    I tried O&O defrag , it is so slow. Auslogic is better.

    Me, too! Back in the "old days" defragging was the "fix" for everything performance-related on a PC and I believe it was overrated. I use the built-in software and I get good results. Defragging an old 5400rpm drive isn't going to speed anything up...

    Diskeeper seems to be the best for the moment. The built in defrag also is good enough.

    MyDefrag v4.3.1

    Been using My Defrag for ages, and it seems to work fine, thus far, with Windows 8 Pro.

    Quite zippy IMO too :)
