Which Defragmenter do you recommend?

Hey guys. I was wondering which defragmenter's good to use.. The good and bad of them, anything worth knowing. Thanks.

P.S. Currently using Auslogic's Disk Defrag

Make sure you get one that is compatible with VSS if you use System Restore.

I think the windows one is the best, but the only other one I have tried is Diskeeper

Hi cheewongken, I am not a computer guru by any means. I have always used the defragmenter that came with Windows until recently. I tried defraggler and it was ok. I then tried the Auslogics disk defrag and to me, it made my laptop run smoother and quicker. I don't have any timers to prove any kind of speed increase, I'm just going by the feel of my machine. I am not a TV watcher, so my spare time is spent on my computers, and I tend to notice any kind of changes to my machines. At this point, I believe you are using the best free one on the market. Have a great day !!!

I have used Vopt for 10+ years, It is not free but you can try it for a short time without being crippled.
vopt.com is their web site and they have versions for most any windows version.
goldenbow software is the author and they do a good job.

I don't have any financial interest, just like their software,

Go with Auslogic Disk Defragger, get it at Download.com, you won't be sorry later...

Hi cheewongken...

For the "Free" defragger's I have tried and tested Defraggler, Auslogic Disk Defragger, and Smart Defrag (Just to name a few). The best, IMHO, is the free "Smart Defrag" form Iobit. I have used it on my WinXP, WinVista, and Win7 PC's and Laptop's...works good.

I prefer to use the built in defrag in Windows 7. For previous versions, I use/recommend Auslogics Disk Defrag.

I also use Auslogic. But have Puran Defrag for it's boot defrag capabilities, and also have but rarely use My Defrag, and the Power Defragmenter GUI for Contig. A Guy

^ is what I prefer. Has all the bells and whistles and great performance: defrags quickly and quietly in the background without trouble. The latest version also has fragmentation prevention features. Much better than the windows default IMHO.
