Off and on, in my spare time, I've been searching for new programs that do the same jobs as Scandisk or Defrag but at a faster rate. It's like these programs haven't changed in more than ten years. I have a 20 GB HD, not big but it takes Scandisk 150 minutes to do a thorough job. It took the Defrag nearly 5 hours to do it. (This is with everything else turned off.) Surely someone has found a speedier way of getting the job done? Any suggestions or links will be most appreciated. TIA.
