It will keep you tinkerers out of the pub over the holiday weekend ...... well maybe it's not that good!

Looking forward to comparing it with my favorite - JK Defrag.

Thanks, not sure it'll come close to JKDefrag though, but worth a go I suppose.

The only thing it's likely to beat JKDefrag on, is speed ;-). G

As both programs give you multiple choices as to how you wish to optimize the storage of data on your hard drive - if you choose conflicting optimizations you can waste a great deal of time just shuffling data around.

Are we talking about the same JKDefrag?! Mine gives me NO options/optimisations whatsoever. Just installed & opened UltimateDefrag & it seems to offer quite a few on that front.

Not sure about JKDefrag's way of doing things any differently from Windows inbuilt defragmenter (XP), because when I ran the latter after the former, it came up that I don't need to defragment the drive almost immediately. G
