Improvements are:

Improved directory defrag algorithm
Improved AutoDefrag function
Fixed report bugs in background
Fixed general bugs


Diskeeper is fine, but you have to obtain the paid for version to have background defragging.

good morning sunny staines
Is it just me or does anyone else find that since the introduction of the beta version the minimise function does not work resulting in information disappearing off the bottom of the user interface?
Version 2.0 was Ok but 3.0 beta was affected and they do not seem to have cured it with 3.1 beta.

not used that function, beta 2 was bad news on my machine, but beta 3 and 3.1 woks OK.

Good morning to you both, I know that you both use WinAso. I use the defrag option in that and have no problems.In fact I am beginning to wonder if most defrag programs are at all nessessary.

Good morning rawprawn
I think we overuse defrag programs just as we probably over use optimization programs.
I do not believe that there is a real need for a program which constantly defrags in the background and I do not use that part of the 10bit facility.
However I do have to say that last week I defragged a neighbours machine which had never been defragged since purchase 18 months ago - he was astounded at the difference in the speed at which applications booted up - so there is a need for it to be used in moderation.

I have just had a problem with an update to new version of AdAware, think I'll wait and see if there are any hiccups or problems with this update before I download it,.

cocteau48, I agree I defrag on a monthly basis. However there are guidelines that suggest defrag is not necessary for NTFS, but they all conclude that even if it's not necessary it does no harm. I shall continue my current regime.
