    The safest defrag 3rd party defrag tool(not the fastest though) is Defraggler from Piriform, the developers of Ccleaner: Defraggler - File and Disk Defragmentation - Free Download

    The fastest, but in my opinion, too many extras, if you don't know how to use them properly, can mess something up. Plus it always phones home, and tries to get you to install their other software, is Smart Defrag from IOBIT: Best Free Disk Defrag Software - Smart Defrag by IObit
    If you choose this one, only simple defrag, and don't use advanced stuff, like boot defrag, moving certain files & folders to the beginning of the disk and such, just a good simple defrag is really all Windows needs.

    Cool. I'll probably check both out and see which I like more. I can handle IObit and I'm familiar enough with their stuff that I know how to navigate around their bloatware. I'm also savvy enough to root out and nuke adware and such if it does get in. I also know better than to mess with stuff that's above my pay grade so to speak in regard to advanced settings for something like that.
