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 Win7, 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 w7. It works much, much faster than Rasco's Perfect Disk, which is what I used to use on Vista. And you can schedule the W7 defrag just about anyway you want. It's all I need for defrag.

Now W7 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 W7 native backup function. Here Acronis TIH 2009 still rules and fortunately seems to be working flawless on my W7 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 W7 defragmenter did move boot files to the outside and that's what it's doing with the several passes it makes while defragging.
