Windows 7: the best defragment program?

06 Mar 2011   #21

W7x64 Pro, SuSe 12.1/** W7 x64 Pro, XP MCE
 
 

Like I said, it is a subjective decision. Mine is probably influenced by the fact that I'm running old hardware that I feel needs all of the help that it can get, and also by old habits formed by archaic logic. Whatever the case may be, since the program is paid for, I will continue using it.

To defrag or not to defrag, to stick with Windows native defragger or look elsewhere for a free defragger or buy a defragger is all in the domain of an individual's preferences and perceptions.

How many of us have the ultrafast SSD drives? Until such time these drives come out in as large capacities as the other kind of Winchester drives and become affordable, many people will continue to use the platter drives.

Given this scenario, I do feel defraggers is a necessity and cannot be wished away.

That Windows 7 does not require a defragger is far-fetched. If it were so, why should MS embark upon providing a much improved Defragger in Windows 7?

Disk Defragmentation

I had always gone with Raxco's Perfect Disk for a longtime now and Perfect Disk 11 is what runs on all my machines. I defrag atleast once a week that apart the stealthpatrol mode in which it runs. I care not to quantify whether it has increased my PC's performance and whether it is in microseconds, nanoseconds or picoseconds. If I believe that it does good and am happy with it, that is it.

I have file servers in my corporate environment running Windows Server 2003 that haven't been defragged in 4+ years. Performance doesn't seem to have suffered whatsoever, no complaints and files are copying as fast as the network cards will allow. And I have a file server in my home that has never been defragged. Just offering as evidence that defragging might not be absolutely necessary either.

I like diskeeper as it defragments in the background as I work, meaning I never have to set aside time to run a manual defrag job.

Interesting.....

Welcome to the Forums Bill R TechSpec

Having Fragmented Files Does not slow the system down in some cases, I have a 10 year old machine running XP Pro that has never been Defraged and the only lag i experience is from the graphics card being out dated (x1050).......


I'm interested......

If you are sure you have never defragged your XP machine in 10 years, could you possibly analyze your HD for fragmentation & post the results?

Windows 7 defrag works for me. If you use restore points, make sure you use a defragmenter that is VSS aware if your disk block size is less than 16Kb (Windows 7, Diskkeeper, NOT defraggler).
