    Using Diskeeper now, best automatic solution but not as configurable as many others.

    Puran Defrag, ever since it became fully-featured freeware.

    Perfect Disk ,Seems to improve performance if there was a high amount of fragmented files ,

    Windows built-in defrag, Puran Defrag and UltraDefrag.
    MyDefrag is good but usually takes a long time to process.

    Puran...does what it does, and does it well. Auslogics would be my second choice.

    W7's built-in defrag is good enough. On the XP systems, I have to use third-party because the built-in defrag does not work properly. I use Auslogic on them.

    I tried them all actually. No reason what so ever to pay for a defragger. I know Win 7 Defrag is good but it is also very slow and does not provide any really info unless you use the CMD switches. UltraDefrag is great but the GUI is ugly. My choice is Auslogics. I ran Smart Defrag for awhile. But one day I tested Win 7,Ultra,Smart,Defraggler,Puran and Auslogics. I ran an analysis with them all. All of them stated 5% fragmented but Smart Defrag indicated only .81%. So I uninstalled it. Auslogics gets the job done right and fast.

    I used to use O&O software but since I'm on Windows 7 machine I don't use it anymore. I use built-in Win 7 system defragmentation tool.

    I use O&O Defrag Professional, however at times the CPU usage is slight too high for my liking. PerfectDisk may be a better choice, but I was able to get O&O recently extremly cheaply as part of software bundle.

    Previously I was using IObit's free Smart Defrag.
