Windows 7: Windows Disk Defrag- Defrag Larger than 64mb?

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 free/paid 3d party defrags, and didn't like them (Currently using Defraggler)!

Is there a way to make WDD defrag all size files...?

Win7 seems to accept w switch, not sure if it accomplishes anything.

I'll give this a try!?

BTW- No matter what defragmenter you use!- Make sure to Right click (On the CMD prompt too) , and Run as Admin!

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.
