Take a look here: Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps. Scroll down to the section titled Hard Drive & System Utilites

All free, so try any and all you find. Use the one that works best for you.

Among paid 3rd party tools, I would recommend Diskeeper.I have been using DK for many years but the latest version is said to also prevent fragmentation upto a certain degree. (other useful options in it are the automatic mode, ability to defrag in less than 15% free space etc). Check out the trial and see if it works for you.

I asked the same question a few days ago here and many posted back that they used Auslogics defrag. I'm using it now on my system W7 64 and it works great. It's free.. Down load it from there home site, make sure you pick the one for your system. I have used Diskeeper Pro on another system for years and if you decide to buy one IMHO Diskeeper would be the one to get.

Running out of space

No defragmenter is likely to be particularly fast on a drive with little free space. Only clearing unnecessary clutter from the drive will help there.

But it will help significantly if there are some large files that can be temporarily copied off to another drive before defragging. The cleared space and reduced number of files will speed up defragging, and if the files being copied back again were originally fragmented, they will be defragmented by being copied back to now contiguous free space.
