VOPT 9 Review- Its NEW Again!

Best Defragmentation Tool - Rated Five SURFERS

by George Margolin, Editor,

VOPT 9 - NEWEST version-  for Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, and Windows 7

A new version of VOPT from Golden Bow systems is now out! Vopt 9 now works with Windows XP, Vista, and Windows 7 (even the 64 bit version!). VOPT by Golden Bow Software is one of the fastest defragmentation programs on the market. Both George and I have been using it for over 9 years and it has not crashed a system!

Vopt 9 will also help with some system tools such as System Information, Configuration and even a Tuneup:

As they say, time is money, and VOPT saves lots of time and helps prevent defragmentation problems with your hard disk. The current thinking is to defragment your hard disk at least weekly.

The current version, VOPT costs $40. (also at

There is a free 30 day trial, downloadable from the web site (,

so you can see how fast and safe it is for you.
