Will you be using Windows 7's new Defragger?

After reading the article at Engineering Windows 7 : Disk Defragmentation – Background and Engineering the Windows 7 Improvements I was more inclined to use the defragger that comes with Windows rather than a 3rd party one.

I believe it to be more thorough than the Vista one and maybe some 3rd party ones as well since it takes several passes. It also is more compatible with Windows 7's new version of NTFS which 3rd party programs wont be currently.

So I shall be using it at least during the time of the beta to get the full Windows 7 experience.

I use Diskeeper Pro 2009 as I have a license for my Vista and it allows several instances on the same machine.

Not quite sure yet, I have a license with Perfect Disk so it makes sense to use it in the moment, but maybe in the future??

Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit) dual boot with Fedora KDE
 
 

Absolutely loved the fact that it takes multiple passes. At the same time regret that there is still no visual display and no way to view reports as to which files are fragmented and how much.

So, yes! I would use it since it provides all the basic functionality sans the hassles!

I have been using it. The multi-pass feature is good. I have also been using jkdefrag which is also good. Not sure which is best yet?

I've been using the Windows 7 defragger. One feature I like is the weekly schedule. Set it and forget it. The defragger (and the system backup) run at a time when I'm not using my pc. Very convenient.
