Clean Install!

If the upgrade runs in the Vista environment, what would you expect? Defrag alone takes 4 hours with no progress inicator.

I'd say a clean install is a must!

MS defrag is a bit (yuky as hell) worthless as tits on a bore hog.
Defrag fast and It has never failed me in many yrs of testing.
"AUSLOGIOCS Defrag " FREE, fast and works.

Sorry Snuffy, but I beg to differ on this one... I tend to be a little anal about defraging and have found VOPT 9 to be the best of the breed... butt ugly front end, but oi vey does it fly... try it you'll like it

ps. Polly sends her regards..

To some extent, I don't trust fast defraggers, as it just feels like it's not working if it takes a short period of time.

Full Install

Using network storage at home has been the best solution for faster, cleaner full installs. By storing family photos, music, documents, Outlook data files, etc... to a drive that is accessible by all the computers in my home means that usually just the basic OS and applications are all that's needed... Well, and some configurations, of course. Also, using a domain with domain accounts makes for easy user and system management.

I am lazy by nature, so I always try to work smarter, not harder!!

I also use VOP 9. Great program.
I also use the DEFRAG in Win7 Manager
I also use Auslogic Defrag.
It depends on several things. and Yes, ea Defrager program does it differently.

Auslogic is what I use everyday. when on line anytime, it does not jam up the system. I also keep a running bootup and shutdown record.
when things get a little slow. I change defrag and use the next level.
VOP 9 has VS application mode. WOW running tests the size of the Backup is smaller when ran that way.

I test many different programs that are FREE - I also offer to my customer base, FREE to assist them... some FREE programs suk big time, some FREE programs are really GREAT>
