    Who needs to defrag. My disks constantly say they are in perfect shape. 37 games and counting.

    All Defraggers optimize differently if at all. Some just defrag and arrange all the files together and others take those and arrange specific ones closer to the center of the disk, the faster part of the drive...the problem is all of them decide differently which needs to go where and it never seems to make any noticable difference and the moment your drive writes a file that belongs in a particular cluster then you ruin the whole idea of it as the head still has to move to access the newly written data which likely at the end of drive. A faster HD would at least be noticable.
    Though i never got why MS's File system doesnt do it like Linux's ext3..etc. so its not needed.

    I have not needed to use any Defrag on my Win 7 systems since day 1 of Beta testing.

    With a 1TB HD in each of my machines and about 700GB of data on each one, Win7 has always kept them at 0% Fragmented.

    Win7 auto Defrag is set to 1am Wednesday ...
    My PC is almost NEVER turned on at that time, so I think in 12 months it's probably been on at 1am maybe twice.

    I use Diskeeper 2009 pro on XP SP3, and will use it (or the next version) on Win7 when I put together a new rig early next year. I much prefer Diskeeper over the windows defragger.
