    Hello Forum,

    I recommend JKdefrag also -- I use the command line...

    Start>Run>JkDefragCmd -a 9 c:>OK

    The above defrags & aligns files according to their access dates (option 9).

    Just like to toss in my thanks guys, the Topic author BadCompany and all the repliers so far.
    With Ultimate Defrag i just haven't felt to bother with JK, but out of curiosity after reading your approvals/satisfaction with it i decided to D/L it myself. I used to be a bit turned by anything console, especially a Defragger, but this really looks IMPROVED.

    With Pagedefrag, Contig and JKDefrag (to name a few) you don't need Diskeeper or Perfect Disk.

    The best online defragger is JkDefrag :)
    For offline I choose PerfectDisk, but it is not free...

    I haven't yet, but I plan to, once it moves out of beta. I am very hesitant to try a beta defragger on my drives while it's stability and reliability are not yet established.

    As for the defrag programs, I use Diskeeper Pro 2k7. It's not free, but I am happy with it's performance and it meets my requirements.
