if you run windows defrag twice it should move everything to the front.

edit: ^^no

There are three choices -- O&O Defrag, Diskkeeper, and PerfectDisk. I think they all do what you want in terms of placement. I can vouch for DK and PD, currently using PD. Never used O&O but people swear by it.

Windows built-in defrag has always lack in performance. It takes like 3 hours to defrag a hard drive.

I highly recommend diskeeper. I just updated to diskeeper 9 and the performance is much faster than Windows defrag. I can defrag a NTFS drive under 10 minutes or less.

I would like to put one advisor with using Diskeeper and Windows XP.

If any of your drives are FAT32 and you are using Windows XP, I find that the defrag performance is worse under Diskeeper. It takes longer to defrag a FAT32 drive under Windows XP using Diskeeper.

The developers admit this is an known flaw with the program.
