I heard that perfectisk and O&O were good programs for defragging your windows based system. Is there anything better or faster? Which would you recommend?

But affective .. I think of defragging like I think of burning a cd: The slower it goes the better it will turn out.

That logic is flawed.

1) With new high speed cdrw drives, write quality is better at higher speeds.

2) Everything is indexed on the hard drive, so it's just a matter of putting it back together and then logically moving it to regain free space. Speed is not a factor.

Actually that logic still stands for cd's as at faster speeds the lazer doesn't burn as deep and thus more prone to data errors over time.

That's only true on older media. New media/drives are optimized for high speed. A high speed drive + high speed media burned at low speed (<16x) = more c1/c2 errors.
