I need a new PC for that. I have a 750GB SATA Samsung that my comp won't recognize for some reason... but pop it in an external enclosure and boom! Just fine. So, thats a plus. However, I just had to send it to Seattle to help my buddy recover some lost data (movies, tv shows, etc) and so while it has a backup of about 500GB of my data, Im not willing to take all of that off my internal drives yet.

Im seriously tempted to just buy a couple PATA drives to tide me over, since my 2 PATAs are 400GB and 200GB and my 1 internal SATA is 500GB.

If I could get a 2nd SATA recognized at 500GB... and 2 PATA 750GBs... I'd be in great shape, and could easily turn this beast into a storage server sometime in the future.

Whats the difference between these listed defrags and Windows defrag?
I had a verizon defrag program in a package I got but it takes much longer than windows.

The listed defrags can either process the defrag faster than windows, as windows will drop the defrag down to ultra-low priority, or they can do more with the data than the windows one.

That, and windows is rubbish.
