Can you do a boot time defrag on windows 7 with version 10?
I think I've run it yet. But, now, I'm afraid to test...

Do not do it! I think I read somewhere that people were not able to reboot windows 7 after doing a boot-time defrag with version 11. Not sure about version 10 but best to be safe.

Well, it's time to test. I've made a full partition backup yesterday...

OK just to redefine what I'm looking for in a Defrag program:

1 Must be "free".
2 Able to do "off line Defrag".
3 Able to specify exact file placement on drive (system file & user file).
4 Able to Defrag multiple drives at the same time.
5 Able to do scheduled Defrag.
6 Not a CPU hog.

It's an old feature of Norton Disk tool for defrag. I think you won't find this one in freewares anymore.

For all the others, Auslogic does the job.
