Hi, I'm looking for a free alternative to Diskeeper. One of the features I really liked about Diskeeper is its boot-time defragger, where it defragments your page file and master file table. I was wondering if there are any free defraggers that could also do that.

Puran Defrag - Automatically Defrag your Hard Disk Drives.

After reading the capabilities, if you want to down load the program, make sure you select the "Download This Utility" button and not the "Download Puran Utilities".

It's been almost a year since I've installed this on my computer, at that time there wasn't any unwanted bundled software added in during the installation.  But things can change, so if a customized installation is offered, select that option and be on the look out for anything other than the defrag program trying to install.

If you prefer, you don't have to set up any schedule, you can just defrag from the UI when you like.  Same thing for the boot time defrag.

Chrome huh, why am I not surprised? I just downloaded and tested.

The results:
VirusTotal Antivirus scan for PuranDefragSetup.exe.
