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.

It does what it says on the box

No system interference, and it works perfectly. As advertised.

"Fragalicious!"

September 01, 2009  |  By northreb

 |  Version: Ashampoo Magical Defrag 2.34

Pros

Or not, works great defragging, but has a little trouble knowing when to start up. I solved that by logging as far as the user screen, then waiting for the HD light to stop blinking. Voila! Totally defragged.

Cons

Just the program running problem. (see above for work-around)

Summary

Ashampoo knows its stuff. Period!

August 05, 2009  |  By whoozhe

 |  Version: Ashampoo Magical Defrag 2.34

Pros

Does the job efficiently and quietly. It does everything required to help a hard drive running at it's peak

Cons

haven't found any yet.

Summary

This is a well made tool and makes a far better choice that using Windows built in defragger.
It works in the background with no apparent affect on the system's performance.
Has muliti-user support.
Pauses defragmentation automatically when the system is in use.
Has support for compressed files.
Monitor function for statistics.
Can be controlled and monitored via a local network
Will continue defragging even when no user is logged on.
Like all Ashampoo products the application can be tried for 30 days and the support is the best.
