    I used to defrag my hd's using win2k defrag And win98se defrag back in the bad days (pre XP) - never had a problem - so I can't see any problems with doing it with ME/XP

    I had major slowdowns defragging an OS partition within a different OS when dual booting. Also, I've had major problems with the Norton Systems works package. The Anti-Virus is great, but most of the other stuff "fixes" your system.:thumbs do
    Just my 2 cents.

    I have actually had a very different situation with Norton SystemWorks... I only ever use Norton Disk Doctor and Speed Disk, with no problems at all. I would be very happy to pay for a "cut-down" version of SystemWorks with only these two programs - the rest of the suite is :thumbs do IMHO.
    What came first - Insanity or Society?

    I dunno what to say since Norton utilities which includes DD & SD seems to cost more than system works whereever I look.

    I do like the fact that you can run SpeedDisk off the Norton utilities CD without installing Norton utilities.

    you can also boot off the CD to run Disk Doctor, Disk Edit, UnErase, & something else [WipeInfo maybe?]..

    I certainly wouldn't recommend it. Not because it won't work or will do any harm - it won't. But because XP actually puts the "holes" there for performance reasons. Also XP will put the files in certain order, which you won't get with the ME defragger.
