Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Hi guys am a bit of a luddite. My machine is running slow & I think I need to Defrag it to neaten up the files & gaps.

    Today I deleted GBs of big chunky AVI files some > 300MB mostly Channel 4 On Demand Stuff.

    Is there a decent free Defrag Utility for XP that does not put adware/search toolbars in IE ?

    Or is there a defragging utility within XP

    Many thanks in advance !

  3. The defrag tool bundled with XP is very slow.
    Go here and download the trial version of Ultimate Defrag. It's very fast and works a treat.
