i think you would have to stop buying MOST products in the world if you based your purchases on the peoples values/religion that own/run/work at the company


I'm an agnostic-leaning-atheist; however, I'm far from a militant.

I've also read quite a bit of L. Ron Hubbard (not just "Battlefield Earth", his seminal SF work; but also the entire ten volume magnum opus "The Invaders Plan", though I've had to haunt used book shops and libraries to find volumes I hadn't purchased or read - and that was AFTER I got the Scientology connection).

I have as much (or little) opinion about Scientology as I do other religions (except for the Roman Catholic Church, for which I have mostly scorn - however, that scorn is based entirely on indisputable PUBLIC RECORD, not conspiracy theories); however, as much as I WANT to trust scientific theory, there is still way too much that science is unable to explain to make me completely comfortable.

Militancy - in anything - all too often leads to major cases of foot-in-mouth disease.

Defraggler or UltraDefrag. Both work great on Win8.

This is what I thought as well but never looked into it that much. It seems the built in option has been improved quite a bit over it's Windows 7 counterpart. I also don't see a reason to use something else, I use the built in defragger in Win7 as well.


I posted about Disk Optimizer back in the Microsoft Beta forum (specifically about the Consumer Preview) as part of my top ten new or improved features for Windows 7 users.

The fact that it mooted Diskeeper Pro Premier (both Disk Optimizer/Defragmenter and Diskeeper have come from the same company since Windows NT) was decidedly something from WAY out in Wrong Field™ precisely *because* of that seemingly designed-in upgrade path that's been around since - as I said before - Windows NT.

Point is that the built in one is actually better and more advanced than those

How is a screenshot of anything proof of being advanced ? options and switches are not "advanced" it's fluff.
Have you even read the thread ? the disk optimizer in Win8 is and improved version of what is arguably the best defragmenter on the market.


Screenshots.... :no:

Auslogic Disk Defrag works like a charm and very effective.

what exactly am I supposed to prove ?

Can you please explain to me how a screenshot shows how advanced a defrag algorithm is ?

As for how it's better, as I said, it's already described earlier in in this thread. and again, it's an improved version of what is already considered the best industry defrag tool.

Well you're the expert on windows 8 and I need more convincing it's the best OS ever... so, proceed.....

The only good thing about the included defragmenter is the SSD Optimizer. Yes it does multipass on HDDs but it still (Over Time) doesn't defrag all files and it doesn't completely consolidate free space over time. And the built in defragger doesn't defrag the system files or Hibernation file or the System restore files. If you want to resize a partition, you need to defrag and consolidate free space completely; otherwise you may have trouble choosing the size you want. Anyway, Unfortunately PerfectDisk (My Favorite) is not yet ready for Windows 8. But once it is windows 8 compatible I will be sure to use it. So until then you can use Defraggler. BTW, I'm a defragging geek and I will tell you that I very much dislike diskeeper(All versions).

So read the previous post.

and I'm still waiting on you to explain how a screenshot shows a better defrag and optimization algorithm. Especially since all the free defraggers only does defrag.
