Is this taken from a Vista machine Uvais? It looks a little different to my Windows 7.

@ Jeet
Piriform's software is always good and if you're into that kind of thing, deffragler is great free software and a solid recommendation. I just don't like my system cluttered with unnecessary apps, especially when it does no more of a better job (ie. @ defragging) than the one installed by default. ;)



Are You talking about Screenshot ?

Yeas from Windows 7


Odd. If i run defrag /? my options are prepended with "/" not "-" ???


Mines are too ! and I think that's normal.

Btw, I too am a "Clean PC" lover, Defraggler just one of the few apps that I love for it's nostalgia quotient. It was one of my first defragmenting apps :) .

What do people need third party apps when build in Defragger does exactly what a third party app do/does? Is it just an imaginary of a NEED TO HAVE app that either makes you look cool or.... etc... There is nothing much of a difference between Defraggler and build in Windows Degragger... MHO...

But to add to Jeet's "Clean PC" comment, no one is as CLEAN as ME. LMAO!!!

If you're using Windows' built-in defragger, why not stick it on a schedule and forget about it? I've never manually run defrag on this system and Windows reports it doesn't need it.....just goes to show it does it all by itself! :D


But computer has to be running when scheduled defragmentation should start.

Might try to run defragmentation half way through the day, this should give enough time for operation to complete.

Why have pc on a running defrag schedule? Why not just defrag it once or twice a week, manually? :thumbup:
