    Alright Im looking for a disk defrager that will allow me to defrag as many system files as possible. Im currently using Puran. I love it, its light, fast, stable, and does a good job, but Im looking for something that does a defrag in a bit more depth and has more options on how the defrag should be done.

    Current contenders are O&O, PerfectDisc, Auslogics Disc Defrag, and Ultra Defrag (open source). Any others besides Diskeeper that should be considered? Id love open source, but some times open source doesnt beat paid software in terms of performance.

    I use O&O V12 and really like it. (I tried almost all the defraggers i could find and decided O&O was the best IMO) :D

    Maybe you should try all the options and then decide :rolleyes:

    If you'd like to try O&O Defrag Professional Version 11 you can get a free license here:

    http://www.oo-software.com/home/en/special/defragspecial/

    I know it's not the latest version (ver. 12), but at least it won't cost you anything to try it and see if you might like the product line.

    Ive used O&O and Perfectdisc, but not really sure which one is faster or has the more advanced options. Ive never used Auslogics or Ultradefrag, but from the looks of it they arent even on the same level.

    Yes its very nice, they have implemented a number of my suggestions (I may not of been the only person who did), to optimise the defragmentation process, being able to balance file access performance, refragmentation rates and defragmentation times, infact they have pretty much answered all my rants about defrag tools in general.

    This may be the first defrag tool since Diskeeper 10 that I would be prepared to pay for.

    Right now Im using O&O v12 and like it. I have one question though. Does it allow boot time defrag of important system files without crippling my system?

    Really don't see how auslogics or ultradefrag are more indepth or thorough than Puran.
