    Just as the title implies, and im sure most of you already know ho
    lackluster the vista defrag is. I want to see how much of an improvemen
    defragging is making, but vista somehow left out this important part

    I've read jfdefrag was good, but this tool is a 1 click auto go kind
    thing, and performs defragging on all hard drives. I know it has som
    commandline tricks that will allow it to change some options, but i
    prefer to run something with an option menu, and I only want to defra
    my c drive

    I don't know why you are bothering. Vista Defrag is perfectly adequate
    and works in the background when your machine is idle...

    I am just a regular user. Any MVP will tell you Vista does its defrag in the
    " background "automatically, and that there is nothing you should worry
    about or waste your time on.
    That said, if you insist that you want to see it in action, try Auslogics
    Disk Defrag. It's free. [ Caution : don't mistaken with Auslogics Registry
    Defrag.] It allows you to choose which disk to be defragged. Once started,
    you can see the " play by play ". You can find it in google.

    The freakin' busybody nanny from the UK strikes again.

    "dskater41":

    Google "SmartDefrag" and "Defraggler".

    SmartDefrag is freeware copycat of Diskeeper.

    Defraggler comes from the folks at CCleaner. It's neat - and free -
    too.

  6. You already have the best free tool for defragging your hard drive. Let it
    do its business and all will be well.

    1. i don't know why everyone seemed to want to double pos
    2. telling me the vista defrag tool is adequate is not help at all, i
    may be the best for you as a casual user, i have more specifi
    requirements

    -i only want my c drive defragged, vista tool does all drive
    automaticall
    -vista tool doesnt show what its doing or the progress in real tim
    -vista doesnt touch fragmented files larger than 64m
    -almost all aftermarket defrag tools use the same defragmentation AP
    that microsoft uses, making it safe and stable, and they allow you t
    see the progress and improvement its making, and give you more option
    like sorting files by type, size, use, and leaving hard drive spaces fo
    temp files such as internet files so crap doesn't get scattered all ove
    your hard drive

    To the guy who suggested auslogics thanks ill check that one out i
    some detail, but no other posts were of any help

    Are you saying that you got nothing of value from the busybodies and
    nannies who posted their advice that you didn't ask for?

    Here are a couple more items to take a look at:

    Google "SmartDefrag" and "Defraggler".

    SmartDefrag is freeware copycat of Diskeeper.

    Defraggler comes from the folks at CCleaner. It's neat - and free -
    too.

    You're an ass.
    You're definitely an ass.
    It wouldn't matter to you anyway, you're just being an ass.
    Maybe he does. You don't care, you're just being an ass.
    What's your reply got to do with the request??

    You never answered the request. You just butted in with your nanny
    advice when it wasn't asked for.

    You're an ass.

    Advising the OP that he doesn't actually need what he's asked for is
    nothing to do with being a busybody or a nanny.
    Idiot.

    have found another that defrags all drives and in the process scrunches up the data getting rid of the holes.
    JkDefrag, comes in 32 and 64 bit flavors.
    can be run as a task or left to run and work as you use windows.
    different programs in the zip you download.
