    I know I've said I use Diskeeper and prefer it over PD, but I do use both.
    What do you use and why do you think it's better?

    This is what I see in PD after a full defrag (below). What do you think of it?

    use diskeeper and I love it...not sure if perfect disk has this but setting diskeeper to defrag on a schedule is awesome...I just set it up for when I'm sleeping and I wake up the next day with a freshly defraged hdd

    all the profession defrag programa can do it on a schedule

    also, there's a batch to allow anyone to defrag on schedule just using the native defrag

    I like perfect disk though

    I couldn't say which is better coz if you look at the attached screenie, it shows a lot of fragmented files left behind in PD. Diskeeper also leaves some behind, though I'm not sure as to how much.

    in ntfs, consolidating the drive is more inportant then defragging the disc...if a choice has to be made between the two, pd consolidates the drive

    in addition, the file placement in the diskeeper has caused some issues with users, sometimes to the point of needing a reformat

    I've never seen anything similar with the pd program

    I've never had any problems with Diskeeper. System has been running ever so smoothly after defrag on boot. Now seeing if PD will do the same. :)

    I prefer diskeeper for 9x systems although it takes up a lot more space than PD and it is very proprietory.(Jus try uninstalling all of it.)

    I prefer PD for xp though.Much smaller footprint and is much friendlier and I think more proficient.
