Editors' Review

+

Defragging your hard drive is an important part of system maintenance; regular defragging can improve performance by making sure that all the parts of each file are stored together, which makes it faster to access them. Auslogics Disk Defrag is a simple way to take care of this task. With a straightforward interface and a few useful extras, Auslogics Disk Defrag is a great choice for users of all skill levels.

The program's interface is plain and intuitive, featuring the classic cluster map that displays fragmented, unfragmented, and empty space. Auslogics Disk Defrag took 14 seconds to run a scan of our hard drive and determine that it was 17 percent fragmented. We clicked the defrag button and waited 10 minutes for the program to do its thing. In the time it took us to go make a snack, Auslogics Disk Defrag had tidied up our hard drive. We double-checked its work by running the built-in Windows Disk Defragmenter, and it confirmed that our disk was now 0 percent fragmented.

The program is easy enough for just about anyone to use, but it also has a few advanced features, such as options to schedule automatic defrags and defrag individual folders, that will be attractive to more advanced users. There's a well-written PDF user manual available on Auslogic's Web site, but most people won't need it. Overall, we found Auslogics Disk Defrag to be a simple, powerful tool, and we recommend it.

"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.

"Fast but Risky with Data..."

September 30, 2014  |  By Hawaiitech

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 4.5.5

Pros

Works fast at defragging windows computers. Can improve boot and system performance from 10-35% from my experiences. free. Can defrag a system in a hurry.

Cons

Sometimes causes system corruption to where windows wont boot up normally into desktop. I work at a computer repair shop and have stopped using disk defrag because it just simply isn't worth the risk. Yesterday I cloned a hard drive and the cloned drive worked flawlessly, then I defragged the cloned drive with Disk Defrag and it booted to a black screen. A few weeks ago after a virus and system cleanup on a machine that booted fine I used disk defrag to polish the machine up and it booted to a black screen; using task manager and open: explorer.exe would work intermittently. I had to reinstall the OS.... Another case was a clients computer that was slow and needed cleanup. The drive was older but reported good health, so I ran Disk Defrag after cleanup and it made certain programs not function correctly. Not trying to bad mouth Auslogics but DD can cause system instability. Does DD consolidate data in a way that it loses data? RISKY

Summary

Some drives it works great, impressive speed can equal impressive results. Some drives it causes system crashes, instability, corruption, data loss etc. Probably wont use this program on clients computers anymore, but will continue to use it personally.

Updated on Sep 30, 2014

P.S. Does Disk Defrag see bad sectors on hard drives? And does it allocate data to bad sectors? The problems I experienced happened after using both Defrag and Defrag+Optimization settings on different computers.

"Does not coalesce free space"

September 02, 2014  |  By ChrisAllen CNET

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 4.5.5

Pros

Defrags all files except a dozen mysterious "unmovable" small files. oooWOOooo Gives option to move files into "fast" region near front of disk.

Cons

Does not coalesce free space. So it isn't a complete defrag.

"BEWARE! Hidden automatic credit charges."

July 10, 2014  |  By ultrasonic9999

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 3.6

Pros

Works well, provides detailed information on each drive and gives a visual indication of the status of each drives fragmentation (including SSD).

Cons

Price! It's a ripoff. $30 a year to have a defrag program? Seriously? I spend that on my trailer insurance a year. It's very misleading when you purchase it that you don't get to keep it like any normal program, I understand you may not get updates unless you pay again but to time-limit the whole program!? NOWHERE on the products page does it state that your license will expire or your paying a licensing fee. Only in the fine print when you purchase it you see an 'expiration date' how convenient. BEWARE - THEY WILL AUTOMATICALLY CHARGE YOU AFTER A YEAR, AGAIN AND AGAIN! Highly misleading when initially purchasing! These types of companies prey on people by having a nice little 'we will automatically charge your card after 1 year..' after you freaking buy it you find this out. It was nice and hidden during the whole purchasing process. They run their business like a 'adult' site, literally making you jump through hoops when you find out the hidden automatic charges.

Summary

The software was nice, finding the hidden fee's & yearly charges after buying it pissed me off enough to never recommend this company to anyone. Do not buy their garbage if they can't be honest about the price up font. One way to rub a customer the wrong way is to charge their credit card after the fact without their knowledge. Thats stealing. And having the automatic charge after 1 year in SMALL fine print and conveniently pre-checked so people are authorizing this without realizing it is a shady business practice preying on the fact people wont notice the charge. Wow - that's shady. Dont buy software from this company. Thats my opinion.
