    Do you mean PageDefrag, that is the limitations of the Windows NT/2000 (You can use sysinternals PageDefrag v2.32). It runs as a boot-time process that defragments the system files before they are locked by windows.

    Microsoft made most of the system files moveable starting with Vista. So if the built in windows defrag can move system files then we expect all the other software to be able to do that. Parhaps better Defragging the page files requires one to do it before Windows boots. But since algorithms of softs differs from one to another and also from Windows OS to another then they will do it differently. The exceptions are certain system files that must be stored in specific locations.

    Fixbee is straightforward and so not much control like single file defrag…

    how good is it compared to others progs as Defragler, Puran, O&O?
    the mentioned softs have some years of activites behind at least the well known O&O and they support Defragment exactly what you want. They are all well reviewed and experienced.
    The best way to compare is to make test on the same drive and to find gain space for instance after defrag, also speed of booting, program launch…but this requires at least 4 identical hard drives with the same state!

    if you feel well with a certain defrag tool then stick with it, sometimes even well known defrag tool can cause peoblem so safety first. You can also make a restore point in order to go bakc to an earlier state if something happens on the road.

    Does it also defrag those systemfiles that are left alone by Windows own defrag prog?
    And, how good is it compared to others progs as Defragler, Puran, O&O?
