View Full Version : Speed disk vs Windows Defrag

Since purchasing Nortons Systemworks, I regularly use Speed disk. Previously I would use windows defrag. Just curious but....is there any views out there which is better and if they supposedly do the same job, why is it (as an experiment) that I can run one after the other and the second run (defrag) appears to be moving blocks around as if it was never done by Speed disk.

Because they both have their own way of organising a disk when defragging. For example, on might put the swap file first, another may put the system files first.

stay with speed disk its faster and more effective dont use more than one defrag program however .
I use 2002 my self and find it very fast and effective , pays to set your virtual memory swap files to a certain size as this helps to optimise the hard drive
