Defraggler is the only defrag program I use, except when I run 'defrag c: -b' from the command line. I install it on all machines I come across and set up scheduled defrag jobs. Updates are detected by FileHippo's Update Checker (which I also install), which also detects updates to many other software packages that aren't made by Microsoft. I don't trust many of the other defrag programs out there, but this one don't worry me too much (although open source would make me feel a lot better).

Piriform makes real nice software, and updates keep coming --I love it. Highly recommended.

Ah yes. The slowest Defragger on earth.


Nope, that is probably more due to your usage of Defraggler. Note that if you choose to process an entire drive, then it will defrag AND OPTIMIZE it. The optimization is something you really only need to do very seldom.

That being said, the most important metric of software for defragmentation is not speed, but rather how well it defragments your hard drive and how well it will work after completing this process.

Defraggler is not in the same league as CCleaner. It takes 6 to 10 times longer than Windows Defragmenter. And talking bout 'how well it defragments your hard drive', before I let it start, I had a single 300MB file that was present as 2 fragments; after it finished, I had an assortment of files totaling 12 fragments. And there was no noticeable improvement in system performance.

Of course not. They are two very different programs. They are made by the same company though, but serve a different purpose --CCleaner removes crap, and Defraggler defragments and optimizes your disk.

I can't comment on your case, but it works much better than most defragment programs I have tried. I haven't done much speed comparisons though, as I usually only run the defragment jobs at night. The defragment software in Windows doesn't do any optimizations beyond defragmenting AFAIK, so comparing the speed makes little sense.
