    Using the PowerMode option, I found this is really fast and unbelievable in defragmenting my drives. :eek:

    I was wondering if I still need to use other defragmenter if I am already using PowerDefrgmenter GUI w/ contig.exe…. :rolleyes:

    What really is the difference of using PowerDefragmenter GUI w/ contig.exe compared to Diskeeper Lite or other commercial defragmenters? Do they produced different results or does a different job of defragmenting the drives? Is this more “effective”? o_O :cautious:

    Is this really safe…what’s the recommended frequency of using PowerDefragmenter GUI w/ contig.exe? :rolleyes: o_O

    Lastly…what really is the difference of using the options PowerMode from other defragmenting options like just Defragmenting Disks? o_O

    I'll tell ya I'm impressed by these two together. Well to answer imo dk or dkl are pos so anythings better. Even VoptXP which I think is trickery. But I tested PowerDefragmenter GUI w/ contig.exe against O&O free. Almost the same & former is much quicker. And O&O is quick to start with.

    Against commercial apps, the biggy for me is lack of background mode and scheduling, both important when you have machines that run 24/7, or you have a laptop that you cannot be sure will be plugged into the mains at the correct time to defrag, in MY case, background defragging is the MAIN feature I require.

    But as far as plain manual defraggin goes, stick to free, I dont care for fancy defrag modes (knowing how quickly refragmentation occurs).
