Is there any point in using more than more than one De-fragmentation Program.

I currently run Defraggler, but am currently showing 14 Fragmented Files at around 27Mb in volume.

Some windows files cannot be defragged.

I have MyDefrag and Auslogics Defrag programs, both freeware, which I use alternately. On the odd occasion when I have run them one after the other, the second program seems to find a few files that still need defraging, but so few to be not worth doing regularly.

14 files total of 27Mb is nothing to worry about !

you should only use one defrag as they work different on how they work. using more than may corrupt files

I go with woodchip here. Years ago I did a full defrag of my drive and that was that. Wouldn't boot up. Since then I create an image before defragging. No need to do it now, though, using an SSD.
