Is there an NTFS defragmentation tool available?

A. There are a number available for NT that I know of.

  • Diskeeper - This is available from Executive Software, A free cut down version is available for download, Diskeeper Lite. An update to version 5 is available to enable it to run on Windows 2000.
  • Norton Utilities for NT - This contains a disk defragmentation package,
  • PerfectDisk 2000 - from which has some new optimization that Diskeeper does not have and supports Windows 2000 out of the box.
  • O&O Defragmentation - can be purchased from which I have been informed works well.
  • VoptNT - is available from Golden Bow Systems,

Windows 2000 has a limited built in defragmentation tool which can be used as follows:

  1. Start the MMC (Start - Run - MMC)
  2. From the console menu select Add/Remove Snap-in
  3. Click Add
  4. Select "Disk Defragmenter" and click Add. Click Close
  5. Click OK to the main Add/Remove dialog
  6. Select the Disk Defragmenter option from Console Root
  7. Select a partition, Analyze and Defragment
