    I tried a bunch of times, but windows xp pro defrag doesnt defrag my 1gb+ files.
    Is there a program out there that will?
    gonna look up reviews.

    What kind of files are they? VHDs, logfiles and some Xvids won't defrag but it usualy means they aren't written in NTFS format or there are errors in the files.
    The OSx ISOs I got wouldn't defrag because windows didn't recognise the format. I think it was you that had the MAC stuff?

    k, i'm stuck in the middle now.. gonna read review on these both.
    Last time i used 3rd party defraggers (not there 2 yet), they gave me major slowdown on the hd and stuff.

    It seems only my .ISO, .Bin, .Vhd (virtual hd from virtual pc) files wont defrag. Sure those other programs can also? How do they get fragmented and not have a way to defragment them..darn.

    reviews/rateings:

    Cnet:
    Diskeeper=61%good 39%bad Perfectdisk=67%good 33%bad

    Zdnet:
    Diskeeper=65%good 35%bad Perfectdisk= no rateing yet

    Perfect Disk:
    About.com gives Perfectdisk a great review

    Amazon.com gave PerfectDisk 5 star review


    Diskeeper:
    Pc Mag gave Diskeeper a good review

    PC World gave Diskeeper a good review


    My conclusions are they both look pretty good.
    I mean the Diskeeper reviews said it could defrag while your running applications, and the perfectdisk reviews said it was slow but did a better job that diskeeper.

    1) Perfect Disk
    2) O&O
    3) Diskeeper

    Just my opinion - but I love a good defrag - in all seriousness I tried them all recently B)

    Forgot to add

    If you get PerfectDisk get DiskState as well [ also from Raxco ] they work well together
