No, it does not do an identical job. There's a lot more to Diskeeper than people realize without reading the piles of documented PDFs and such. I like to break things down to a fundamental level; makes it easier to sort through everything. But no, Windows Defrag is ok to defrag most of the files, but you should also place your files using a certain algorithm such as Last Access or Modification Date. Not all defragmenters do file placement either. Wait until I'm finished with my tests.

I've just installed it on XP and thought it was ok, but nothing special. It's doesn't work on-the-fly and there are no real options.

I think the MS built in defragger will do an identical job; it just doesn't look as pretty.

Yeah, that was when I first setup my blog and wanted my pic there but that's months old and I had a friend make that image for me. I've wanted to change it for quite a while now. :P

Nope, I do an hour here and there when I can. I've been doing it for the last week. I should have the whole comparison finished sometime this week. I'll have it posted on my blog and many forums, including NeoWin.

AusLogics is freeware, but it lacks a lot. I've tested it along with 19 other defragmenters and it is hardly a competitor.

The 5 best I've tested are:

O&O Defrag Pro

There are a lot of defraggers that are pretty much the same and even worse than Windows Defrag. The worst one of all is MindSoft Defrag.

Hello Jeremy, could you please give us your blog's url Btw, downloading Diskeeper right now!

### EDIT: Diskeeper looks goodindeed but... it's very very very sloooowww.....
### EDIT: O&O looks FAST, good...
### EDIT: start: defragmentation 31,5%... after 2hrs ... defragmentation 34,5%.. WTF??????

Doesn't use the layout.ini as far as I know so, cause of superfetch, I wouldn't use it with Vista or even XP.

If it does use layout.ini then... fair enough.... but (presumably) you might run it then run the Vista defrag for a quicker overall defrag (-+).

So, don't be too quick to pick a defrag program. But on the other hand, hard drives STILL have to get a lot faster - still seeing new drives with max transfers of 40 mb/s when filling ... this is 2007!
