Any verdict on the Defrag tool yet?

Vistas sucked majorly, were there any improvements in 7 or should I be hunting down JKDefrag again?

Verdict in terms of if you should use them or which to use? Perfect disk 10 works fine on 32bit, and might on 64

The built in Windows defrag already runs in the background, when you're not using the computer.

Seems to be doing its job unobstructedly (is that a real word) in my case (is that a real pun?).

For well over 25 years (no, really) I've been using one form of defrag software or another and can safely say I've tested them all. Currently, the best solution for an effective defrag is Goldenbow's Vopt. Not only does it require a very low footprint but it's very effectiveness at sorting the files on the drive is unrivaled. The analysis engine it uses differs from other, common algorithms considerably. It also does what many other 'big' companies' software lacks. In particular, pagefile sorting (for those that still use that antiquety). Versions are available for most varieties of Windows - XP, Vista and 7.

I strongly encourage you to take a good look at it. Yes, it's ugly, but it's very effective.

By "verdict" do you mean a consensus? LOL! Microsoft says the defragger in 7 is improved. There is no disk map though and if you care about having a map (I do) then it's not sufficient. I'm using PerfectDisk 10 on Windows 7 RC1 x86 and it works very well. There's a long thread in here about defraggers where the topic was pretty much done to death, so you might want to read that one first.

I'm not really an avid user of defragging the machine. Years ago when drives were smaller and far less fast, I used to do it. Now it's pretty rare....and with newer versions of Windows whatever is happening on the backside seems to be sufficient enough for me.

I-Phone or Nexus -- what's your verdict
Hi all I rather like the new Nexus - it's very slightly slimmer than the I-phone and apps will probably be cheaper for it than the Apple. Apple's products are in general overpriced (IMO) although they do have a bit of an "X-Factor". The Nexus looks like it could be a winner --especially...
