I just use Win7 one scehduled every day at 1 AM. Otherwise Defraggler though i'm still waiting for it to get automatic defrag mode.
Defragging every day  :o a bit of overkill isn't it  ??? with it set to auto i dont think it will defrag unless the system is more than 15% defragged anyway.
Defraggler has auto defrag scheduling in it's settings.

I tried Defraggler once, a couple of years ago, and hated it because it took so long time to defragment. It might be better to day.

Defraggler has auto defrag scheduling in it's settings.

Why? If there is a lot to defragment, it will do that. If there isn't, it will do it quickly.
HDD's are very tough, they don't just wear out like SSD's if you poke them too much.

Why? Let they focus on the security (antivirus + firewall) :)

I used to use Auslogics and it is very good and very fast but I switched to Puran free because it has more options and can defrag the registry, page file, and MFT during a boot scan.

I think you mean MFT ;)

I think your right about it being the MFT (which does get fragmented).

@ Dch48
However, I'm not sure if it is able to defrag the MFT, or not as I do occasionally run it as defrag on boot, I still have 2 fragments for MFT and Registry on my XP Pro system in the C:\ partition.

I must try another boot-time defrag on this XP system and see if that has changed.

EDIT: just checked this out with the latest Puran Defrag and the boot-time defrag does indeed defrag the MFT and Registry.

When I mentioned JkDefrag, I should probably have put JkDefragGUI. It is far more advanced now in functions than the older version, is quick and well worth checking out. I use it on windows xp.

Ever considered MyDefrag, from the same person?  :)
