    i get the same with diskeeper 8 and perfect disk. the 1st time i run the defrag after install, it works. the 2nd time i open the thing, it says the drives aren't recognized or active or something like that. it's similar for both defragers. wtf is goin on? now ever time i want to defrag, i have to reinstall the program.

    Abu, I feel your pain.

    PerfectDisk used to do that to me all the time.
    I would get the message that "PerfectDisk cannot find the computer".
    Stunned, I would yell at it-" Look around you, you MORON! You're IN the bloody computer!".

    This failed to work for some reason.
    At the top of the program, from one of the tabs ( sorry, I forget which cause I now use Diskeeper), you'll get a drop down menu which has the option to "Find computer".
    Click that little bastard.

    I still use the one that's part of the now old-as-hell Ontrack SystemSuite 4.
    I think it's made by someone else now, with a new name. But it works for NTFS, does a good job, and has
    a buttload of other tools with it. So I'm not changing, meh

    I now use Diskeeper 8.0

    When I had both programs installed, I could run Perfect Disk and it would leave a few fragments. Diskeeper would catch them.

    Perfect Disk is nice cause it has the "smart placement" feature for boot files, but I just run BootVis every once and a while instead.

    Since I have several partitions I only have to defrag my C: drive on a regular basis and Diskeeper will polish it off in about 20 seconds.
