Hello All,
I recently tried UltraDefrag. I set it to defrag last night. This am after running @ 5hrs it was only 10% done. I'm not sure if that has to do with the indexing service or not. Indexing service is off.( I keep my drives defraged with built in defrag several times a week) It took the built in defrag an hour to straighten the drive back out.
My question is, Does the indexing service have to be on in order for the defrag to work properly ? If so, is there any benefit to defraging the drive then turning the indexing service off, back on again for defrag ? My comp runs much faster with indexing service off. Thanks, Joe

Indexing service is used to extract content from files to construct indexed catalogs. This facilitates efficient and rapid searching.

Thanks, Jay-P VIP. I was under the impression that defragmenters used the indexing service also. Thanks for the reply.joe
