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?

"Thought It Was Good Till..."

January 05, 2016  |  By gtshadow

2016-01-05 09:44:37  |  By gtshadow

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 6.1.2

Pros

Quickly defrags disk

Cons

Created over 54,000 html and xml "log files" taking up over 46 GB of my harddrive!

Summary

I have used this program for at least a cople of years. Thought it was great. Kept my disks defraged with little effort. But my sytem has been bogged down for awhile. I am busy and it took a long while before I had time tolook into it. The first thing I noticed, was that something was taking up a huge chunk of my hard drive. I looked at all my folders and all my videos pics and music only accounted for about half of what was used up on the drive. I got a copy of WinDirStat (great program for finding what is taking up space on your disk, even in hidden folders.) and found that, for some reason, this program had created over 54,000 html and xml files in the AppData/Roaming folder for this program. All the files were named something like "llog file" or "print file" as far as I could tell. To be honest, when I saw all this, I wasn't paying a lot of attention to what was there, I was just wanting to get it off my computer. So I unistalled the progeam, but still had to manually dispose of that Roaming folder with all those files in it. After rebooting, I noticed my system has speeded up enormously. Wonder why?? I don't know if this was a glitch in the Disk Defrag program or a virus or what it was, but I just can't see using a product that does what this one has. Too bad.

"Awesome program, beware of the adware"

December 14, 2015  |  By jandsm5321

2015-12-14 06:09:22  |  By jandsm5321

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 6.1.2

Pros

Very fast, defrags multiple drives at once, fully defrags drives

Cons

Adware is getting a little intrusive.

Summary

When installing, choose custom install if you want to avoid installing their Speed Boost program. Then they try to sneak in Ad Aware Web Companion and make it look like a license agreement.

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 6.0.2

Pros

Increased overall performance, and Very Fast!
You can check system for errors Before defrag, without running chkdsk (no reboot)!

Cons

Tech support won't reply to email inquiries about boot (offline) defrag..., and user manual hasn't been updated to show boot defrag!???

Summary

I have tried most all free/paid defrags..., and this is the Best!-
MyDefraq came in 2nd, but Very Slow (17-45min), and Less Performance!

"Best I have ever used!"

June 12, 2015  |  By RogerInferno

2015-06-12 04:17:39  |  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".

 |  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"

 |  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,

"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!
