I have been using Diskeeper Pro for some years now to automatically in the background to defrag my hard discs. It has always worked well wihout any interaction on my part. My version of Diskeeper is not the latest version and I have been wondering as to update it, but there have been comments that the defrag contained within Windows 7 negates the need for something like Diskeeper. Anyone care to comment?
The in-built is ok but definitely not as good as diskeeper 2011. The problem i've always had with the in-built is that it is way too slow and does not always make much difference. In fact it is a very 'lite' version of diskeeper! One of the best things about diskeeper now is that it prevents most fragmentation from occurring in the first place. This actually makes it much better than just a defragger and it further prolongs the life of your hard-drive.
Another thought - In the early days when your PC was slowing down there were two things to do, - find and remove old/tmp etc files and defrag the PC. Inevitably the PC did perform a lot more quickly after that.
