Still quite expensive per GB at least for my needs/budget.
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.
not sure how to answer since i use a number of different ones
Defraggler, I used to use Puran Defrag, but I suspect, that it damaged my HDD.
how did puran damage your HHD please.?
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.
My favorites are Puran Defrag and the open-source UltraDefrag here:
However, both are unsigned programs. For free defrag tools with signed publisher, I'd go with either Auslogics or Defraggler.
I use Tuneup Disk Defrag.
if its still freezing up 1-5 times a day you have other issues than the defrag program.
I use Windows own built in defragmenter.
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.
Well, now we finally have an answer to the age old question: what disk defragmenter would Beethoven use?
I dont think ludwig would have been interested somehow.
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.
Windows built in
Since i saw this poll i re installed O&O to give it a try, good app!
Was using Auslogics, switched to windows because most people on here prefer it.
Puran Defrag Free Edition w/auto defrag on XP
and Windows Disk Defragmenter on W7.
I just tried to vote but it seems to be a single option poll, i wanted to vote for Defragger (Which i use in my laptops) and O&O Defrag (Desktop).
MyDefrag is the new JkDefrag so im using MyDefrag! That is when im using Win7. Ill run it once every 2 months depending on how many files I moved around.
none at the moment.
apparently it's not needed in Linux.lol
None... I don't think it's needed....
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.
