    disc defrag show graphic? (vista sp1 all updates)

    I kind of liked the way disc defrag in XP showed a before and after graphic so that you could see what was happening although I realise it was fairly meaningless. Is there a similar thing in Vista or do you only see the window as attached while its going on?

    Get a third party defragger, we use "Perfect Disk" from Raxco

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    WSYWIG with the Vista defragmenter. As Dave said, if you want to see a graph or some other visual clue you'll have to get a third party product.

    Jeff hello,
    There are two that i like to use, both are free downloads.
    1.JkDefrag http:// http://www.filehippo.com/download_jkdefrag/ (v3.34 has alot of "neat stuff" with it)
    2. defraggler http://www.defraggler.com/ ( both have nice graphics)
    3. PS. tried v3.35 on the "JK" like v3.34 better.http://www.emro.nl/freeware/ (this gives the user "GUI" graphics user interface)
    Regards Plain Fred

    There are and have been for several generations of the MS operating system software a couple of areas, maybe more, that have always been deficient in the minds of MANY users - backup and defrag being two. So, it's not a new "problem" with Vista and many of us have routinely chosen third-party programs dedicated to these jobs.
