how best to defrag the files it contains! :thumbup
