    I’m just curious. What disk Defragmenter/s are you presently using right now?

    Why you choose it instead of other disk defraggers? :rolleyes: o_O

    I have already tried several paid and free disk defragmenters in the past, some are good but some hugs my system and memory and they are very slow. Right now, I am using the JKDefrag v3.6…coz I found out that it is fast in defragging and optimizing my drives (default mode). My hard drives are getting faster and faster every time I used it. As my file system is FAT32, I know that it’s more prone to fragmentations than NTFS, so I have to use a fast defragger to maintain it in good shape. (My drives are less than 20Gig each, so FAT32 is a better option coz it’s faster). Another thing was that it’s very cute in size, and there is no set-up and installations, it runs with very low cpu and memory footprints…and no running services in the background when it’s not in use. :D ;)

    Best of all, it’s an open freeware software program…wherein you can contribute your “secret techno” talents for its improvements. Its forum is very active and the author answers all questions and suggestions for the enhancements and improvements of this program. ;)

    Perfect Disk. Several reasons.

    1) Tried 4 of them and liked PD best.
    2) Compatiblity with FDISR
    3) Excellent Raxco support.

    On my notebook:
    Online: UltimateDefrag (UD) because of its flexibility and methods to optimize my disk.
    Offline: The current version of UD doesn't have offline defrag :(, so I use PerfectDisk because it is the best for offline defrag.

    At work:
    JkDefrag, but I'm also watching the progress of the free IObit SmartDefrag...

    I'm using Diskeeper Home and it does the job. I like the way it defrags in the background.

    :D This freebie, or any other Defragger, cannot compete with the offline job made by PerfectDisk!

    @VaMPiRiC_CRoW - have u tried UD's boot time defrag? u can enable it in the options window.

    anyways my choice is UltimateDefrag. its small and has an interesting concept. plus the graphical representation of the disk looks really cool.

    Yes, but it does nothing, at least on system... :(

    I already email the developers about this and few other things, and they tell me that will be implemented in future versions...

    Don´t all offline defraggers do the same thing (defrag files locked by the OS such as swap file, boot files, registry, etc)?

    PerfectDisk of course, I'm a FirstDefense-ISR user and these users want only the very best, not such a mediocre software like MS Disk Defragmenter.

    I dump PerfectDisk in the past coz its slow, especially their offline defragging method. So now I uses PageDefrag for offline defragging of paging file etc....of sysinternals....and it is fast. ;)

    I found Perfect Disk 7 too slow. If you haven't tried version 8 you might be surprised

    Yes, all offline defraggers tries to do the same thing, but only PerfectDisk is really effective on this area, because it defrags and put the files on the best place... ;)

    I also didn't like PD before, but after tried the last version I was really impressed with its efficient...

    You can try to run both and see the difference...

    Diskeeper 2007 pro
    why?
    because it defrags my drive in realtime with no slowdown
    also the support is amazing!
    there was a bug that made diskeeper keep accessing the floopy drive it was fixed and a build updated in one day!
    i tryed perfectdisk but found defragging slow and lots of processes added.
    diskeeper 2007 normaly just has dkservice running.
    diskeeper always has dkservice running but since it doesnt slow you down inface since its defrags in realtiem all it does it speed up the pc.
    it costs more than perfectdisk but its worth it IMO.

    I just use contig.exe by itself. Very quick fast, and gets rid of all the fragmentation. What else is there to say?

    Just tried contig.exe with Rejzor frontend. Very interesting. Initially much slower than PerfectDisk 8 but presumably faster as it settles. Strange that the most recently used files are placed completely differently than with PD 8.

    Contig only defrags. It doesn´t have a file placement strategy.

    VC~ I believe you also use UltimateDefrag, so should I take your comments (above) to mean that you find PD does a better job at file placement than UD? :doubt: ~pv
