I recently downloaded ashampoo defrag utility. I ran it for the first time and then ran windows defrag just out of curiosity to see if windows and ashampoo picked up different things. The windows defrag seemed to show the disk having a lot more fragmented files than usual after the ashampoo utility had run. Any reson for this? is it better to use one or the other or both?
I've just reinstalled Ashampoo Winoptimizer 2007, as I found the tools included within the program work very well. I was finding that Xp was saying that defragmentation was ok and nothing needed doing, then a scan for disc health or a full health check at PC Pitstop click here was saying to run a defrag asap. I've tried a few defrag utilities and they all say different things, I suppose its what your happy with. Another one to try is Smart defrag from IOBit click here this is quite good, but I prefer Ashampoo.
I have some times wondered about these utilities, being as useful/or more beneficial as purported. Take defragmentation as an example. We know what is supposed to happen- a compacting routine Windoze has it built in. What can the others do that the operating system cannot? I suspect some of this stuff is nothing more than a pretty 'Front End' and no more
