Hi Romulin

You should never use 2 different defrag utilities constantly. Due to the differing algorythms used by the products, one will inevitably undo what the other has done and do things it's own way. If you're simply trying to decide which one to use, that's Ok for awhile but if it's done too much you basically are doing allot of unnecessary file movement.

Thread reply:

I started delving into the innards of fragmentation and defreggers a few years ago, and I must say I learned allot of things I wasn't aware of, and also allot of useless hype. I like how the MS guys are approaching this issue.

What really got me laughing tho was reading the comments section! Wow...uhhh "Hi n00bs"! Lot's of idiotic replies with a few smart folks thrown in, but it was good to see the MS guys get right in and answer them anyway (even tho the n00bs still came back and tried to refute the MS guys...LOL)

Amazing what people can come up with to sell the masses eh. Make up an important sounding tool & sell em things they don't even know they needed (and didn't).
Now we just have Service Tweaks, Registry Cleaners, needless TCP\IP patches and some others to squash.

Windows 7 x64

Nope, unfortunately PerfectDisk 10 has my attention! With its support for Windows 7 it makes perfect sense to continue my use ;-)
