There is a new freeware source I am just looking at:
It is an Australian software house (Sydney, NSW). At the moment you can get a HDD defragmenter, a Registry Defragmenter and a Systems Information analysis tool (for FREE).
I have loaded them onto:
1Gb PC 2700 DDR
Win 2000 SP4
No problems with installation, and the GUI looks very pretty The defragmenter seems to run a bit faster than my usual Diskeeper lite.
When you look at the Systems Information tool, the "General Information" option only tells you what it does............ you need to use the left hand option bar to run the tests.
And the defragmenter tells me that as Administrator, I do not have sufficient authority to defragment my F:\ drive. Strictly speaking, that is true.............. I would need "Root"
It tells you the serial numbers, product codes and registration keys of stuff you have installed, quite a nice presentation by comparison to other free tools that I use.
All in all I would say they were worth a look and a play.
I don't work for the outfit, in fact I only stumbled across them by accident whilst I was researching free defragmenters

Just finished running both of them on a spare box, they seem to do a nice of enough job.
Noticed that the disc defragmenter didn't suck up much system resources while running, wich is a nice thing to see.

Well I was actually going to defrag my laptop this week so I am currently testing this on one of my spares - will post when I have finished.
