64bit Vista Defrag program

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
After using a disk analyze tool, vista defrag aint doing its job right

I need a power defrag that works in 64bit mode, and can handle multiple disks/partitions

also an auto schedule is nice so i can defrag at 3 am instead of when im tryin to run Crysis or something lol

I also use x64 vista and was struggling finding one I liked.... I actually switched from powerdefrag to Auslogics Disk Defrag.

http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag

Unfortunately the current version of the software does not have an auto schedule feature, but I usually just kick it off before I go to work or sleep. I did some research on there site and they indicate the next version will have a scheduler.

I am quite sure Diskeeper has 64-bit versions, so you can get with the free trial downloads if you head over to that site. Do note that boot-time defrag has been temporarily suspended with Vista in the latest build (781) due to some incompatibilities with SP1.

Guys, be careful with some of these 'free' defraggers- if they are not VSS-friendly ( i doubt any of them are) and you run them on VSS enabled volumes, it seems they can purge older shadow copies/restore points and trigger the creation of new ones. Apparently file movement should be minimized to prevent this problem, so the defraggers should have such an option. Or so I've read.

Anyways, you can thank Microsoft for this VSS mess..they clearly dont know/care about the difference between 4k and 16k cluster size lol.
