Talking about defragging is about as productive as talking about swap file sizes and locations, "how much RAM do I need", or AMD/Intel or Apple/PC.

Lots of opinions, lots of allegations, lots of heat, and little light or unequivocal documenation--and few if any minds changed. All of it wrapped in a nice obsessive/compulsive package and signifying next to nothing.

ignatzatsonic; I would tend to disagree.

Some people want to know if 7's defrag is as good as any freeware, if diskeeper is actually a step up. Or are the paid apps like O&O worth the green they hype themselves up to be. I don't see any 'heat' in the discussions. In a sence that might be SSDD but everyone has their favorite burn software too.

Tried many a defragmenter but found no match for Diskeeper EnterpriseServer 2010. Unfortunately, this is not a freeware.

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 :)
I always thought that the Windows built-in Defragger was a cut down version of Diskeeper anyway.

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...
