I'm not sure where to post this and I apologize if I have posted this in the wrong section of the forum...

About three months back, I tried defragging my c: with the windows defragger but it took so long, I gave up and clicked it off (at that time, I did not know defragging took hours).

A few of my files have been compressed but now the problem is, whenever I access disk cleanup, the thing freezes up at compressed old files and this is bugging me cause' my c: is left with 1.16GB and I NEED to clear those old crap.

Oh and besides, powerdefrag (the trial is finished), what other defrag programs would you recommend?

"Diskeeper Lite" the free version, is definitely better than the default XP version.
MSoft took the idea from that program anyway !

After all the hoopla I had to try Diskeeper. Diskeeper defrags, then while using your rig, XP moves files around for better performance. Without adding/changing anything, Diskeeper decides you have to defrag again, basically undoing XP's optimization. Diskeeper moves it, XP moves it, Diskeeper moves it again.

Maybe I'm just lucky but XP totally defrags my drive, why switch?

Diskeeper doesn't undo XP.

It puts all the fragmented segments together....

It actually checks the XP generated program optimisation list and defragments in that priority.

Just so you know... the defrag in Win 2k and XP are both DiskKeeper lite.

Umm... what about the first problem? What can I do about disk cleanup not being able to run?
