Windows only: Freeware application JkDefrag GUI is an advanced hard
drive defrag application that provides a graphical user interface for
the open source JkDefrag command line defrag tool. JkDefrag puts the
standard Windows defragger to shame with scheduled defrags, file
optimization, and options to include/exclude directories. On the fun
end of the spectrum, JkDefrag GUI has an installable screensaver tool
that automatically turns on and visualizes your defrag when your
computer is idle and hasn’t been defragged for a user-defined amount of
time. In all, JkDefrag GUI is the coolest Windows defrag app I’ve ever
seen, and best of all, it’s totally free.

Heard a lot about this program on the net over the last few months and finally decided to install it recently. For a freeware defragger, its not bad, but I can’t see what the fuss is all about. It’s controls and settings seem to either non-existent or inadequate. It also takes a long time to defrag. My opinion only (your’s may vary): I feel commercial third party defraggers like diskeeper are much more refined and flexible when it comes to defrag options, settings and ease of use. I use diskeeper on a regular basis and it is a superior program for quick and painless manual/automatic defragmentation of multiple drives.
