Windows 7: Which Defrag programs?

It should just procede. The nice thing is it's a quick optimization. Usually only takes around 5 minutes, if that.

I happen to use JKDefrag or Defraggler.

They are both great...

@Pichu glad it worked for you and thanks for the rep.
edit: btw I hope you don't mind I ripped off part of your
sig. You put it succinctly.
Yes i have to right click on the shortcut & run as Admin.
If i dont the command window just appears for a split second and boot defrag does not start

Just asking not a rant!
If you analyze other people's HDD, you'll notice that they can actually benifit an average of 3-10 seconds optimization from defragging, depending on the seriousness of the number of fragments.

Thanks! I left it running, ate dinner, then when I came back, it was done!

I'm considering deleting MyDefrag now and going back to Windows Defragmenter.

I don't want to start any defrag wars, but if you like MyDefrag you might like Puran. If you enable all the options, it's pretty close to MyDefrag "daily optimize" script. If you disable the options, it's pretty close to Auslogics quicky defrag. Those were the 2 I was using before somebody tipped me Puran went free for personal use. I've only been using it a couple of weeks, but I like it so far. And it doesn't stop me from doing the '-b' trick with the command line defrag.exe.

Fragmentation prevention FTW!
Yeah, this is the only defragger that prevents most fragmentation before it occurs.
+ 1 for Diskeeper. I have had it for ages now and its awesome!

Been using smart defrag for ages now. It's a neat lightweight little app that also does a few other minor jobs and best of all it's free.

It also runs in the background but only defrags when the computer has been inactive for x amount of time(set your own).

I've used many of the programs on this page, Im currently using TUneUp to help speed up my computer its all going well. Im finding Im having much graphic lag its quite annoying after updating my drivers that helped so if you see if theres any new drivers for your computer that might somewhat help you speed up your PC.

If your still looking for defrag programs I found this webpage (From when I replied to another thread) check it out it could be of some assistence Defrag Software Reviews - Top Defrag Programs 2010

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.
