  1. Defraggler had supported Windows 2000 in the past so it seems hard to believe that there is now a compatibility issue using the defragging API.


    It seems more likely to be problem with an add-on library used for Defraggler which doesn't support Windows 2000.

    Until one of the coders would care to speak up it's still unclear whether dropping Windows 2000 was intentional or not.

    I think dropping windows 2000 IS INTENTIONAL.

    A lot of defragmenters with boot time defrag still work on w2k(Raxco PerfectDisk, Ultradefrag, o&o).

    They must use the new VisualStudio wich actually drop w2k support.


    @ Nergal

    Win2K is an insecure OS and really should not be used any more. Most software has dropped support for it (Zone Alarm sticks in my mind)

    Please speak for yourself.

    Personally I consider w2k more mature, less resources hungry and bundled with less garbages than XP, Vista or 7.

    Just the stuff you need to work with some garbage around.

  2. I have been informed that The Docs page will be updated to reflect the change in system requirements. I apologize if it caused anyone to be misled


    How big can be the differences between Windows 2000 and XP?

    Basically the defragmentation API wich Defraggler uses is the same(or backward compatible)


    Why to drop this very robust OS wich is w2k?


    I am sure this can be done with a minimum efort if The Team really want this.


    There are still others programs to defrag a drive wich don't force you to change your OS to use the newest version.


    Sounds like MirkoSloft has inspired most of the programmers to force upgrading, why not to Vista or 7.


    Hope this don't apply HERE, so please, TEAM, don't drop w2k, it is still used by 'some guys' and does well his job.

  3. Got the 2.0 today and not working on my w2k machine.

    I know MicroS... dropped w2k but this is not a reason for the NON-microsoft developers to drop support for it in their applications.


    For the w2k lovers, please keep support for this stable OS! Should be not so difficult.


    Please !
