Other defrag software available

  Europa 10:51 14 Jan 2006

I am missing the defrag facility of my old PC.
I used to run WinMe on it and I use to like the graphic that was shown when the system was defragmenting (that grid like picture who was showing the continuous progress of the defragmenting session).
Now I have the Window XP defrag facility which looks like is slower than the defrag facility in WinMe, perhaps because the graphics do not show 'active' progress.
Is there a defrag software that I can download that will show the same graphics as my old PC?
Thank you.

Thanks SG Atlantis, I'll keep that website in mind for future references.
What I am looking for is something similar to the maintenance wizard in WinMe, where the defrag progress was shown with a grid where the squares were changing colours as the defragmentation was progressing.
Maybe what I am looking for died with the previous versions of windows, that's possible.

Thanks pj123, that reassures me to know that the defragmenter coming with XP is a lot slower than the one that came with WinMe.
For one moment I thought it was my system playing up.
I have downloaded Defrag2000 Lite and tried it. It is not as good and as fast as the WinMe one but I still prefer it to the one that comes with Window XP. At least you can see things moving.
Thank you PaulB2005.

A lot smaller actually. But still, on a brand new computer, there isn't that many files to deal with anyway.
