Good disk defragger other than diskeeper? - Page 2

post #11 of 14
Thread Starter 
Ok, I think I like O&O better, but can it defrag system files, like the paging file and such?

Also, I am a bit unsure. Can it work 100% in the background after setting up the one touch button or whatever? So I would never need to actually run it again and press the button? It just always will work in the background without user initiation or intervention? That is what I like about diskeeper.

Are there any other defrag programs that automatically defrag the hard drives in the background like diskeeper?

If you are using 2x1TB drives in RAID 0, then Windows/DK sees it only as a 1 TB volume isn't it? From the comparison chart it appears as if DK Pro supports up to 1 TB and Propremier upto 2 TB.

You can check out the free trial versions to see if it works. AFAIK, none of the others use as few resources while background defragging as DK does, that's why I like it so much.

As has been said before, and will be said again in the future: 1 TB is a lot of data to lose, especially with a RAID 0 setup where the failure probability is doubled, so do remember to backup regularly.

Yeah, O&O is awesome, once you setup the disks to automatically defrag it'll put a little icon in your systray and activate from time to time. I still check mine occasionally, but its usually pretty well defragged anyway. You can pick which type of defrag you want it to do too, space, last accessed, last modified, etc

It can defrag system files, but not in it's normal background process (for good reason). You can set it to do them at every reboot though, if you'd like, in addition to manually specifying "Next reboot".
