Windows 7: Defragment.

Defragment.

Don't know where else to post this, so if this is not the correct section, please move.
I was wondering, whats the best software(Free preferably), that I can use to defrag my drives?
Really though, there is so much out there, I can't choose anymore.

Why not use the integrated one?

Or maybe here:

Defraggler v1.21.209

Integrated?

Please inform me more.
I'm on Vista between.
(Sorry, I'm not really familiar with system tool sets and stuff).

And isn't CCleaner from Piriform too?
In that case I'll give it a look, since all of their softwares are pretty good and professional.

Yes, CCleaner is from Piriform aswell.

If you go in Computer, right click your disk and "Properties" Tab then "Tools", Defrag Now...Tab

In Windows 7, there's very little reason to use a third party defragger. The built-in one handles the job just fine.

Well, I'm on Vista now.

Either way, I'm using Piriforms now, from all the time using CCleaner and other software from Piriform, I gotta say, they do their job good, no ads, no subscriptions, and still, one of the best software.

Ah, your system specs said you were using Windows 7. Either way, I guess Defraggler would work fine for you, but Vista's defragger did fine for me as well.

Sorry!

I needed to do a emergency back-up so it went back to Vista.
And since Vista is not as horrible as it used to be back then I decided to stay on it.

I'll update my specs, one more question, since the name of this forum is SevenForums, can we still discuss/talk about Vista and other operating system or is this forum solely for the purpose of discussion on 7?

I don't know of any official rules, but I think it would be fine, considering many suggestions, best practices, and advice works on Vista and Windows 7 the same. Vista isn't a bad OS, although I still prefer Windows 7.

Thank you.
(Updated my specs too).

And I agree, Vista isn't bad, but it did improve quite a bit.
