"the one that comes with Windows"


Not since the dark days of 340MB hard drives, DOS 6.2 and Windows 3.1 have I ever noticed an increase in performance from defragging. I don't do it that often.

I’m confused. The poll is “ Best defrag software”, but in your first post you ask “what do you use to clean out those pesky fragmented files”. So, which is it? Are you asking for our opinions on what “we” think is the best defrag software our there, or are you asking what we use?


I use Norton Speed Disk, and have been using it since Win 3.1 and Norton Desktop. I’ve not used any other, except the Windows version which is slower than molasses. Do I think it is the best? I don’t know. Maybe not. Since XP came out, it doesn’t seem to do as good of a job, and lacks a lot of details that earlier versions had. So, since I’m not going to say it is the best and haven’t used any other defrag software, there is no answer in the poll for me to click on.


I’m posting so I can watch this thread to see what people think of other software. I heard good things about Diskeeper on another forum, but I don’t really want to invest the money when I already have Norton Speed Disk, however, I am interested enough in the subject to keep an eye out for something that would definitely be an improvement over Speed Disk.
