Hi Pyronox,

You might give the free Auslogics Disk Defrag a try to see how you like
it. I find it to be a pretty good little program to use.

'Auslogics - Download Auslogics Disk Defrag'

Re: Which Defrag software should i go for?

hey its pretty neat for a freeware. any program that provides the option
of queue up my drives so that it can defrag one after another. Mind u
the program u mentioned was really good. and one other thing what would
your advice be on a registry cleaner for a x64

I use the free version of *Wise Registry Cleaner* and have not had any
problems with it.

Hi,
Also, just FYI: Diskeeper 2008 Pro and Pro Premier editions have Vista
and XP 64-bit support.

Best regards

None. The built-in defrag works just fine, and completely invisibly. Also,
it is designed not to mess with the file placement algorithms Vista uses to
speed up start times.

What's wrong with the one in Vista already? Nothing, and it runs in the
background on schedule so you don't ever need to be concerned about defrag
in Vista. But if you must play program manager then Piriform, the makers of
CCleaner have a free defrag utility that is quite good.
