Windows 7: Windows 7 built in defrag

Geneo good choice. I started this trend a long time ago just to try to get information from other members and test some programs. As far as I know no one new anything about W7 defrag. I never intended it to be program A against B. I and many others have tried many programs and post back their thoughts. Billy and his boys won't let up with any information so we pittle. One shouldn't defrag over and over again just to test because it will eat your hard drive, so it takes a while to get input from members. I still use W7 built in but over a period of time try others. I have found out that Diskeeper has made the windows 7 built in defragger; (as per ENEWS). Was it built as per Billy and his boys or how Diskeeper wanted to; I don't know. With testing by many members over a period of time we just find out the baddest dog in the pound. Then what happened?? SSD. We can test programs without a battle. It's just a learning thing. My next system will have a Intel 510 SSD and I won't worry about it. I will still test on a HDD just for Bits and Grins and will post back on my thoughts.

I believe a previous version of windows defragger was based on Diskeeper. I don;t know if that is the case for Windows 7 though - I expect not.

Just might be using Diskeeper again.

Bought it (diskeeper 2010), switched back to windows 7. Too much disk activity.

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...
