    JKDefrag has updated to version 3.34 as of 2/1/08. I couldn't find any summary of the changes. It requires no installing. Just unzip it into whichever folder you desire. Get it at...

    Thanks,Bellgamin-still my favorite!

    Changes (in Forum)
    - Re-fixed the "DisableDefaults" bug.
    - Partial undo of the change that uses the mountpoint of a volume. It was causing
    problems during the automatic scanning for disks to be defragmented.
    - Pushed the "Zone calculation" messages down to debug level 4.
    - Fixed the VisualC example project.

    ps -the Emiel Wieldraaijer. GUI on same page is worth using-

    It's better than good -- it is superb. Fast. Safe. Stable. Does a really good defrag. Very configurable, but works good right out of the box, as well. Plus it's free.

    There are detailed usage instructions on the same web page I listed above. The GUI recommended by Hairy C is also good (so I've heard -- I don't use it myself).

    A must have program. I use it with command line or with direct shortcut. I'm using bellgamin's recommended option 9.

    Wow! Thanks bellgamin! :thumb:
    I like the options it gives you. The 2 I've tried had no options as to type of defrag.
    Using GUI, though (at least for now).
    Good program. :)

    JK benefits by doing a cleanup first,then running in safe mode with the anti virus inactive-slower but more effective.
    Guess it would be even better using it with JK installed on BartPE.

    I just disable Shadow Defender (network disabled) once in a month and run JkDefrag with option 9. All partitions are shadowed. Of course I have done lots of cleaning after Windows installation.

    I´ve always used Diskeeper (free/paid) but wanted to test some free defrag tool so I´ve decided to check out JkDefrag and it seems to perform its job quite well. But it doesn´t run from a restricted user account (as JK proclaims on his site) without a termination error so you have to use the "Run as..." command to have full access to the disks. I could change this and allow permanent full permission to the disks aswell, but then why should I then run restricted?

    I´ve checked out JK's forum for an answer but couldn´t find any good solution to this problem.

    Cerxes: I read that it should work under a Limited account too but honestly, I never thought it would. (Kind of makes sense that it shouldn't.) So anyway, whenever I do a defrag (which isn't often), I just run it under my admin account. It runs fast enough that it's never been much of a hassle for me...

    Since I´m gaming quite often, I want the system to be "on its toes" so I will use the SuRun tool to solve this minor issue.
