Defraging

I use the W7 defrag setup so is there a freebie I can use that is better.

Thanks

I use and very much like degraggler as it stays visible and you can see what it is
doing.

A question about defragmenting my C: drive:
(this should be addressed to someone who really, really knows Windows 7)

Vista had this user journal file $UsnJrnl which would not defragment no matter what you did.
I remember I had to enter an FSUTIL command to delete it (along with all of my restore points) in order to shrink
my C: drive down enough to create another partition. Without the FSUTIL command, it would not shrink enough.

I do not see that file on Windows 7, however I do see System Volume Information at the end of the drive
(in the same place that $UsnJrnl was). The sectors are visible while defragmenting with Defraggler and one can see
what they contain.

After I installed Windows 7, I didn't worry very much about defragmenting the C: drive, but when I did, I noticed
that it was 27% defragmented. I ran Defraggler for a very long time and it ended up not being able to totally
defragment down to 0%. It only got to 11% as I recall. It would not go any further!

Here is the question, is there anything that can be done to alleviate this? To defragment the C: drive completely
to zero percent fragmentation?

Thanks in advance!

Didn't you mean it was 27% FRAGMENTED?

Have you gotten it under 11% yet? That's quite a bit of fragmentation for post-defragging, IMO.

all my windows drives show zero percent fragmentation when I test frag levels.
