Windows 7: Is there a defragmenter that will do the entire volume at boot?

Is there a defragmenter that will do the entire volume at boot?

Other than Ultradefrag, of course, which has no full support for 64 bit. It also doesn't seem to do a good job on my disk.

Like the title, I want one that will defragment the whole volume on boot, not just the paging files for example.

I don't care if it is free, commercial, or shareware. I just want one.

Thanks.

Edit: Nevermind, apparently Ultradefrag has the full featured one for 64 bit now.

Hello Kisazeky,

UltraDefrag is a good free program that will allow you to.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Puran Defrag will also do a full boot time defrag including the Master File Table, Registry, and Pagefile.

hi Gaz,

This depends upon how you use the computer.
As a developer, i do not turn on auto defrag. But , if you are a multimedia person you would like that option to be enabled because large chunks of file create clusters here and there and they slow the read write speed of your hard drive.

The auto defrag feature has worked without any problems whatsoever for me. It does make things simpler. But you can turn it off if you want.

Extend Boot Volume
In "Windows 7 In Depth", discussing Disk Management (page 718), the authors say: Is this true? If so, it seems rather an oversight. Has anyone tried it? The book might be referring to Dynamic Disks, or Basic Disks, or both, I cannot tell.
