    "Great FREE Program. Recommend to all."

    February 3, 2012  |   By Red_Kangaroo


    Free Free Free
    Quick performer.
    Low overhead.

    As a computer tech I have used many of these programs over the years and would have to say this is the best free one. I have even removed my commercial PD12 which has become so complex in recent upgrades that it hogs the computer.

    Uses newer concept of placing most used files at the start of the drive to minimize drive wear.

    Why would you bother with the FREE??? one that is shipped with Win-doze when this free one is so superior.


    Does not do a complete defrag.

    Placing most-used files at the start leads to more fragmentation for files that are edited as they do not have room to expand. Some defraggers used to be programmable to leave a space between the two sections to allow for this. However this one usually leaves random spaces that allow for this expansion. So not a big problem.


    Go for it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
