Yeah, that's what I thought too and that and the speed of it was why I was impressed.

This article on Windows 7 Defragmenting doesn't really answer the question about moving boot files per-se but it does speak of moving NTFS metadata files (as well as lots of other improvements).

You are correct, this is why it takes longer than a 3rd party defragger. As for Paragon Hard Disk Manager. I have purchased their software for five years. It is very diversified and can perform complex HDD tasks. However, it's not for a novice user.

If you want a fast defragger rather than the one that comes with W7, I recommend Smart Defrag at www.piriform.com .

Smart Defrag and Auslogic Defrag run a close race. They are the two leading free defraggers on the Internet. I have used them both on all Windows OSes.

You'll be happy with either one. Auslogic can defrag a seperate folder, Smart Defrag will defrag while the system is idle. I have tested both on XP, Vista and 7 32 and 64 bit (all systems).

If you get an SSD, then you do not have to worry about Defrag. LOL

is the title of the thread a little misleading?

too much exposure to tabloid media perhaps?

This thread is really old. Like 1 year+

I've used AusLogics and it seems to work just fine. I'm not a big proponent of defragging. I think it amounts to little performance benefit, but wear and tear on the drive mainly.
