Editors' Review

Instead of having to remember to defrag disks, Ashampoo Magical Defrag will keep up with the task with little intervention on your part. It may not be magical, but it is a practical approach to a job that needs to get done but often gets forgotten.

The user interface is pretty basic, but the straightforward design makes it easy to navigate. Settings options allow you select the hard disk(s) that you want to include in the defragmenting process. Once you click the Defragment Now button, setup is pretty much finished. Ashampoo Magical Defrag goes to work when your computer is idle. You can pause the program, but otherwise you don't need to do anything. If you're really interested, the defragment screen visually displays the process. Tiny, color-coded square symbols show you the amount of free space on your hard disk. You can also opt to show weekly statistics, display the taskbar icon, and to cease running the program while in battery mode. A statistics summary tells you how many files were defragmented and how many clusters of files were moved, so you can keep tabs on what's going on behind the scenes.

An extensive Help file will answer questions you might have along the way. The program comes with a very generous, 40-day trial period. It doesn't get much easier to keep your disks defragmented, and we recommend Ashampoo Magical Defrag for all users.

"Best Hard Drive Defrag Program Out There !!!!!!!"

March 31, 2012  |  By rzimmer1

 |  Version: Ashampoo Magical Defrag 3.0.2

Pros

very clean looking, easy to use, really works in the background when your processor is not busy working on something else, i been a ashampoo customer since the day the company started and i totally trust their quality software to do what they say it does, they get better every year and really do offer a quality product at a great price.

Cons

really nothinf bad to say except i would like to be able to change the size of the window or make it full screen if i wanted to do so. this would make it easier for people who are s little hard of seeing to make it sa they can really see what is going on much better. other than that everything else is fine. maybe they could add this option soon for us older people who have a slight vision problem.

Summary

over all it is the best program of its kind and really does not slow your computer down like so many others do. so ashampoo gets a A++ in my book for this awesome program that keeps your hard drive in tune without you even knowing it is doing its job. well done ashampoo well done. all your software that you make always keeps me happy and makes me feel safe knowing your there doing a great job with all your quality software. keep up the great work as you will always be one of the best in my book and you never let me down over all these many many years. randolph zimmer

"Not as complicated as it first looks"

January 08, 2012  |  By diagrit

 |  Version: Ashampoo Magical Defrag 3.0.2

Pros

Will save those factory default renstalls when you can't uninstall something annoying.

Cons

Help screens, unable to maximise, bit small to read.

Summary

Like most Ashampoo software it's simple to install and use, does the job for a great price. Didn't read and notice that it has a disk defrag and registary cleaner which I brought as seperate items at the same time, still they were on offer at only £3 each and this program was up for £12 so still got away with it cheap. Like most things German it's precise, well made and functional. It's still my hope that one day they will produce a full fledged video editing package.

"Keeps disk defragged without slowing PC"

September 03, 2011  |  By joemac

 |  Version: Ashampoo Magical Defrag 3.0.2

Pros

Program works in background and pauses when the CPU is active, so it doesn't interrupt or slow PC. HD stays degragmented. I periodically run a separate defrag program and it finds almost no fragmentation to slow down my PC.

Cons

None - works right all the time!

Summary

Beats any other defrag program for keeping things clean without user input. Great if you are tech support for friends and family (that is- uncompensated).
