    Hi,

    So I was wondering... is there any real advantage in using Diskeeper 9 LITE instead of Windows built-in defragger seeing as the Lite version has no Smart Schedule, etc.

    Should I bother with the lite version at all? (well it's free)

    ive never tried diskeeper lite, but i dont rele like Diskeeper anyways.

    i do like Contig + Power Defragmenter GUI however. its fast and doesnt need installation.

    i havent tried O&O Defrag 2000 either, but i have used the newer O&O Defrag v8 which is pretty good.

    I tried Contig / Power Defrag GUI some time ago but seeing as fast it was I kind of doubted if it actually did anything :p

    The XP defrag followed by Contig + Power Defragmenter GUI can not be beat for free. Run in safe mode for that little extra touch of neatness. ;)

    That is how I do it. Works very well for me. your mileage may vary. I do not always run them in safe mode however. Maybe once every two weeks....depending on how much I torture my PCs. :D

    I installed it (and buzzsaw) and the process was using about 35MB of RAM. Is that normal?

    Actually, I use Dirms in the past...the older version (DOS screen). And its really cool coz its very different in a way you look at how it defrags watching the screen. ;) It really works and makes my system responds faster. I did not use Buzzaw, coz it really eats up that big amount of ram memory...besides I don't like defragmenter running in the background...I am afraid it might interfere in some way or another some operations of my disk drives and files. I only uses the manual defrag style...when fragmentations is more or less 10%. :cool: I advise you to install.. and use only the manual defrag operation.

    For now, I am using O&O Defrag Pro 8.5...and I only uses the manual operation. :D
