Check out Puran Utilities, I have been running for several years.  It is also loaded with other features.

Defraggler ... https://www.ccleaner.com/defraggler .... is free and easy to use.

 

However, to be honest, most modern hard drives rarely need defragging, and if you have a SSD then you absolutely should not defrag it.

You're welcome. :)

 

If you do choose to use Defraggler, you get a quicker defrag if you just defrag the fragmented files rather than the whole disk.

 

To do that ....

 

 

  • Open Defraggler
  • Click on Analyze and allow it to finish its analysis.
  • Now click on View Files
  • Check the box next to Filename (at the top of the list of found items) to select all the fragmented files found during the analysis scan.
  • Click on Defrag Checked and wait for the defrag to complete.

 

Please note ... Defraggler does not defrag System Restore files, so if any are present in the analysis list, they will not be defragged.

Are some free defragmenter programs suitable on Windows 10 and especially Windows VISTA?  I often find defragmenting on my VISTA machine using the defragmenter that comes with Windows, I always need to wait a few minutes at the beginning for "Analyzing", TWICE!  There is also no display of actual defragmentation progress; and no other fine controls to set.  (Haven't yet tried to use existing Windows-included program to defragment Windows 10 machine yet).

I'm using the paid version of O&O Defrag on my Vista desktop, once recommended by Jerry Pournelle. On all other computers (Vista laptop, Xp desktop etc) I prefer the portable version of Auslogics Disk Defrag. I think it's a good defragmenter. Has some options too: Defrag, Defrag and optimize, Quick defrag (without analyzing) etc. Waiting for analyzing doesn't take much time. I run it manually when needed.
