    You should not use 3rd party defragers with RX installed. This is made clear in the users guide and is mentioned frequently here on the forum. What I do is regularly defrag using Rxs built in defrag utility (but this only defrags the snapshots) and then 1x per month I uninstall Rx, do general PC maintenance (defrag, image drive using a 3rd party imager, clean registry, etc) and then reinstall Rx. Its a bit of a nuisance (but Rx is well worth it) and if you do not do this you will find that your PC becomes sluggish over time and at that point you will have to do it anyway,,,,may as well keep things crisp and sharp by doing it regularly when you want to. --- and having drive images is always a good thing in case of a drive melt-down.

    Interesting way to use Rollback and Imaging Software - thank you. I might try that - right now I use only Shadow Protect.

    What I discovered, and indeed, not science, was that JK defrags used to take maybe as long as seven eight minutes but since I'd always defrag before reinstalling AyRecovery and I also used its defrag, that JK would only take about two minutes after an uninstall so I figured it wasn't worth it.
