Windows 7: the best defragment program?

The "to defragment or not to defragment" question has already been answered by Microsoft on Windows 7 and Vista. It's really an "aha" moment when many people find out that on Windows 7, the defragmentation is set take place once a week, by default.

To make that clear, "by default"

What if your computer was never on at 1am on Wednesday? Does it adjust for this when it misses the schedule all of the time.

It does not seem to. I know when I checked my brothers PC his drive looked like a murder had taken place, and he complained about slow file access and the like.

So I put Auslogic on his PC and he's been happy ever since, or as happy as one can be with such a mundane task taken care of

With people trying different defraggers it may be a good idea to point this out. It names some you shouldn't use.

I would like to point out that the Ultra Defragger on that list, is not the same as the Ultimate Defrag that I mentioned earlier.

you mean this one.

UltraDefrag - An Open Source Defragmenter

I don't know of any open source programs that ask for money.
Always nice when some idiot virus writer gets hold of or uses the same name for the junk they peddle.

No, that appears to be the one listed in the Symantec article. I'm referring to this one:

Disktrix - Two Amazing Defragmentation Software Titles - UltimateDefrag And DefragExpress

EDIT: As far as junk goes, I agree with you regarding Symantec.

No, that's a real defrager. If Source Forge had people hocking malware that would be the end of that site.

I read up on Disktrix program on Wilder, very buggy and the update log seems to support this.

I have Disktrix for 29 and I have 2 ssd'd that don't need defragged of course but I can configure it for my mechanical drives and it improves it for them as far as 3 points on the wei scale it depends on how it's configured and what benefits you want. You can't do that with any other defragmenter that I have found. Anyhow I don't write to often to my ssd's but all writing is done to the mechanical drives, just the operating system sets on the ssd..

I have done more than read about it, I have used it quite a bit when I ran WS2K8, and there was nothing buggy about it. The main reason that I bought it was because the other mainstream defraggers were extremely expensive for servers, Ultimate Defrag was not, because it ran the same on all Windows versions.

Should I defragment my (18% fragmented) SSD?
Disk Defragmenter is reporting my 60GB SSD is 18% fragmented. I have never defragmented the SSD as the general consensus seems to be that it's unnecessary on SSDs and if anything, it shortens the life of them. Should I defragment it?
