    effective defragmenter?

    I need a disk defragmentation tool that will perform a "full" defrag or as close to that as possible. I have a computer with a relatively small HD (under 100 GB). I want to defrag it as well as possible (boot-time defrag?). I have Diskeeper 2009, but it just performs quick defrags and the drive is still fragmented. I just want a tool that defrags everything it can in ~24 hours.

    You may try SpeedDisk or Perfect disk. However, please take a note that certain files can not be defragemented according to the size of the file and size and number of fragements. You need to defragment the file system only if these software prompts that the defragmentation is recommended.

    I have found that Diskeeper will fully defragment a drive provided that there is enough free space to allow it to do so (files that can't be moved excepted of course).

    How much free space do you have on the drive? You need a minimum of 10% and preferably 20% free space on a drive for it to be able to function properly.
