Windows 7: Piriform's Defraggler says one thing, Windows Defrag says another?

15 Oct 2011   #11

Windows 7 64

I tried a couple defragmenters. Defraggler and others reported different numbers. Actually I could do advaced defrags and they would always tell me that I could defrag and get better performance after the thorough defrag. And it seemed like my disk always had activity. I believe I read somewhere that the Diskkeeper model is what windows uses. I can run a full defrag, let it complete, and run it again with the second run completing in under a minute. Indicates to me that the scan engine is consistant.

Windows Disk Defrag Doesn't Defrag
Disk defrag stops analyzing at 62% and doesn't go any further. So I downloaded Defraggler and ran it. It worked but it wouldn't defrag down to 0% fragmentation, It still shows 4% after defrag.

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...
