Hi,

Is there a freeware defragger that's a lot better than Windows defragger, one that I don't have to be connected to the internet to use it? I did a search here and O&O was recommended but it has to be purchased.

Thanks in advance . . . Denise

I don't think there is a freeware one, but just type defragmenter into google and see what it finds. You'll get a lot of hits no doubt and you'll just have to trawl through them to see what it is.

EDIT: I'm wrong apparently! Just found this:

Hi, thanks for the link. After a lot of searching, I also found Diskeeper Lite, which was freeware, and it does a good job and it's fast.

Windows defrager is based on the diskeeper of the time so it usually a safe bet to go with diskeeper however according to that its based on diskeeper 7 the same thing windows is so it seems its just a slightly cut down or optimised version of the standard windows defragger. If you want the best i would reccomend diskeeper 10 does a great job with my drives in all my computers.

The problem with Diskeeper 10 is the same problem with all of the defraggers on the net . . . they cost money. I'm on a tight budget but I want to keep my pc's performance at optimum. DirMS is a good defragger but it requires the pc to be connected to the internet, which is the reason I stopped using it after I discovered it.
