Fragmentation

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.

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.
