Anyone Check out Vopt defragger?



I had been using the Vopt 6.2 defragger for Windows 98/ME for quite awhile and liked it.

Then I upgraded to Windows XP and it would no longer work. Well I see that Vopt now has a defragger that does work with XP. It's version 7.10.

I am curious to know if anyone's tried it and what do you think about it compared to the others.


I am using the trial version right now.

On the 6.2 I had used before, the swapfile showed up as green squares. On this new version is doesn't. It's just the same color as everything else.

Anyone using it know why that is?


Interesting little defragger. I just downloaded a trial version and seemed to work pretty good, and fast also. I especially liked the way you could click on the clusters and it tells you the program.(like Norton used to do)
As for the colors (PF being green) it's that way on mine.
The only bad that I could see was, I had my files set up a certain way w/SpeedDisk and Vopt decided it didn't like the files at the very end so it moved them up with the rest of them-guess I have to exclude them. But everything else seemed to work real well.

Vopt is similiar to the built-in defragmenter in Win2k and WinXP in that it lacks certain features. For example:

- How do you defragment the pagefile?
- How do you defragment the hibernate file?
- How do you defragment directories on FATx partitions?
- How do you defragment the metadata on NTFS partitions?

While most home users may not notice the lack of such features, most "power" users end up getting a more full featured defrag product.
