    On my Win 98 system I use Norton Utilities' Speed Disk, which I like a lot.
    However, on Win XP I find that Windows defrag does an excellent job, so although I've been trying various third party applications, I've decided not to install one.

    Just my 2 cts tho...

    I use O&O Professional on XP Pro SP2 and find it useful as it allows for various types of defrag. methods. The basic space defrag is normally enough to keep NTFS file system in order. A full defrag. is only necessary if very badly fragmented although slower to use this mode it is still faster than XP's own.

    I've been using Perfectdisk for over two years on XP. I tried all the others before I settled on Perfectdisk.

    Do I recall a Defragger called 'Fast Degrag' that was promoted somewhere on Wilders.....I seem to remember having it for a while....it was pretty good....

    If anyone can enlighten me I wouldn't mind having it back again...

    i downloaded DefragMentor Lite 1.0
    This FREE utility allows you to defragment files in just a couple of mouse clicks in Windows Explorer. DefragMentor Lite implements a friendly user interface and contains a boot-time component, which allows defragmenting system files (e.g. registry and paging files) when the computer is booting up.
