    You can reinstall and do it again if it ever slows down. I have tried this to make sure it would work ok again and it does.


    And You cut 49 seconds off your boot??? Sweet!!!!

    I should add a poll to determine what people are cutting their time by on average (lol). This may be the best tweak i have ever found...through Trebuin of course.

    I use O&O Defrag for my Vista system regularly. If I use the TuneXP, will there be a conflict?
    I'm testing the TuneXP on an XP Pro system which also has O&O defrag installed. I'll see how it works, but I wonder if anyone else has tried using both TuneXP and O&O Defrag at the same time on Vista.

    My drive is the SSD drive which defrags just as any other.

    Also I dont think there would be any conflicts between the two... A defrag is a defrag. The TuneXP program id simply reordering your boot files to the front of the disk and then cleaning up the space with the defrag command.

    This post is flying!!!! Love It.

    Flamenko, is there a reason why you always ask for positive rep? It is against the rules.

    Nice thread nonetheless, I would rep you if I could.

    The thing is, the O&O method I use also reorder the files during defragmenting. So I wonder if it reorders the bootfiles within the C:/$Boot folder. According to O&O, my boot folder (C:/$Boot) is already at the front.

    Cant answer that and yes Lawlz...appreciate the rep as I enjoy helping here...no more no less.

    For the most part though, I wanna see the comments so the article can stay up top for awhile so everyone benefits.

    Program doesn't work with Vista x64. Keeps saying it can't find this and that to open. Oh well.
