O&O Defrag or Diskeeper?

Hey I need your suggestions on which Third-party Defragger tool can do an automatic defragmentation and really working good from the two choices?

Which would you recommend?
O&O Defrag or Diskeeper?

Open on other Third-Party Defragger as well.

Does Auslogic's Disk Defrag could be run automatically whenever it detected a fragmented drive?

Thanks for the quick reply.

I use PerfectDisk from Raxco PerfectDisk | Best Disk Defrag Software I defragments the drive when the computer is idle, a feature Raxco calls "Stealth-Patrol". You may have a look at that.

Why not just use the built-in defragger, and adjust its schedule to fit your usage patterns? It's been a long time since a third-party defragger was needed.

If you willing to pay for a 3rd Party Defragmenter for the extra features,
I too would highly recommend Perfect Disc.

Its also MS certified

I've used O&O Defrag for quite some time, I don't have any performance statistics to support it over the others, but it works well for me.

If you chose a defragmentation utility already , would you mind sharing which one you chose?

I Love O&O Defrags Performance!-
- It's Boot defrag Every-time (5sec), shrunk my MFT from 4 Blocks to 1 (Diskeeper Automatically expands the MFT on All your HD's to HUGE, and No way to shrink them without a Full Reformat! ).
- My System is sooo much faster now, and rarely needs a defrag (Hint!-Show Hidden System Files..., that can't be defraged normally! (i.e. Index.dat...)).
- It's less expensive, and I got a good deal @ ... (Key does un-lock Trial, and allows Context Defrag).
- Give their Fully-Functional Trial a try, and Only install the Latest version downloaded from O&O website.

Windows 7 defrag vs Diskeeper
I have been a user of diskeeper for some time, on XP and on Windows 7 since I installed build 7100 RC. Just found out today that win 7 has a built in defrag that is running also. Does it make sense to run both? Any one experience a reason that one is better than the other?

Windows Disk Defrag Doesn't Defrag
Disk defrag stops analyzing at 62% and doesn't go any further. So I downloaded Defraggler and ran it. It worked but it wouldn't defrag down to 0% fragmentation, It still shows 4% after defrag.

Does Windows Defrag defrag system files?
Hi all. Stupid question here... A friend of mine was speaking highly about this PerfectDisk prog because "it defrags system files." I was kind of surprised because I thought (assumed) that the defrag utility built into Windows 7 already defragged system files. Is this not true? I do not...
