I have been using Raxco's "Perfect Disk" defragger for some time now and wouldn't use anything else. It is by far (according to my tests of other defraggers) the best you can get.

Is Disckeeper a disc defragmenter. I used to use it.
It was fast.

Two other very good defraggers are PerfectDisk and Diskeeper. They are free to try and inexpensive to purchase. Thanks for this article!

I use System Mechanic, and I have been happy with the results. My one "con" is that a large external hard drive will slow it down a bit.

I think Diskeeper, although not free,is very good. It is easy to install, causes no other problems, and quietly and effectively, gets on with the job.

Have used this for a few years now and can highly recommend it,
Chris

On XP I regularly use MyDefrag (was JK Defrag), a free package which was recommended in Windows Secrets a year or two ago. Although it (says it) uses the underlying Windows code, it doesn't appear to stop and restart from the beginning regularly (which Windows defrag did when not run in safe mode).

Try MyDefrag

One of the columns I receive highly recommended FREE UltraDefrag 4.4.0, which I have used and find very satisfactory. Do you not recommend this one? It does include a boot time defrag which runs every time the computer is turned on, and pretty well removes any need for periodic maintenance.

Two that come immediately to mind are MyDefrag (formerly JK Defrag)and Auslogics Disk Defrag. Both are quite quick for regular defragging and provide more advanced options as well.

There is also an earlier version of Ultimate Defrag that is free and still works quite well for me. Freeware Geeks hosts a copy. Though it isn't listed as Win7 compatible, it has worked just fine for me.

Enjoy,

bem

I tried Pagdefrag on Win 7 and it didn't completely work. Wouldn't touch the registry hives.
From what I understand, same thing with Vista. It was wonderful on XP though.

I've been reading lately about quite a few new disk defragmenting programs actually being 'scareware', although none of the one's you mentioned are. The following are 'scareware':

* HDDRepair

* HDDRescue

* HDDPlus

* UltraDefragger

* ScanDisk

* Defrag Express

* WinHDD

MyDefrag (formerly JkDefrag)is what I have used for years and will hopefully continue to use for years.

I have a Hp X495 Home Server and Was wondering what would be a good defrag program that I could load and work with Windows Home Server as that is the OS for the server ? I use Auslogics Disk Defrag on my 2 xp machines and my laptop with win 7. Great program.

I have been using computers for going on 15 years, and I don't claim to know everything there is to know about computers, but I have found that the system defragger is quite efficient at defragging the hard drive. I don't think it's wise to mess with it. Whatever you do, do NOT use Smart Defrag!

I now use PageDefrag set on every boot up and Auslogics Disk Defrag once every 2 weeks in XP. These are the fastest and I feel the least damaging to the HDD compared to others. After trying many others for a while, which make the HDD do overtime and by it self can lead to wear and tear on it. To prevent that is the intend of defrag in the first place, besides speed up the computer it self.

Having used most defraggers mentioned, except for the Norton's, I am now using Glarysoft's Disk SpeedUp and love it! It's FREE and WORKS.

I first used Glary's Utilities free program and liked the way it cleaned up my PC, fast and efficient. I went back to Glarysoft's website to see what else they had to offer. I was looking for a 'new' disk defragger program and found Disk SpeedUp, gave it a try and love it.

I am mightily impressed with the Glarysoft programs and suggest giving them a try.

I've been using Auslogistics, which is a freebie that does either a straight defrag, but has an optimization mode that I use on a regular, random basis :) So far, so good!

I use "Diskeeper" for many years and it does an excellent job.
