Diskeeper vs MS Defrag?

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

I already own Diskeeper but I'm reformatting my hard drive and beginning again.

I'm wondering whether to reinstall Diskeeper or whether MS Defrag does just as well
and would appreciate any information or experience.

TIA

    I've read very good reviews about Diskeeper, but the user interface looks
    almost the same on both.

    Diskeeper is about 100 times faster. That's reason enough.

    Diskeeper can also defrag the MFT and Pagefile which the MS Defrag can't.

    its also worth noting that the MS defrag is an adaptation of the same engine
    written by the diskeeper people. Think of it as Diskeeper Lite. Very lite.

    If you already own it, by all means, use it.

    Thanks - that's a good point

    "Diskeeper Lite" is too kind. Brain-damaged Diskeeper is more accurate.

    Interesting that Intel bundles a Diskeeper Lite on the CD with some of its
    motherboards... Ben Myers

    You've paid for it, so why not? I always download and run Diskeeper
    when they have a free trail.
