OneCare Defrag & Vista Defrag RRS feed

  • Question

  • 'Ello,

    I was just wondering recently does OneCare and Windows Vista use the same defragmenter?  The reason I ask is because I have the built in defrag for Windows Vista set to run but I also have the Tune-up in OneCare turned on which also does a defrag, so I was thinking that if they use different defrag 'engines' (not sure if that's the correct term) when Tune-up runs it will defrag as it thinks is best then when the Windows Vista one defrags a few days later it will then move it all around again to how it thinks best.

    I hope that made sense please let me know if it didn't.

    Thank you in advance, El Barto.

  • Same engine. OneCare executes it in a "brute force" method - run without analyzing, but it is the same Defrag.
