DeFraggler vs Win7 defrag?

my thoughts on both:

Defraggler (by Piriform): FAST, more detailed defragging, awesome GUI

Windows 7 defrag: SLOOOOOOOOOW to analyze, SLOOOOOW to defrag, no GUI......

both are easy to use, but i find the Win 7 defrag so bloody slow its annoying.

thoughts ?

There are some that say defrag is not necessary any longer, any truth to that?

No, you should defrag your HDD regularly

Not really regularly. Some defrag weekly or monthly or once they experience a slow down in system performance.

Has anyone compared Defraggler to Auslogics defragger? Both are top notch companies in tech world. Piriform makes CCleaner which is perhaps the most respected tool in all of tech.

I have used Auslogics Disk and Reg defraggers for over 10 years following CCleaning to keep HD's perfectly cleaned and ordered on hundreds of installs. Every owner has kept them and insisted on installing them again at reinstalls.

I try to do it monthly but sometimes it can go 2-3 months. If it takes awhile for any of the three then I know I've waited too long.

I use CONTIG from the SysInternals people.

I run contig until it tells me that there is nothing that needs defragging.

I run contig as CONTIG C: -s -q which says start at C, include subfolders and run quietly.

In addition to thurough defrafmentation Defraggler also renders a detailed listing of all fragmented files and a map of exactly where they are located on the HDD.

I've heard some say that, as long as the rest of your system is clean, a HDD could be as much as 50% fragmented and the performance decrease would be barely noticeable.
With that, I defrag at 5%
