What is the Best FREE Disk Defragmenter?

I am trying to find the best "Free" disk defragmenter out there. I found one called "MyDefrag".

But I thought I would check with the experts out there to see if there might be better ones. Thanks!

Smartdefrag. I turn off the auto stuff and it's great. Auto isn't bad I just don't want am unessarry stuff in the background.
I'm like AusLogics Defrag, myself:

A bunch of other people around here seem to like Defraggler:
Another vote for Defraggler. It's quick, simple, and does a decent job of defragging.
Reclaim your office - Try the MB 660 headset now!

High level of background noise often makes it difficult for employees to concentrate fully on their jobs – or to communicate clearly on calls. The MB 660 headset helps you create a disruption free workspace.

But doesn't Defraggler cost $$??

You're asked to pay for Defraggler.  MyDefrag is free.

Both Defraggler and MyDefrag are on my machine and I've no problems with either.  Defraggler seems faster and MyDefrag offers more options.

Can't comment on Auslogics.

Defraggler is quick and good.  Auslogics has more options an I used To use it but something happened where it couldn't do a large file or something. But I moved to Smartdefrag and haven't had a reason to leave. It has 3 levels of defrag something only the paid one used to have  
Personally i've used all the defrag programs mentioned above and others during years. My conclusion is that none of them is the best in absolute: some are better for something, others for something else.
Just choose one of those and go with it.

I suggest to not use more than one on the same computer; although this won't cause particular problems it won't give a better result. This because these defrag programs uses slightly different algorithms, so optimization made by one won't be accepted by another as the best and it will apply his own one.

Anyway, currently the best and more popular defragment programs are the following:
Auslogics Disk Defrag (free for home users only)
Piriform Defraggler
IOBit Smart Defrag
My Defragmenter
UltraDefrag (open source)
Thank you much.    : )
