It's better than the one in XP and Vista.

Works fine for me.

Get a third partly one. It practically always says your file are not fragmented, yet a third party ones say otherwise.

Been using it for years

Really?

It always does like 5 or 6 passes or something to clean things up. Seems to be a lot more useful than the previous versions.

I'll compare to some freebie 3'rd party items over the weekend maybe.

I put Auslogics defrag on the laptop with Vista but the Windows 7 one seems fine to me so I'll just use it.

I bet Sean_W uses 3rd party Solitaire apps on his Windows machine...

Inbuilt one is good enough for gamers, other than that Auslogics is very nice vim.

haha. My wife likes the Windows ones, in fact they're very nice. The Windows solitaire card games in Vista inspired me to make KDE games card decks better, to tell you the truth.

well I hate to be a killjoy but from what I've read, even from this forum in fact, that you don't really need to degrag a NTFS system like you did a FAT32 system.

What do you guys think? Are you seeing even the slightest performance increase? To be honest I highly doubt it.

Which one is right?

NTFS is far better than FAT32, but its not perfect. Windows still splits files to fit wherever it can, so there are still fragmentation issues. The reason you don't notice fragmentation as much as you would have 10 years ago is due largely better hard drive technology.

diskkeeper?

Some of the known programs are Auslogics', Defraggler and Diskeeper. Diskeeper's payable while the other 2 are free. Auslogics released a new version lately w/ an optimization option. Really up to your own taste if you ask me but all around great programs.

For pay programs, you can't beat PerfectDisk.

For free. I use Auslogics. But this Piriform looks pretty good

with Auslogics does the "optimization" really work?

do you guys use Auslogics BoostSpeed?

Yeah, ive tried diskeeper before, it used to be good but now they have this service running in the background that eats up resources, and disabling it in diskeeper still causes performance issues, had to uninstall it because I couldnt play games with it installed, even with that service disabled.

Oh, and I just installed Auslogics defragger, seems to work great, not sure what effect the optimization has exactly though, but at least it doesnt feel the need to have services running in the background eating cycles.
