Windows Defrag:

- does the job

- no need for installation

- no need for configuration

- no need for even knowing it exists

- no buying, trialing, account creating, updating

That's my favorite type of utility. :D

Got to chime in here, (again?).

I have used Perfectdisk since version 9 and have seen VAST improvement all the way up to version 12.5 now. It even prevents fragmentation before it happens and runs stealth defrag so if one of your drives is dormant for up to 15 minutes it starts defragging it. Then of course once disk action begins again it pauses.

It's a 9/10 for me.

Cheers,

Disk Defragmentation ? Background and Engineering the Windows 7 Improvements

" Among the other changes under the hood in Windows 7 are the following:

Defragmentation in Windows 7 is more comprehensive ? many files that could not be re-located in Windows Vista or earlier versions can now be optimally re-placed. In particular, a lot of work was done to make various NTFS metadata files movable. This ability to relocate NTFS metadata files also benefits volume shrink, since it enables the system to pack all files and file system metadata more closely and free up space ?at the end? which can be reclaimed if required.

If solid-state media is detected, Windows disables defragmentation on that disk. The physical nature of solid-state media is such that defragmentation is not needed and in fact, could decrease overall media lifetime in certain cases.

By default, defragmentation is disabled on Windows Server 2008 R2 (the Windows 7 server release). Given the variability of server workloads, defragmentation should be enabled and scheduled only by an administrator who understands those workloads.

Best practices for using defragmentation in Windows 7 are simple ? you do not need to do anything! Defragmentation is scheduled to automatically run periodically and in the background with minimal impact to foreground activity. This ensures that data on your hard disk drives is efficiently placed so the system can provide optimal responsiveness and I can continue to enjoy glitch free listening to the Eagles :-). "

Auslogics Disk Defrag I think is the best. Re-orders system files to the start of the hard disk too and you can choose to move files around for better performance.

Defraggler, hands down. Simple updates, reliable and faster than the Windows 7 built-in defragmentation.

There is no reason to use a third party program, Windows 7 does it in the background and you never have to even know about it.

IIRC if you use a third party deffrager it f's up page file and indexed files as well, the same with superfetch and "fetched" or "saved" temporary files to load programs faster.. stick with the default win7 as pointed above

PerfectDisk for my server.

On my desktop I occasionally run Defraggler over the storage disk, but don't do regular defrags because the disk rarely changes and my main disk is an SSD.

Been using PerfectDisk for several years and by far, it's the best app!

I'm still using Disk Defragmenter, but I've heard a lot of good things about Defraggler.
