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?

"Best I have ever used!"

June 12, 2015  |  By RogerInferno

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 5.4.0

Pros

This is one of the best defrag programs that I have used, I don't like Smart Defrag because it actually messed with my laptop. Auslogics is just amazing, it greatly improved my startup. I hadn't defrag'd in ages, had over 50 percent! I recommend this to people out there that are looking for a defrag program that knows how to do the job right.

Cons

No cons at all

Summary

Best Defrag software hands down!
I agree with the previous review also because if you don't know how to actually take the time to go through the installation and do it yourself then good luck. Basically the express install is another word for "I am too dumb and lazy to go through install options, install for me".

"The most recent review is false!"

May 27, 2015  |  By Rioismycat

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 5.4.0

Pros

The most recent review click to agree to install spyware is nothing but 100% pure garbage!, as longs as you click advanced settings and uncheck the extras it will not install them!, there are idiots born every day!, next time take the time to do it right!

Cons

Idiots ruin great software ratings and reputations for everyone else to try!

Summary

This software is excellent!

Updated on May 27, 2015

No problems if you take the time to pay attention to details in advanced settings!

"Click install to agree to spyware installation"

April 12, 2015  |  By beanbones

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 5.4.0

Pros

There is no install button, only a close button.
Click close button so as not to install any spyware,
and spyware is INSTALLED.
Is Auslogics lying/tricking people into installing
spyware? I don't know. Are they? Does someone know if
they are?

Cons

There is no install button, only a close button.
Click close button so as not to install any spyware,
and spyware is INSTALLED.
Is Auslogics lying/tricking people into installing
spyware? I don't know. Are they? Does someone know if
they are?

"Nice Tool!"

February 15, 2015  |  By cwoodard1

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 5.3

Pros

I've used this product for a few years and am satisfied with the free version. I will probably upgrade to the PRO version because I want the more robust freespace consolidation and defragmentation.

Cons

Would have been nice to have the pro features unlocked for a trial period. They are visible but disabled in the free version.
(btw - I had no problems with adware or malware. I guess that's because I followed the installation dialogue.)

Summary

I bounce back and forth between Auslogics and Raxco PerfectDisk - I consider them both excellent products!

"Been using for years, UNCHECK adware during install"

December 06, 2014  |  By Cyberbitz

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 5.1

Pros

FREE
it works
simple
no in your face advertisments

Cons

none that I can think of

Summary

I've been using this defragger for years, and have tried others but they always throw the upsells in your face in the interface

*** be sure to read the steps during install to avoid the adware from being installed. While installing 5.1.0.0 I noticed two attempts to install adware during the auslogic install process. All you have to to is read then uncheck the options to install anything else and you'll have no problems.

sometimes adware is hidden from default setup and you'll need to click advanced setup to see those options. but for legit software they usually always have the options not to install the additional software.

The people who give low ratings need to read what they are clicking 'next', 'agree', and 'accept' to.
