Both work really well.
That looks like a nicer program than Auslogics program gonna have to try that one out all because it has the analyzer.

Thoroughly agree with you. It's amazing that apps like Diskeeper and O&O Defrag have been making the defragmentation process both faster and more able to optimise the placement of system files across the disk/partition for a number of years now, but MS haven't been able to get their sluggish piece of junk inbuilt Disk Defragmenter to work anywhere near as good. Maybe we should get Bill to appropriate O&O Software - then you might see improvements.

I can also recommend UltimateDefrag - The Defragger For Power Users - Home, it has a unique interface design and features that you wont find on a lot of other programs.

I just let the Windows 7 defragger work in the background and my disks are never fragmented.

You *do* realize that M$ defrag is simply licensed technology from the very same DisKeeper company?

Yeah - since it is set on its own schedule already, I let it do its thing.

I have to add Iobit's Smart Defrag to the list of excellent defragmenting programs.

I've been using it since it was just a little beta and it's never let me down yet - in fact, I've done some extensive testing, and it does for free what Diskeeper and Raxco PerfectDisk do for money!

It's lightweight, uses little resources and can do almost everything the 'big boys' can do (with the exception of MFT defragging and registry defragging - which Iobit's Advanced SystemCare *does* do)

Just a little FYI for those that aren't liking the default 7 defrag...
