Paid for version of PerfectDisk is great but there also is a free version without some of the 'bells and whistles'............You can also defrag the system files on reboot by right clicking the drive when you have the software up.............

Why isn't UltraDefrag on the list? Its fast and accurate. Never mind they have a full portable version.

Why "[i]Windows Defrag"[/i] is winning? what's the reason? tested and compared with other defragmenters? or it's just because is "free" and included with Windows?

I used windows defrag and then ran defraggler and it showed windows defragged files but didnt move them, so the files where a checkered pattern on the drive. and these files where not in use at the time.

 

used defraggler and it moved all the files with the rest.

I used to use/and or try Diskeeper, Perfect disk, O &O defrag, iobit defrag, auslogics defrag and defraggler. The main problem is that each and every program has its own idea of what is the best way to organize your drive. Some just consulate and defrag. While others think least modified goes first and then most recent to prevent fragmentation. Others defrag on the fly. Personally defraggler is the best because it is free, and has a scheduler and a boot time defrag. I use now just the regular defrag in windows for windows 8 (3 machines) and regular for 1 windows 7 machine. If you still use XP, vista, or less then 20% free space...then you'll need defraggler but other then that Windows defrag works fine.

So far two defrags I use O & O Defrag and Ultimate Defrag (Disktrix)

 

But the second always gives me error in 64 windows 7 when I use boot time defrag

When they fix this this will be the best defrag for me.

Auslogics is pretty good for a free app. I used to swear by Diskeeper but I don't think it offers enough to justify spending

Because people are increasingly using SSDs and need only their extra drives defragged every so often.

 

I'm still in the MyDefrag camp otherwise, but don't need it anymore.

SSDs can become fragmented, just like any other data storage device, however seek time is no longer really a big issue (due to it being virtually zero, even from the start to the end of a partition or drive).

I voted other because I do not defrag. I have a SSD but that is not the reason I do not defrag. I just don't.
