I have been using a defrag called JKdefrag although it is an excellent defragger it takes sooooooo long to compete the task - an hour plus.
Is there a excellent freeware defragger that is as good as Jk but a lot faster
thanks

I usually just use the defrag built into Windows (tho I've heard that some people don't like that one...)

Try SmartDefrag from here: http://www.iobit.com...ml?Str=download

As well as defragmenting on demand, it will also run in the background (Auto Defrag) when your PC is idle
to stop fragmentation getting to the point where it can affect your PC's performance.

My computer takes more than an hour to defrag, I wouldn't call that abnormal.

Personally, I use the Windows Disk Defragmenter (XP's version based on Diskeeper Lite), or in Vista I use Piriform's Defraggler [sic] because I'm not fond of the built-in one. Although I wouldn't expect much faster results, depending on the size of your drive.

I would go with SmartDefrag. I've used it for some time now - no problems, fast, and it will also organise your hard drive as well as defrag it.
