Or the power of the built in Windows defrager. What's wrong with the built in one?

If it defragments whats fragmented what does it matter? I don't get the hype on Diskeeper and other third-party fragmenters. I've used the Pro version of Diskeeper and there is nothing special about it.

the longest diskeeper has ever taken to defrag my 2 windows partitions equaling 52 gigs has been less than an hour, windows defragger has taken up to 5 or so and usually is done in 10 mins or less plus there is none of that retarded compacting files for 30 mins that windows defragger does but to each his own, i believe some 3rd party defraggers are better than windows

I've had Diskeeper lock up many times with XP Pro, I consider that pretty special. Windows defragger works better in my opinion.
