As a tech specialist working for Diskeeper Corporation, I have some experience in this area.

Have your friend check out Diskeeper -- There is even a free trail available at http://www.diskeeper.com.
If you have experience in this area, then share it!

If this is just a marketing plug for your paymaster's software, costing upwards of $350 depending on what PC you might run it on, then I refer all readers to my previous posts here: http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showpost.php?p=2202207&postcount=15 and http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=44839&highlight=defrag

Interesting: SSD defrag or SSD optimization?

http://blog.raxco.com/blog/all-thin...rag-software-optimizing-the-latest-technology

With Solid State Drives, file fragmentation essentially is NOT an issue - meaning that you don't typically see any measurable performance issues if a file is fragmented versus if it is contiguous. However, due to the nature of SSDs and how data is written to the drive, free space fragmentation can degrade write performance, and consolidation of free space improves SSD write performance. The whole idea with SSDs is to decrease the number of writes/updates to the SSD, as that is what degrades performance over the long term. Because you want to minimize writes and updates to the SSD, you want to be sure that any sort of optimization pass performed on the SSD does as little "shuffling" of files and data as possible.

With the upcoming PerfectDisk 12, a new SSD Optimize method focuses exclusively on what matters for performance to SSDs. Intelligent analysis is performed automatically and then utilizes sophisticated file and free space placement algorithms to provide peak SSD performance and better protect your SSD investment. We draw upon our pioneering work with free space consolidation and free space management to ensure optimal SSD performance. The technology intelligently minimizes “writing” to the SSD - which maintains SSD performance over the long term. And it's all done automatically.

Intelligent SSD optimization.

Agreed, were about to post +1 to CrAsHnBuRnXp myself (Free advertising FTW):)

OT: Out of all Defragapps I have used (a shietload) I have deciced to stick with Perfect Disk, I cant say if it´s teh best, but I sure can recommend it highly. On teh other hand I also might have become so used as to using PD that its just became a routine matter/reflex all of a sudden?:twitch:

Nuff said!

I use Defraggler, and usually use the "Quick Defrag" option. It seems to just skip the large files at the end of the defrag since it handles the small files first. Every now and then I'll use the full defrag.

Here's some defrag program testing performed last year: http://www.overclockers.com/defrag-frag/

Dude, I just answered a simple question:


Good defrag utility??
________________________________________
I read that there are some really good defrag utilities out there for hard drives, that are also better then the one supplied in Windows. Does anyone know of a good one my friends computer could use it.

I'm just trying to be helpful....

In my opnion, Diskeeper is the best solution out there (that's exactly why I work with them).

Sorry if my post rubbed you the wrong way.....

Man I cant speak for bonkers or any1 else, but I did participate in this so therefore I extend my apologies to you (my statement about "free advertising FTW!") I´m sorry m8.

I also have say that you are completely right about the fact of beleiving in the product that belongs to the company you work with, or else you wouldnt work with them unless your "h00ked" in one way or other, but I feel quite confident in your statement "that's exactly why I work with them.

I even give u thx for trying to help the threadstarter.

Can we leave this shit behind us alright?:pimp:

No, you didn't rub me up the wrong way at all! But you have to acknowledge you registered on this forum just for that post. Clear PR driven activity, your intentions are rather obvious. I bet you don't even have a desk at the Executive Software office, but you are paid as a freelancer for "PR activities".

Because IF you really had knowledge "and experience in this area" then you would have shared some of it. No matter how small that experience might be, something concrete, something objective, would have been useful and added to this thread in a constructive way.

If you come back to this forum or thread, don't let these criticisms scare you away. We are all genuinely interested in you sharing some of your knowledge. As a representative of Lisa Terrenzi, as a professional, as an expert in defragmentation, your contribution could help a lot of people - including myself - gain some insight.

Well spoken man...:respect:

Edit: I did notice way t00 late that you mentioned Raxco - they doesnt make Diskeeper, they make Perfect Disk & Bill R TechSpec claims he works for Diskeeper Corp. ;) as to clarify a little bit here.

For most users, the one that comes with Vista and Win7 does a perfectly fine job.
Closest thing to Perfect Defrag or Diskeeper and still freeware is Puran Defrag which is not bad.

As stated before I use Perfect Disk & thats my "preferred" defrag app.

So well now I figured about Defraggler that it might actually be a small/good utility for sure, as its made by Piriform which makes CCleaner which I happen to use/like alot.

I am not using windows own defrag, but sure it "works".
I haven´t used 0&0 Defrag...(Only heard about it/read some).
I also found that I personally didnt "like" Diskkeeper, but hey that´s just me!
Etc. etc.

So how about now, can we all just agree on/say/recommend that: All/most defrag utilties are "good" to use plz? (not which is teh better).

Cheers folks!

Well, Diskeeper is imo currently the most advanced program for the job. It's IntelliWrite is capable of preventing fragmentation on-write (where fragments actually happen) so it prevents the fragmentation from the start. So you don't have to grind on-demand defrags in regular intervals, just here and there.

^ I like Diskeeper too, because of that reason.

I used to use 0 & 0 with xp and server 2003 machines as you can set it to load balance or slow\pause on disc usage .... With 7 I just use the built in one ...

I have used Defraggler, Ultimate Defrag, Perfect Disk, Raxco, O&O Defrag, MyDefrag, Windows Built-In... and as of right now I find O&O does the best job. I use it on my main system and my media server, find its helps with boot and load times. For my school drive I still use Defraggler, a close second.
