    Puran & Auslogics are the two best defraggers I've used. Puran wins the tie-breaker on account of it having a boot-time defrag.

    But I hear Windows 7 has a perfectly adequate built-in defragger. If I found that to ring true, I'd just use it. The XP one leaves much to be desired though.

    Defraggler, I used to use Puran Defrag, but I suspect, that it damaged my HDD.

    Well I can not really say it was it, but when I stopped using it, it helped a lot, no more 50 times freezing a day, only about 1-5 times now.

    AusLogic Disk Defrag works fine for me. It has optimized option and auto shutdown pc after defrag. :cool:

    My favorites are Puran Defrag and the open-source UltraDefrag here:

    http://ultradefrag.sourceforge.net/en/index.html

    However, both are unsigned programs. For free defrag tools with signed publisher, I'd go with either Auslogics or Defraggler.

    if its still freezing up 1-5 times a day you have other issues than the defrag program.

    Im now using puran even though it is a unsigned program.
    It appears to be clean and not malicious in any form although if anyone knows different then please say so.
    It seems to do a good job.:thumb:

    In the rare occasions when I feel the need to defragment a partition, I install O&O Defrag, do the job, then uninstall it.

    None. I have never noticed an improvement on Vista/7 and it makes my incremental backups larger if the files get moved around.

    SSD is the way to go. No more faffing about with defragmentation on the windows drive. The built in defrag will do just fine for all other drives, not that it will make much difference on them............I have never noticed any and rarely defrag those.
