That's totally expected though. No defrag program in the world can be as effective as a fresh install. Also, programs installed on the outer part of the platter will perform ever so slightly faster than programs installed further in. (higher angular velocity)

Tsl Tsk....The angular velocity is constant accross the whole platter, it isn't higher towards the edge !!

Well, he is partly right, but it's the inside of the platter than gives highest burst speeds.
BTW. Way to bump an old thread

Im no RAID expert however one thing ill tell you is that if you want the best defragmentation and Information about fragmentation and a good graphical representation you will want to use Diskkeeper 10 here mate..Destroys Windows defragger.

I defragmented my Raid 0 right after performing some benchmarks, then after the format did some benchmarks ....... got the same.

I guess it was cause the benchmarks wasn't using the data on my drive but my drive's read/write capabilities

I use O&O Defragger on my RAID 0 setup and I was wondering if that is the best program or if there is a better one what is it? Window$ Vi$ta Ultimate x64.
