Hey ive heard of a few different defrag programs, but what do you guys think would be the optimal one for gaming? I just use the windows one right now but with all these new games computers startin to run a little slow :whistling:

So I was jus wonderin if anybody knew a Defrag program that optimized in gaming performance?


Thanks,
-Mike

All a defrag program does is look for all the bits of your files and puts them together next to each other. So it doesn't matter which defrag program you use, they'll all do exactly the same job in differing amounts of time.

You may have other issues with your system relating to your gaming though, which could include hardware beginning to die, malware, or even a flaky Windows installation.

I use diskkepper 10 myself, windows uses an older version of the diskkepper defrag, its faster than windows and offers slightly better performance but its not alot just a little more.

Nah its not my computer, its the new demanding games take alot more so it goes slower. I thought I heard of some Defrag somewhere that was supposed to put your files in order for optimal performance instead of the way windows does, but guess not, thx tho!

I tried PerfectDisk by Raxco. It defrags by the amount of changes to a file. If you change it often, the file will be placed in an area with more free space. If it's occassionally used, it goes into a space for files that are occasionally used. If the file is never changed, such as most software, those files are placed together.

This is the URL. I tried it and it seems good but it's not freeware. You can download a 30-day trial version but then you have to buy it or uninstall it.
