C: Defragmentation

  babybell 16:58 25 Mar 2007

I purchased Diskeeper for my Defragmentation requirements as I was told it was much more reliable than using the built-in XP defrag. It has served me well but recently when ever i analyse my C: I get the following message "This volume is heavily fragmented, with 54% of the total volume space available for defragmentation" I run the defragmentor and it takes about 20 mins to finsh and it says my C: is now fine. But a day or two later i get the same message again, is this right? I do not use my pc for much, just some internet browsing and updating my website.

Hi, no, that does not sound right. I am not familiar with Diskeeper, but I have read other threads where it does appear to give problems, some even cursing it. I use iObit SmartDefrag, it is great, runs quietly in the background keeping my drives (80Gb and 320Gb) running fully defragged at all times. It is free at click here I know also that plenty of other forum members use it too.

Have you not used 'Set it and Forget it' in Diskeeper? This should prevent the defragmentation building up.

Thanx Technotiger, I have installed iObit SmartDefrag and must say my pc is running at lighten speed at the moment, especailly noticeable when opening up bulky folders containing lots of files. Thanx for the tip.
