Default Is using the windows vista defragmentation tool the best way to defrag on vista?

Is using the windows vista defragmentation tool the best way to defrag on vista or is there a free downladable defrag tool that is better?

Vista works fine.
Of course large hard-drives take a long time.

the one in Vista is perfectly fine. You really won't be benefiting much from using a custom program.
Like spyware said, if you do a lot of installing and un-installing...then maybe a custom program may be a better option for you. But as a regular everyday user, the one built into windows, is plenty

I disabled Vista defrag as I prefer more control than it offers and the scheduling thing is crap.

I use Auslogics Disk Defrag
