I remember that earlier KotaXor tried UltimateDefrag using Folder / File Name optimization (that DKT27 recommended), but his computer took 12 seconds longer to boot compared to using PerfectDisk. :o


i also remembered that and prefer perdectdisk
tested myself

TopTenReviews sucks indeed ;)

I currently don't feel like spending a lot of time to update the UD guide... What I like about it is that you can move the files yourself, but it could be possible that another program is more reliable for increasing boot times (for instance by having a 'basic' layout for the first 'n' files on the disk, dependent on the OS).

Can't judge about these at the moment, I guess :)

I can surely say one thing, UD is nothing without a updated guide. :rolleyes: Everyone who have been using it should know that there's a major difference in UD 2 vs UD 3 and XP vs 7. If you haven't used respect layout.ini, your boot time is going to be slow.

yep to those who said that it takes the bootup longer after defragmenting w/ UD, that's because you did it wrong. UD is not like your average automatic defragmenter and that makes it awesome though not much for average user as well who like install and forget.

if you plan using UD, you really need to read the manual and seek guides.

I'm sure Kotaxor has read the guide. :)

Just that the guide isn't 100% on Windows 7 and UD3.

I use and prefer Raxco PerfectDisk than anything else, I've used it for 5 years; I suggest you to use PerfectDisk specially for "SMARTPlacement" technology that gives you the power too choose the defragmentation method, Peak Performance or Hard Disk Health and even balanced mode.

If you set the services "PDAgent" to manual...there will also be no additional services started in PerfectDisk.
So is Diskeeper.
Then you will have to do manual defrag instead of auto.

ENJOY!

So, I will still prefer PerfectDisk, because I am a defrag noob and don't know how to make the UD settings suitable to me, I just like a fast and smooth computer and, frankly, PD does the job for me, was just interesting to read, what you guys wrote, :P. Thanks for all the replies, :)

Software and computers are my passions...
The ironic thing about that is, I couldn't know less of programming... :D (maybe only the basic stuff, :P)

If you like the product, go buy it

Trying to be as much of a freeware man as I can...

I found another way to mess up my pc. Ran Perfect Disk boot defrag, computer then stopped booting :frusty: Im pretty limited in my pc repair knowledge so decided to reinstall Windows (I was thinking of doing it anyway)
Funny thing was I uninstalled True Image the day before :rolleyes: because last time I used it, it screwed up my disk partitions. Talk about good timing :(
Anyway, back on topic. Decided to install Disk Keeper again and stick with that.
If theres a way of screwing things up, I usually manage to find it :D Just thankfull for Nsane, makes it easy to get good software on a new install, in a short amount of time. :dance2:

Should have just boot into "Safe Mode" and repair from there.
Diskeeper is good especially its "IntelliWrite" technology. Its also set and forget.
Usually installed it on friends' computer.

ENJOY!

I tried all I knew and couldn't get into safe mode. Tried lots on Hirens boot disk but couldn't figure out how to fix it. No restore points etc, couldn't get into EAZ. At least its now clutter free again, was nothing important on it to lose. Plus got to use new version of Daz's loader. :)
I could have spent ages asking for help and probably fix it but no real need to rescue anything.
Yes Diskkeeper fit and forget is what im doing now.

If you have your Windows 7 disk, you can also boot up from there and do a repair....but anyway all is over now...isn't it.
But of course a fresh install will rid all the craps that have remain...just ensure you keep your data on another partition or HDD to prevent loss if it ever happen again.

ENJOY!

Personally, i feel that Diskeeper 2010 is the best defragger out there...
AFAIK its the only one which has special support for SSD drives..

And if u want a really quick defragger, try Defrag Express.. Its really speedy!

Defrag SSD?
If you have SSD, don't need to defrag.
