I have used this via System Works, although I defrag using Microsofts XP system this System Doctor says I am 15% fragmented. Restarting it makes no difference. Has anyone else found this , also Microsofts system works a lot faster.

The only reason I use norton speed disk over windows defragger is because it is easier to schedule it and leave it going over night.

I do the same as Thalmus. no much difference between the two

I beleieve it's because the two programmes use different algorithms to defrag. It's advisable to use one or the other, not both in tandem.
