I think it would be great if JkDefrag had a service mode that would constantly kept your drives defragmented.  Perhaps it could do this by detecting when the system is not busy, and could kick off, and begin to defrag all the local drives simultaneously.  If the system began to get busy it could back off, and allow the other processes to run.

Would be very useful for servers where high traffic times might vary.

From the frequently asked questions on the homepage, the "Can JkDefrag do continuous background defragmenting?" question: In my opinion continuous background defragmenting and optimization is marketing hype and a bad idea. There is considerable overhead (CPU, memory, disk) that may actually make your computer slower instead of faster, and it will wear out and shorten the life span of your harddisk. I advise defragmenting once a day (via the Windows Task Scheduler) at the most.
