    And sooooo good (talking about version 1.9.30.76 here).

    MST has brought a great concept in defragmenting. MST runs in the background as a service. If it sees files added or changed to a monitored partition, it quickly determines if the time is optimal to defragment them. Defragmentation is done automaticaly for you and it is done efficiently and safely. When MST defragments there is no noticeable drop in system performance. You don't have to f... around with defrag schedules anymore:D

    Very highly recommended :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Can you shut that service off. Only thing I want deciding when to defrag is me. Doing a copy/update with FDISR, and having a defrag kick off is not good.

    Yes, you can. You also can defrag manualy.

    What MST sets apart from other defraggers is that it defrags on-the-fly.

    Don't you want a pc that is always optimized ? o_O

    O.K. a competitor has nicked, uh I mean has been "inspired".

    Love this one:

    "Diskeeper 2007 marks the release of the FIRST-EVER ;) :D truly automatic defragmenter. Through the use of InvisiTasking™ technology, Diskeeper 2007 defragments on the fly".

    And, does it work?

    Martin STiemerling, sue them !

    LOL
    it is there own technology thou. is mst defrag as advanced as invistasking? can it defrag around you with out ever slowing you down? i think not. i think mst defrag uses i/o to monitor the cpu levels which is outdated technology. It uses there own set and forgot stuff.
    so technically it is the first truly automatic defrag.
    to many people sue people these days.
    its like the american company that makes remotes trying to sure nintendo over the wii when it goes and sale and sells tons lol.

    Was not meant seriously.

    Dunno, I did not use the latest DK (and I'm not going to)
    MST simply works. It does it's job efficiently and safely. No baked air like "Max Accel Optimization" or other verbal diarrhea.

    You bet it can, not the slightest slowdown (using this proggie for > 1 year now). YOU can not judge about it, because you did not even triail MST (see your post above).

    First triail this wonderful proggie and then report back.


    Digitaly yours,

    @egghead,
    true I haven't tryed mst defrag because the site wont let me download it.
    im not saying that it will slow your pc down but it doesnt say it will or wont.
    diskeeper say it wont ever slow you down and it didnt when i tryed it a while ago. its annoying i cant retry the diskeeper 2007 as a trail now ive disabled some unneeded windows services and got kaspersky instead of f-secure.
    update the download now works.
    i might try soon.
    is it 35percent discount off the $15?
    if it is i might buy it anyway lol.
    so you recommend mst defrag?
    did you try the versions of diskeeper perfectdisk and 0&0 defrag before you got mst defrag?
    i think automatic defragging is a good idea by a driver in the background i guess thats why diskeeper invented invistaking.
    its odd that perfectdisk doesnt do it. and 0&0 doesnt do it eiether.
    is it better to get one that defrags in the background with a driver or is it better to get it to run say daily?
    i like 0&0 defrag but also like diskeeper 2007.
    mst defrag seems good also.
    its a hard choice.

    The 35% is off the $15.

    If you buy now, version 2 is free. Otherwise, a major version upgrade will be 50% off the $15.

    You won't notice anything when Mst Defrag is working in the background. That is what I like. Works very well with FD-ISR. No conflicts.

    Hi, folks: From what I understand so far, v.1.9 was relaesed on Dec.14,2005, and few minor upgrades on builds came afterwards. The latest version is 1.9.30.76. And did someone say to this effect; buy this version now,v.2.0 is free for you when it is available. Sounds to me it IS a pre-christmas present for yourself(35% of $15 is about same as cost of diner for two at McDonald's). Just could not resist it.:rolleyes:

    Ashampoo Magic Defrag also defrags on the fly. It's something like $12.and change. I tried it last night, but decided against it. I need to have more control over defrag for the same reasons Pete mentioned above. I also trailed Diskeeper 2007 Pro Premier and canned that also (although I use DK Pro 9 on my other boxes) I settled on Ultimate DeFrag for my main box. As mentioned elsewhere "it's immature" but IMO it shows promise.

    I´ve read it, but there aren´t much info. Immature = unstable ?

    The way I take the comment is: not as refined, not as many options...

    For instance, if you want to do a scheduled defrag using "consolidate" mode you would select Consolidate as a "global preference" rather than a local preference in the scheduling mode.(totally different menue) I found this rather confusing. (until I contacted support) I had my answer / explanation in a matter of hours, not days :) My thought's about this app is that it has the potential to be a real contender. After a defrag I was left w/ .046% fragmented files. I excluded $ISR & Optpost fw from the defrag which left 300 some odd files fragmented.

    Give it a try there's a 14Day trial not 7 as stated on the website.

    hth,
