Published: November 1, 2006

Introduction
One of the limitations of the Windows NT/2000 defragmentation interface is that it is not possible to defragment files that are open for exclusive access. Thus, standard defragmentation programs can neither show you how fragmented your paging files or Registry hives are, nor defragment them. Paging and Registry file fragmentation can be one of the leading causes of performance degradation related to file fragmentation in a system.

"Puran" means "turkey" (the one that gets it on thanks givings day) in my language. This makes it a bit funny :D But it looks like a nice program.

The files go in disorder in only 10 mins OMG and takes 5-8 mins to make a complete defrag again

I simply let Windows 7 do it on it's own.  :)

Auslogic and the free O&O v10 do the job also.

Other than the not so obvious to you ;) you've posted in a nearly three year old topic so windows 8 was not around then.

Aside from that puran defrag is good and the built in defragmenter in win8 is also good with more improvements in speed and defragmenting compared to win7.

I wish to see a comparison of win8 defrag and Puran defrag.  :)

I don't know where you'll find one but google will be your best chance, my own comparison is justified by my use of win8 :)
