Dnetc will still have to access the memory frequently, and so does defrag.
I'm afraid there isn't much dnetc can do to stop Windows from swapping,
unless you have a real lot of memory for Windows to waste. I have seen
machines which had so little memory that defrag would never get past 10%
because it always had to swap. Fortunately Norton SpeedDisk exists.
