Windows 7: DO NOT INSTALL PARAGON PRODUCTS. destroyed win7 install

DO NOT INSTALL PARAGON PRODUCTS. destroyed win7 install

Pretty damn amazed this even happened, I selected Defrag partition, it stated that it needed to restart to complete, since I was doing things I clicked cancel hoping to finish it later. The second I clicked cancel 100 error messages came up, the Paragon software showed 2 giant partitions and then the HDD spun down.

I'm now running Vista SP1 and intend to stay here. Farewell 7.

Are you using paragon defrag? I advise you uninstall ASAP incase you make a misclick rofl. 20 pixels away is DOOM.

Why would you forsake Windows 7 just because of 1 piece of software? Personally i've only ever used Windows native defrag & it works fine. Not all defrag software is compatible with Windows 7, and I wouldn't trust anything other than antivirus software 100%

I use software at my own risk, if I have to re-install because of a piece of software then I don't use that software again & look for an alternative.

Don't fault Windows 7, I've never installed a Paragon product since it hosed a RAID I had running XP Pro. It's another piece of doomware I added to my list.

I am pretty impressed by the resident defrag function in Windows 7. It works much, much faster than Rasco's Perfect Disk, which is what I used to use on Vista. And you can schedule the Windows 7 defrag just about anyway you want. It's all I need for defrag.

Now Windows 7 back & restore functions are another matter alltogether. I found it impossible, after booting up into repair mode from the installation disk, to access an image I had created on an external USB drive using the Windows 7 native backup function. Here Acronis TIH 2009 still rules and fortunately seems to be working flawless on my Windows 7 installation.

It moves files to the outside of the disk for faster reading which is good when you're using a 5400rpm notebook drive. Unfortunately AFAIK the windows software doesn't.

Good point, but to be honest i'd look for an alternative.

I thought the Windows 7 defragmenter did move boot files to the outside and that's what it's doing with the several passes it makes while defragging.
