I have been using the built-in Windows defragmenting software for years now, thinking all was well.
Two days ago, someone recommended Piriform Defraggler:
I had checked my HDD's using Windows, and all was fine, then ran Defraggler - what a shock - my photo storage drive was 24 percent fragmented and it took about eight to ten hours to defragment it using Defraggler. This machine runs Win 7 64 bit.
After the defragging was complete, Lightroom speed was considerably better.
On my Win XP business computer I found similar results. My wife ran Defraggler on her machine and immediately noticed that access to e-mail and the net was much faster.
Anyone else use it?
