Live 1 sucks. Had it, hated it. Got Perfect Disk 8, now on 9. Got it on
Vista and XP and it's the best. It will do anything you want it to do. Check
it out.

Re: Still can't force 100 % defrag
Hi, Thanks for the info. You are able to force a complete defrag on your
drives with Perfect 8,9? Where did you buy Perfect 8 & @ what price? Thanks.

Re: Still can't force 100 % defrag
www.perfectdisk.com I think. It wasn't expensive and I use it all the time.
It will scan your system, then make a reccomendation on which way you want
it defragged.
The usual option is optimize file locations. This will move all your files
that you use the most into a position so you can get at it faster. Then the
other options are, Consolodate Free Space, which is a normal style defrag
and move all your files up on the drive. Then there is a basic defrag.
Also, it will allow you to defrag system files for an offline reboot. It
will reboot, run, and then enter windows. This will optimize your Swap file,
Meta data and all that stuff.
Rx Suite is the current version. I use the SmartPlacement default, it works
and it will show you the performance before and after. It's pretty
customizable. Help file is great, support is excellent.
I can usually get it to a 0.0 frag, sometime a 0.1 if I don't do an offline.
I use the system a lot, and defrag every month. It doesn't take forever,
depending on your drive. 250GB 7200 took 32 minutes total, including initial
scan. Not bad, and you can still work on your computer if you want while it
runs!
No problems. You can even tell it to use max CPU when not in use...I would
choose Perfect Disk over anything else out there. Better than norton or the
ms version of it.

Price varies of course. Check out their site.
