Window's built-in Defragger has improved tremendously over the years..
It does a very well job.

However.. the downside is it's not automated.
It only defrags when you either manually defrag or set a scheduled time to do it..
Either way.. you have to set aside time to let your PC run.

My solutions is "Diskeeper" .
I absolutely love it.
It runs in the background with minimal resource.
It will stop running if you are running resource-intensive programs.
I can feel the performance upgrade with Diskeeper.

The best part is "Diskeeper" is completely sanctioned/certified by Microsoft.
In fact, Diskeeper utilizes Windows' own Defragger..
So it is absolutely safe.
It replaces the Built-in Defrag in Windows.
When you press Defrag in Windows.. it will launch Diskeeper :)

The "Automatic Defragger" option means you'll never have to worry about Defrag issues or spending hours upon hours Defragging your Drives.

Unlike other "after-market" Defrag Programs out there ...
That put files & folders in places that is not recognized by Windows thus causing errors and even decreases the performance.

Windows 7 Professional X64 Build 7600.16385 (win7_rtm.090713-1255)

I am going to agree with the first reply to the query. I use Raxco's PerfectDisk 10 exclusively.

It is the absolute finest defrag program available... period. Yes, you have to pay for it, but it does the job far better and faster than any other program I've used.

I've been using this program for over 6 years and it has never failed me yet.

Windows 7 x64 bit

how long do these apps generally take to defrag a 1tb or 1.5tb hd? I tried using Tune Up Utilities and it took forever.

Puran Defrag is a defragmenter that deserves more attention than it's getting. Does a wonderful job on my 7 64.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (Retail)

I have been liking O&O. I prefer it to Perfect Disk. PD slowed my system down noticeably when it was degragging in the background. Never see that with O&O on autopilot. It is very inconspicuous but it keeps the disks nicely defragged and optimized.

Auslogics free disk defragmenter does a great job and can be scheduled.

Windows Disk Defrag- Defrag Larger than 64mb?
-Windows Disk Defrag doesn't defrag files larger than 64mb, and performance decreased over time (as well as my VelociRaptor HDD getting Very Noisy!)! - I do like that WDD makes several passes to defrag/consolidate (Manual only, as my buggy ESS AV didn't like auto-defrag!)! I have tried several...

I normally set the Disk Defragmenter Task Schedule to DISABLED, and leave the Windows Disk Defragmenter defragsvc set to DISABLED. Will Puran Free be able to safely and fully operate under these conditions, or should I change defragsvc to MANUAL. I occasionally create a Macrium FULL image...
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...
