Editors' Review

Auslogics Disk Defrag is an upgrade from the built-in Windows disk defragmenter. Free, fast, and thorough, it can defrag whole disks or individual files and folders, on schedule or on demand. You can exclude files and folders from defragging, set defragmentation priority, and analyze and optimize disks as well as defragging them. Auslogics Disk Defrag not only excludes SSDs from defragmenting but helps optimize them, too.

Pros

Cluster Map: A disk defragger with no cluster map is no fun, as Microsoft learned. Auslogics Disk Defrag not only has a cluster map but also two map styles and a menu full of color themes. Clicking Show Speed Map on the View menu displays Fast and Slow disk access zones.

Algorithms: The Program Settings offers optional algorithms that can delete temporary files before defragmenting, skip files of a certain size, and perform other operations.

SSD Optimization: SSDs shouldn't be defragged, but Windows can be optimized to take full advantage of their speed. Auslogics Disk Defrag analyzes your SSDs and system and optimizes both.

Cons

Sales pitch: Places like the Advanced menu and System Health tab offer additional software -- a minor matter, considering what you're getting for free, but it bothers some folks.

Bottom Line

Far from obsolete, disk defragmentation utilities may be more important than ever as disk drives climb to multi-terabyte capacity. That's especially true when a defragger not only recognizes and excludes SSDs from defragmentation but also helps optimize their performance. So why use the Windows defragger when Auslogics Disk Defrag is better?

"WAS the best, now loaded with Malware, avoid!"

January 06, 2017  |  By torontomikey

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 7.1

Pros

WAS the best, now terrible!

Cons

So sad, I've used this defrag software for years, and now I've tried the latest version 3 times on 3 pc's and in ALL instances, it hijacked my chrome and I had 63 malware items found when I ran Malwarebytes. I guess I will have to find a new defrag program, goodbye Auslogics, you just lost a long time supporter.

Summary

Was the best, now the worst, installs ad/malware, why they did this I do not know, if anyone has any recommendations for another defrag program let me know, thanks!

"PUPs, Junk, and doesn't work"

January 01, 2017  |  By Eight character user

2017-01-01 09:38:42  |  By Eight character user

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 7.1

Pros

None. This used to be a decent program, but not anymore.

Cons

- Installed unwanted programs
- Only defragged 58% of drive. Had to run another defragger behind it.
- Left behind junk registry keys and folders on uninstall

Summary

I do not recommend this program, or company, at all.

"Was good, now iffy"

December 23, 2016  |  By Markott8

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 7.1

Pros

Small, fast defragmenter. Relatively effective for me for several years.

Cons

Lately (as of Dec. 2016) has installed two other apps without any warning or chance to decline. They are an optimizer/malware finder/junk file deleter AND a driver updater. Malwarebytes now labels ALL three of these apps as PUPs, which it never did before. I finally uninstalled them all.

Summary

Good, basic defragmenter which has suddenly began installing other unwanted apps.
