CCleaner was developed by Neowin member BigDog, don't know if he's still involved.

"Piriform", the website name means "pear-shaped" which is a British metaphor meaning "it's all gone wrong".

My first thought is this program is a front-end to sysinternals app. But then I saw this on their FAQ page:

Q. Does WinContig use Contig by SysInternals to perform the analysis/defragmentation process?
A. Absolutely no. WinContig is not a GUI for Sysinternals Contig, nor Contig is embedded within WinContig. The defragmentation and analysis engine of WinContig is based on the API of the operating system.

Thanks for mentioning this defragger. This is the first time I've heard about it. I'll give it a try.

PerfectDisk isn't bad. I've tried Auslogics but it didn't do anything outstanding outside of the basic (some people like this). Diskkeeper's interface is way too busy for my taste. OO defrag and voptxp are okay defraggers. So after trying out all these different defraggers, I still haven't found the right one yet. Probably never will. But PerfectDisk comes darn close.

Why does everyone think all of these defrag newcomers are good? Just get PerfectDisk or something very well established and well-reviewed at least. Paying some money for good defragmentation software is worth it.

You still pay for Defraggler if you want (via donation). I like this system much better than shareware/adware/blahware. There are some really good software based on donation model. You're not restricted to 30-days or forced to see a nag screen. If you like the software, you donate. If you don't, you don't. Simple as that.

Wow...just thought I'd give this a try as I've been looking for a nice replacement to the default Defrag. Imagine my surprise when it decided to crash my system. :S No error window, no "Hey something's wrong!!", just black screen then restart. When I logged back on I got the "Serious crash blah blah" message. Nice.

Looking for an error dump to hopefully send to the developer. I was really attracted to the "Defrag individual files" feature - damn Guild Wars.

Besides defragmenting individuals files how well does this defrag compared with Auslogics Disk Defrag 1.3 which is an excellent tool? Is there really room for this?
