    I have Diskeeper 2008 which does NOT work on large drives (over 1TB). The
    new Diskeeper does, but I don't want to pay their ridiculous prices again,
    now with add-ons. (yes, I have a lot of files on my Vista box) So, I need:

    1.Vista compat.
    2. Works with over 1TB

    Is there ANYTHING good out there? Please don't tell me to use MS
    defragmenter.
    Tks.

  2. Considering using a dedicated, robust defragmenter:

    This may be one of your choices:

    http://download.cnet.com/Smart-Defrag/3000-2094_4-10759533.html

    and this another one, being part of the tweak:

    http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/System-Tweak/DTweak-Free.shtml,

    see if one of them suits you.

    Another option would be to switch to Linux and forget defragmentation
    altogether.

    JkDefrag if you're looking for a free option; otherwise PerfectDisk is a
    good choice.

    The same reason they make registry "fixers" for Windows: snake oil.
    You, constantly.

    Because of this:
    "PerfectDisk Live is a subscription that is not a Raxco supported product.
    For this reason, Raxco does not have access to your billing or account
    information. Raxco has received numerous inquiries regarding this
    subscription and we understand the reason for the confusion."
    So, how do they get my information??

    I have run Ubuntu and it's fun. However, it has a small software base and I
    need to get work done.

    Sure as hell does. The only one I can find is for ext2, minix, and xiafs
    - which hardly anyone uses. Been running Linux for nearly 10 years now -
    total number of defragments: zero.

    What programs do you need to get your work done?

  12. Please do not discourage Frank from venturing into making vaguely technical
    posts. They can be hilarious!

    Quark, .docx compatibility, Filemaker Pro, Pagemaker, others. The server
    version is installed on some of these.
    Don't get me wrong, I'm not putting Ubuntu down. Eventually they will have
    the software base too.

    Open Office 3 can handle .docx. As I am not into desktop publishing, I
    don't know if there are comparable programs available for the other
    programs you use.

    Really and that snake oil would be?
    Actually, hot shot, do you know what happens when you reboot Ubuntu
    every 39th time?

    I didn't think so.

    And maybe you didn't understand what you were reading. The article is
    really pushing a data recovery app, based on the premise that one has to
    revert to the older ext2 file system in order to even attempt a defrag
    and that such a reversion could cause data loss. The article seems
    poorly written and flies in the face of existing knowledge about linux
    defragmentation.

    Not at all.
    You and "think" is an oxymoron.

    Snake oil is the only thing being sold on that site and YOU obviously
    need an adult to read it to you and explain it to you.
