Take it from me. I used the ALL. Perfectdisk,Diskeeper and O&O for paid. For free I have used Smart Defrag,Auslogics,Defraggler and Quicksys. All the paid products install a dumb back round service and take for ever to defrag your drives. Perfectdisk took well over an hour on no matter what machine I used. Smart Defrag was always my choice but I never saw much improvement after bench marking my drive. Now with Auslogics new version I am amazed at the over speed of my pc and boot up. No its not just my imagination either. Bench marks also went up. When it comes to disk defraggers there is absolutely no reason to pay for any product.
Honestly speaking have any of you tried Perfectdisk? Its a real nice program with a cool GUI but come on. Why does it take so long and why should you pay for it when it installs 2 services. Blah. Sure it has a boot time defrag but thats a marketing gimmick. Windows does that itself about every 4th boot up.
Correct me please, if I am wrong, but I thought it was actual only for Vista and 7 that are able of doing boot defrag. But for XP users this abbility of PerfectDisc may be very useful.
I tried the latest version of Perfect disc 10 and my 50 gb partiton (20% full it always finished in 10 minutes). What do you think guys about My defrag? According to Gizmo's freeware it's the most recommended free soft.
I personally love very much Smart Defrag. Great program
Yes you are wrong and 50 gigs isn't much to defrag anyways. I have a 320 gig hard drive with 100 gig of stuff in it. My Defrag is the most ugliest program out there. Let PD do a Smart placement on your entire drive and not just a small partition. I bet it will take over an hour.
