Hello,

 

Not sure were to post my question so I will start here,

 

Just have a question on disc defragment.

 

I know windows has the built in disc defrag, but is that better to use than the

defragment program that I noticed on bleeping website?

 

any help is appreciated.

 

Thankyou and have a good day. :thumbup2:

Yes,Windows defragger would be enough for you. For 3rd party Auslogics Disk Defrag is most reliable and safest trough my 3 years of usage.

- I would recommend using the build-in Windows Defragmentation program. It knows how Windows organizes the files on disk and therefore defragments/optimizes the disc better than other 3rd party programs.

If it is Vista or higher it will be the best to use the built in Windows one.  The reason why is it looks at what you use the most often and puts them in order.  Of priority.  Don't forget to run it several times or until it starts going through very quick.  Also it has a auto defrag but most computers sleep during that time, so I suggest doing a defrag on your own once a week to keep it running good.
