I've heard that Vista's is pretty good actually. Any particular reason why you might not like it? Or are you just curious..?

I knew that was true about XP, but like I said, Vista's *should* be plenty fine.

I use Vista's myself, so maybe some people might chime in with other thoughts.

I know of one, it's called O&O defrag. it has more options than the Windows version. I'm pretty sure it's free but I'm not certain.

I would just stick with the vista defrag program, it should do just fine.

I use JK Defrag now, but I'm on XP. It may work for Vista though. Its free, and seems to do a good job.
It even looks at your most used programs, and other things, and changes the order based on this.

so you guys were mentioning that the XP defrag isnt very good, what where the ones you used instead of them because that is currently all I have and I dont plan on going to vista for atleast a little while longer.
