Windows Defragmenter

#1

For all you Windows users out there, whether it be XP or Vista, do you guys use it’s Defragmenter or use another program, like Diskeeper, System Mechanic, or somethin’ else? I remember years ago, this computer dude told me Windows Defrag program sucked, but I forget what he suggested to use. What do you guys use/suggest? All opinions and ideas are welcome. Thanks fellow freaks.

Hi :slight_smile:
You could try [B][U]iobitsmartdefrag:[/U][/B] Which is free. :clap::bigsmile:
Personally I now use PerfectDisk2008. Which is not free. :rolleyes:


#3

I use O&O Defrag. It’s not free but it does a good job from what I can tell.


#4

PerfectDisk on my older build. O&O on my new build.

I like them both.

Hi :slight_smile:
You can’t be using 0&0 with Vista surely?
PerfectDisk2008 is the one for Vista user’s.
0&0 for XP & earlier…Maybe! :bigsmile:

Nice title by the way.

XP Pro or nothin’! I recently got a new laptop and downgraded from Vista, heh. Thanks for your quick responses everybody, mucho appreciated. I think I’m gonna purchase that O&O Defrag Pro, from what I’ve read so far, alot of ppl seem to like and suggest it like you guys. Thanks again!

Used O&O for over 2 years now, it’s damn good. Suggest your OS drive defrag first with Stealth & then complete name, it will be slow the first time. For storage drives, Stealth should do just fine. This of course would be after Analyzing Volumes.

Windows defrag is a stripped down version of Diskeeper, identical. I use Diskeeper and really like it. It runs on schedules and is completely invisible.


#10

beef barley, I like ur location description, Region 1, LOL, nice.


#11

Well it originally was done to make it easier for people trying to help me, by knowing what Region the Dvd was purchased. But hey! if it brought a smile to your face, that’s good as well. BTW I see what you mean now, I had never looked at it that way. :smiley: :smiley:

i dont like that O&O wont run unless you have the O&O Defrag service set as automatic. i dont want it running unless i call for it. so to fix this i made a small file to start the service and open O&O defrag.

with notepad copy past this and save the file as start.bat

@ECHO OFF
dfrgsvc.exe
oodcnt.exe
@echo Done

make a new shortcut pointing to start.bat

go to start, run, services.msc, find O&O Defrag and set it to Manual, restart computer.

now O&O service and O&O defrag will only run after you open start.bat, and O&O defrag will open and run like it should.

@beef barley
Regardless, only a true CDFreak would put that as their location, props, LOL.:slight_smile:

UltimateDefrag
You’ll see the biiiiig difference.

Hi :slight_smile:
OK so 0&0 says it is Vista ready.
With Vista 64 bit this just ain’t so.
Vista locks certain files, which 0&0 leaves.
This results in an area that isn’t defragged.
This area grows slowly but surely, with continued defragging.

UltimateDefrag, is very good & I did consider this before going for PerfectDisk2008.
Cost being possibly the factor. (Plus I preferred the interface).
Edit: the ease of defragging USB/Flash drive ect, was also something I liked.
However you can get 25% off currently with a free upgrade to [B][U]UltimateDefrag2008:[/U][/B] *.
This new version is supposedly due very soon.
They have emailed current owners/interested parties.

*What If I Recently Purchased UltimateDefrag?
At the time we release UltimateDefrag 2008, all people who purchased the product in the last 90 days will be entitled to a FREE upgrade to UltimateDefrag 2008.

Hi :slight_smile:
As there is a screenshot of 0&0, Ithought I’d throw in my PD2008.

Nice software. How much does it cost?

Hi :slight_smile:
[B][U]Check it out here:[/U][/B]
They often have online offers. The last was " coupon code" GET2008NOW , but this maybe out of date. Couild be worth trying as it was 20% discount.
Even without, still cheaper than 0&0. :wink:

90% placebo effect :stuck_out_tongue:

Every time I see these threads about defragging, antivirus, regcleaners, crap cleaners,… I smile. Almost forgot they existed. And isn’t it sad you still need all this stuff in Vista… it’s like time stood still for the last 10 years. :slight_smile:
