Which one do you prefer to use and why?
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'
System Mechanic's one. (currently using it)
Been using Auslogics since Vista came out.
What is so good about some of these others?
Thanks in advance.
Flexibility and quality...
Puran Defrag because it has boot defrag, its fast and a freebie.
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.
Yeah, need a "none" option. I never use one either.....
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
I use my OS's defrag program which i think is the best!
O&O Defrag, i like it can be configured
OOps I had forget to put option "NO" on the list
Same reasons, I use only freeware software and this one is "the best".
another vote for Puran
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.
I just recently did the same thing
The built in defragger for win8 is pretty nice.
Perfect Disk. Just set & forget. On XP.
