Why not just schedule Windows Defrag?

- Collapse -

Well, to those who stand by the need to defrag, the standard Windows Defrag is not very good. So I was looking for something els. not to mention my Windows Scheduler seems to not work correctly if I remember correctly.

Works for me.

I let XP Defrag run weekly and on another machine have Diskkeeper. Can't see why I'd buy another diskkeeper.

Of course you can pay up and get something a little better. Your choice here. I have both and can't say its worth it.

Windows Schedule & Defrag

I have my computer set to defrag with windows defrag using windows scheduler. No problems here.

Then you don't need defrag

All defragging does is shuffle data around. It really doesn't do anything particularly useful for modern computers, though saying as much as tantamount to heresy to some. You could stop defragging now, and never notice the difference. And since it doesn't really do anything but shuffle data around, which has negligible effects (if any), why not save some wear and tear on the disk drive and skip it?
