    Hey,

    I am after a real kick ass disk defragger. I use to use O&O Defragger but it kicked me in the teeth with problems. I am not after freeware but the best!

    Recomendations appreciated. ;)

    I have tried both of these and say they are both the same... I would use either one of these on my system. I personally use Diskeeper 8 on my network mainly because I like the Admin prog for diskeeper which allows me to run all the systems from one central command counsel. But like I said, both perfectdisk and diskeeper are great products. :D

    i have now got the trial for now.and have to say i could not believe what i saw it defraged a 120g hdd in 15 minutes.(11gig on hdd)and after doing so the speed my rig now boots up were outstanding.

    still have 30 days of the trial and still quit a few things to install after reformatting hdd this could be one of the very few trials i will purchase.at this time i will recomend this utillity.

    Yeah Perfect disk is the one, especially the ability to offline ( before windows loads) defrag your MFT(ntfs) your system files & the pagefile if your using a fixed page file like me :)

    Perfectdisk's SmartPlacement defrag is the one...

    Run the online defrag using either SmartPlacement or defrag only as often as you can like at every 2-3 day. Use the offline defrag to defrag the NTFS MTF file and its metadatas, paging files, hibernate file.

    if you've partitioned the HDD(s) into several parts, you can run offline defrag on every non system parts. within/during Windows sessions at anytime.

    for boot/system/pagefile parts., i would manually sked the offline defrag to run on those parts. at boot-time like once at every week or every two weeks.

    I prefer Diskeeper with his best working boot defragment is fabulous ,whit this program i get the best
    boot performance ,compared whit other programs ,for normal defragment of the disk there is no much difference with other defragmenters, its just what u choose.
    For normal defragmenting Perfectdisk is a good choise too.
