Windows 7: Is there a difference between defragging programs?

08 Nov 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit
Is there a difference between defragging programs?

Hi, I was just wondering if there is a difference between disk defrag programs? Is there anyone that isnt as good as the other?
I would like to know between Iobit smart defrag, Tuneup Utilities 2009 defrag, diskeeper and auslogic disk defrag.
Which one is better or doesnt it make a difference?

I use Auslogics defrag:

Disk Defrag - Reclaim the Speed Of Your Disks

It works fine with Windows 7 and is fast! (and free).
