I am looking for a something to defrag my computer. Does anyone have any suggestions? I was told to get Perfect Disk, or O&O and many others. I am leaning toward Perfect Disk but I heard its not that great. Any and all help is deeply appreciated. Thanks & God Bless.

The defrag that comes with windows gets the job done. Have you tried that?

Disk Defragmenter that comes with XP is quite good.
Raxco Perfect Disk is more for proffesional/business use, but it would still work.

Symantec Norton Speed Disk takes a long time, but works.

System Mechanic 6 Defragmentor takes a long time as well, and isn't very effective [from what I observe].

System Mechanic 6 Defragmentor does take a little longer but it works perfectly and has really made a difference to my PC. System Mechanic 6 is a great program with lots of utilities.

IMO sometimes adding more things complicates matters.

The free one from diskkeeper has some limitations (Some files are not defragmented because there is no location on the drive big enough in which to defrag the file, which can leave hundreds of fragments on the drive).

Anyway, the basic one that windows comes with is fine (and based on diskkeeper, so it has the same limitations), it's just not as pretty as the rest.

An interesting alternative is DIRMS and Buzzsaw
