  • Windows defrag alternatives!

    The windows defrag can be a bit of a nightmare sometimes and it's usually an overnight affair.
    I've seen some good feedback about Mydefrag formerly known as JkDefrag.
    Some bad reviews about Ultradefrag, and mixed about some others.

    I was wondering if anyone has used any alternatives and their feedback.


    Thanks

    I use Auslogics Disk Defrag on all of my servers. It's developed into a fairly nice defrag utility over the last several years. The current version has a scheduler and real time defrag capabilities, including a throttling mechanism, and also has the abilitiy to defrag individual files and folders. The best part is it's free.

      At my workplace, they use the enterprise versions of Diskeeper. Works really well since it's fast, reliable and resource consumption is low; the automatic defrag/scheduling options are also highly flexible.

      FWIW, I use the desktop version on my two personal XP systems at home, and I am very pleased with it. For a brief period when I had Vista as my primary OS, I continued to use Diskeeper; but I dumped Vista altogether later on.

      BTW, none of the above versions are free; free time-limited trial versions are available from their site though.

        The last time I checked, the pricing for Diskeeper was several hundred dollars per server, which made it cost prohibitive for us.

          I'm another user of Auslogics Defragger.

          It also comes in a portable version.

            Thanks folks,

            I'll have a look at that.

              I've been using this for quite some time

              http://www.iobit.com/iobitsmartdefrag.html

              Very simple interface, throttling, scheduling.

              And it's free...
