Defrag Programmes

Does anyone have any views on which is the best.

I have just downloaded O&O as per the review in the latest edition of PCA and it seems ok.

Which others are there out ther to try that might be better.

All suggestions will be much appreciated.

I also use Diskeeper with no problems.

I used to use Diskeeper, but I found that it seem to be taking longer & longer to defrag my drives, so I switched to O & O and find this much quicker, and more to the point, less resource hungry.

I think that it's different defrag methods offer a good choice between efficiency & speed, and I can safely defrag my shared data drive without impacting unduly on performance.

I dsid the same evaluation some months ago, and ultimately settled on Raxco Perfect Disk. It is British, works probably better than Diskeeper, and is more than capable of doing a defrag whilst you carry on working.
It also has the ability to defrag the MBR & Pagefile

The best and fastest

Thanks all very much for your comments. Very interesting. Two for Perfect Disk, two for Diskeeper and one who has moved from Diskeeper to O&O.

So I am now off to evaluate!!

Why, when there is "one" built-in?

(without the obvious slagging of all 'built-in' stuff please ;-))

The built-in one is perfectly OK. Defragging is a highly overrated activity IMO, in any case.

The built in Defrag program is slow and cannot defrag whilst there is any disk activity, therefore is totally unsuitable for a file server
