Re: Defraging with Diskeeper 2008??
My main issue with automatic defragmenters is that often their idea of "in
the background" isn't the same as mine is.
My definition would be "when I'm not executing any intensive programs,
moving my mouse or using the keyboard", the last time I used Diskeeper at
least, it happily went off thrashing my disks at the same time that I was
trying to use them myself.
Microsoft's seems to be similar to Diskeeper except that it takes much
longer to do a worse job of defragmentation.
