    so i was using O&O defrag, but i found that it wasn't doing the greatest job. my drives would just stay at the same level of fragmentation for weeks

    i tried defraggler. i like how lightweight it is. it was going to take forever to defrag one of my drives because it only had about 15% free space

    so, i just copied all the data to an empty drive and then copied it back. now it has not fragmentation. only took an hour


    *obviously nothing if you have a SSD

    I don't. I haven't had to defrag in many years.
