Editors' Review

Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro aspires to replace the basic Windows defragmenter, offering useful features like Disk Zone and Free Zone optimizations. It has a very informative interface with all the options you need and includes statistics, reports, and scheduling, but it isn't the fastest of utilities.

Pros

Very customizable: Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro does not only standard defrag operations, but also lets you choose from different types of advanced defragmentation, use task scheduling, and check before and after results. It can handle SSD drives, as well.

Disk Zone and Free Zone optimization modes: Of all the available defrag modes, we liked these two the most, because they bring good improvements to slow and small drives typically found in laptops. Free Zone optimization released 3GB in a 90 percent full 2.5-inch 250GB disc, while Disk Zone optimization enhanced speed by cleverly positioning the more frequently used data in the faster disk surface areas.

Cons

Defrag times: While analysis takes only a few minutes and basic defrags allow you to run other apps without significant lag, more advanced defrag operations can last between four and seven hours. What's more, for the free space optimization, our computer had to be restarted for the defrag to take place before Windows loaded.

Bottom Line

The well-featured Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro satisfies high defrag requirements, an improvement over the default Windows defragmentation app. Large 3.5-inch drives hardly need it, though, and will be fine with the default Windows utility. However, if you own smaller capacity 5400 RPM drives, then the $29.95 price tag makes sense.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro 4.3.8.

Pros

Older versions were good

Cons

I cannot install this new 4.3.8.0 version.

"Still a great professional defragger"

February 04, 2014  |  By tjazzzzz

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro 4.3.6

Pros

Tons & tons of options for those who love tweaking their computers

Cons

none for me

Summary

I have had to contact Auslogics regarding a different product (one of their free ones actually) and they were prompt and helpful in their response. Seems like the previous reviewer is talking about a different company than the one I dealt with. I have written them both via email and through their facebook page and they replied both ways. Never a problem with any of my licenses (and I've bought quite a number from this company over the years). Auslogics has earned my personal trust and support.

"Its The Company"

January 31, 2014  |  By BearPuppy

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro 4.3.6

Pros

Make no mistake, the product itself is fine, and I've used it for many years.

Cons

The problem, and the reason for the 1 star rating, is the company. For years when you purchased a license it was for a lifetime; now they've switched to a 1-year license model. OK, fine, a 'too bad' decision, but one they're entitled to make.

What isn't OK is their unwillingness to honor a 1 year license, which I entered on October of 2013. By their own terms this should enable me to have updates until October 2014 (9 months from when I'm writing this review). They haven't even acknowledge the polite email I sent asking them to honor their own license.

Summary

The attitude embodied by Auslogic's unwillingness to honor their own license terms is something I'm unwilling to partake in. I now use Wise Disk Defrag in their free tool Wise Disk Cleaner. So far I've found it a speedy and quite usable product. Goodbye Auslogic, I don't do business with crooks.

"Another great program from Auslogics"

January 19, 2014  |  By Tom-o-Hawk

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro 4.0.1.50

Pros

I actually won a license to this program and only have it on one of my computers, but it's the same as a paid version and it works just as great. The number of features included is really impressive. Defrags system files on bootup.

Cons

Its extensive functionality can be a con, especially for novice users who may not know the terms used or what each feature is good for. Auslogics tries to provide explanations in the program, but since space is limited, it will still take you time to get the hang of this program.

Summary

A perfect tool for professionals or amateurs who like tinkering with their PCs.

"Seems fine."

February 17, 2013  |  By westendal

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro 4.2.2

Pros

Works OK as straight-forward defragmenter, and provides lots of statistics, some of which are actually understandable.

Cons

Can't quite figure out everything else it claims it can do.

Summary

Worth the price if you want a change of pace, and look, from Microsoft and Norton.

"Fast & Simple."

October 21, 2012  |  By BearPuppy

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro 4.0.1.50

Pros

Its easy to use, but its best feature is its speed. Defragging takes only a few minutes on a 1/2 Terabyte Drive.

Cons

The interface is a bit cluttered and needs to be cleaned up by Auslogics.

Summary

The best I've used yet. Makes defragging worthwhile.
