    Windows Defrag (since Vista) is very good.
    Also, use Steam's defrag facility.

    EDIT: Eh... erocker... always there... always watching... :)

    Yep they pretty much covered it all. I mean you can use something like Defraggler to set things to certain places on your HDD but overall what is already built in is more than enough.
    If you check into Scheduled Tasks you will see that Windows will Defrag itself without any intervention at all.
