    Unable to vote. I don't typically use a defrag program, have no favourite and am therefore unable to express a preference.

    You needed an option of 'none'

    Been using Auslogics since Vista came out.

    What is so good about some of these others?

    Thanks in advance.

    Puran Defrag here too. On one machine I paid for Disk Trix UltimateDefrag 2008 and although it has many configurations possibilities it is convoluted and slow. I regret buying it. Furthermore Vista on my main machine doesn't seem to benefit from defragmentation.

    I voted "other" beacause for several years I'm using first for all Ultimate Defrag Free and PageDefrag both in XP and W7 (32-bit). I have Puran Defrag but now it have not much to do :)

    For the record, I don't believe in regular defrags for most modern machines, especially with Windows 7 as the defragsvc runs automatically. For most people, they don't make a difference.

    I only use Defraggler or MyDefrag when the job calls for one. When they are needed, there is a massive difference in performance and usability.

    Defraggler is much faster, but purely defrags. MyDefrag can take quite a bit longer (mainly if there's a lot of data on the system drive e.g. photos, music, etc) but also attempts to 'optimise'.

    Otherwise they both just work, and have a large user base which helps with bug reporting.

    After using Freeware, like Puran and MyDefrag
    and Shareware like PerfectDisk and O&O,

    I went back to the Windows 7 Disk Defragmenter.

    Frankly, after all these years,
    I didn't notice such a notable System-Performance Improvement...;)

    I've used PerfectDisk from version 7 to 12 and several others only to go back to Windows 7's and now Windows Dev. Preview's defrag program. Set it on automatic and let it rip.

    The built in defragger for win8 is pretty nice.
