    Auto, Diskkeeper defrags automatically if the disk is fragmented, when the PC is idle.

    I defrag my HDD using Norton Speed Disk every month...
    I usually start it in the night and when I wake up in the morning ... it's done...
    So no waiting game here...

    The options in the poll are inadequate so I couldn't vote. I used to defrag almost once every 2-3 month. But since I don't use use Windows that often now, I don't defrag that often. May be once every 5-6 months :)

    I was **BETA TESTER** of Executive Soft's Diskeepr 9.0 Home...
    And after testing and being a **Good Customer** from last 2 years Executive Soft lets me download Diskeepr 9 for FREE... :D

    Diskeeper scheduled every Monday night at 0001 Hrs...

    It simply rocks... and manages my 80GB maxtor perfectly... :)
