Defragmenting the News

My review of mst Defrag is still in the pipeline, and this short article is just to mention some interesting events this month:
The PerfectDisk blog mentioned the Great Defrag Shootout and said some complimentary things about my efforts, in an article called "The good, the bad and the ugly". They seem to be a great bunch of guys, and I'm looking forward to see what they do with their next product. got its first GPL defrag project. I don't think it's been around as long as JkDefrag, and a first look at UltraDefrag shows it to be very much a version 1.0 product, but competition is good for everyone, including the commercial defrag products.
The "Gui for Jeroen Kessels JKDefrag" from Emiel Wieldraaijer now includes PageDefrag support and some other useful things, including multi-language support.
I discovered yet another free defrag program, called WinContig, not related to Contig by SysInternals. This program can defrag files and folders, but I couldn't get it to do a whole drive, but I'll do a review of this product as well. The review queue never seems to shorten.

The Great Defrag Shootout: Part I | II | III | IV | V | VI | VII | VIII | IX | X | XI | XII | XIII | XIV | XV | XVI | XVII | XVIII | XIX | XX | XXI | XXII | XXIII | XXIV | XXV | XXVI | XXVII | XXVIII | XXIX| winner | all | why
