just tried it on my Vista desktop machine. If in fact it is actually defragging, its one of the fastest defraggers I've used. I tried Jkdefrag on this drive before and it took forever until I finally gave up. This program was done in 5 mins

By default JKDefrag doesn't just defrag, it also re-organizes your hard drive in a more logical order. So directories go at the beginning of the hard drive, normal sized files & often used files go next, and at the end of the used space go big files & least used files. If you just want defrag without organizing, then you have to tell JK that.

Its not a very bad Defager. I downloaded it and tried it on my laptop. At first it seems to be going pretty slow. Thats because it was mainly defragging my sandboxes (from Sandoxie) which can accumulate to 1000's of file even if only accumulating to 100 megs. So I deleted my 3 sandboxes (Trillian, Opera, and Default) and ran the defrag again. This time it was done in about 2 mins. saying I was 2.5% fragmented. Taking the Majority of its time in the system restore directory. I've Tried Jkdefrag and this one does seem faster. Though to be fair the first time this computer was defragged I used jkdefrag so that might have been why that one took longer.

I know people who sit and watch the defragger work. So yes, any time saved in the actual file access is spent 100x over by just sitting and watching the thing run.

It makes my head hurt.

That's some pretty wild claims. While defragging does provide measurable improvements in system performance and is beneficial overall (I would never argue against that), I wouldn't go as far as saying it "increases your productivity".

And if you're working with files that are so large that fragmentation is an issue, you're still gonna wait for them to open--fragmented or not. "No more waiting" != shave off a couple of milliseconds.
