The Google Operating System blog had a posting recently about a freeware disk defragmenting utility I’d never heard of before:
Auslogics Disk Defrag is a freeware for Windows 2000/ XP/ Vista with a simple interface, that runs much faster than the built-in defragmenter. You can’t defragment more than one partion at a time or set advanced options, but that also means it’s easy to use. The program doesn’t use too many resources, so you can continue your work.
I haven’t used it yet, but I wanted to pass the information along. To learn more, visit the Auslogics web site.
