Puran Defrag - I am not touting anything...

But I am letting you know about a program that I just ran for the first time. Puran Defrag, »www.puransoftware.com/Puran-Defr ··· rag.html , is a program I learned about via this Forum, and although I was using what I thought to be a good degragger, Defraggler, and a fast one, I just tried Puran Defrag. I am shocked at the speed that this defregger cleaned my system, 23+ minutes. Normally, the fastest clean I have had has been over an hour. I don't defrag often, so when I do, and with much moving around of files having been done, I would normally do it at night when I am not using the system. Today, I shut down, did my usual pre-cleanup, and off I went with Puran. I am just letting others know, who might also be thinking about trying it, that it probably would be worth your while to do so...just my opinion, of course.

I've used My Defrag for years on my other OS's but with W7/8 defragging really isn't as necessary if at all [is it?]..........so I just use the Windows app once a month.

I agree. Windows 7/8 runs the defrag program in the background on its own. You don't really need to do anything.

I never took the time to search it .. maybe someone can point to the info ?

Win 7 by default defrags Wed mornings 1am.
Does it do the switches for -b & -x , boot optimization & consolidate free space then too ?

I didn't know that. Obviously, I am still running an older version. Fortunately, as things stand now, I rarely have to defrag either, but when I do, it's nice to be running such a fast program in comparison to some others I've used in the past.

Has anyone ever proven that defragging changes performance at a perceptable level?

Not that I have seen. I think it made a larger impact years ago, when drives were slower. The last test I saw from MaximumPC, some of the defrag programs actually made performance worse! (start-up times, shut down times, etc...)

I think defrag programs are similar to screen savers in a sense. 15 years ago they supposedly helped prevent burn-in on your monitor, but now they are not needed due to better technology.

I would love to see an independent test, not sponsored by a defrag company, that shows real improvements from defragging your hard drive.

Hell even years ago, you could just (*gasp*) turn off the monitor.
