Windows 7: Should I defrag manually or not

Will defrag programs, other then the windows standard, remove the restore points?

I seem to recall this issue and recently defraged with Auslogics, the restore points were gone.

I use Auslogics and normally defrag daily just to see my red(fragmented) files turn blue(defragged).

After a fiasco with a hard drive 10 days ago, I stopped and a few days later, all but one restore points were gone. Cause unknown.

I updated Auslogics yesterday and defragged with no loss of restore points.

Thanks for the reply,

Based On your experience I gave Auslogics another try and my restore points remain.

Obviously it was not Auslogics and like you I have to say the loss of them the other day was "Cause Unknown".

Being one who makes a lot of mistakes I rely heavily on my backups and restore points. Thanks again for giving me the courage to try the program again.

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...
