    well it's in the question really.

    which is the best one of each in yuor experiance? i used to love Norton, but i wouldnt go near it with a 10ft bargepoll these days.

    the xp defrag looks highly unconvincing to me though......so what am i gonna get guys?

    hands down executive softwares disk keeper 8 is the best defrag ... windows xp's defrag is a very stripped down version of this .

    and try tuneup utilities 2004 for a registry and repair tool ... they have a 30 demo on line ... google it .

    the problem with xp defrag is it gives no detailed information about whats going on, yuo cant alter the options as to what is defragged (blank bits/occupied bits) what happens to clear space (left/wiped/overwritten) and to me there looks to be a HUGE amount of apparently 'unmovable' files . in the past the unmoveables have been like 40-50 little squares, in xp itsa massive section looks like about 60% of the colouresd area

    with so many 'unmovable' files how can the defrag be doing a decent job (moving files around to the front of the disc to make faster access)?

    so to put it briefly: its useless
