It is free. And I use other products of this.
I will not keep it for a long time I think.
Offers more features than previous versions, including ability to defrag SSD drives.
The latest version of this program is still very buggy and not ready for prime time. Some features do not work, such as the "quick defrag" option.
Scanning hard disks is now agonizingly slow... before this "upgrade" a basic scan and defrag of all my drives could be accomplished in as little as 1:30 minutes, and this is on a system with 24 TB storage. Now to do a full scan on all drives will take more than 30 min, and that is with minimal fragmentation. Part of the problem is that while the previous version could do multiple disks at the same time, it seems the latest version scans and defrags the disks in series.
An even more bothersome aspect is that now Auslogics attempts to bundle BoostSpeed in with the defrag. Of course the program itself is useless unless you pay, attempts to scare the user into thinking there is something seriously wrong with their machine, and of course uses intrusive pop-ups in the process. VERY unethical for a company that claims to be on the level.
Would avoid the current version (7.0) at all costs... either wait to see if Auslogics will bother to fix this mess with the next update, or roll back to an earlier version.
This really is a shame, and a perfect example of what happens when the manufacturer of a good product gets greedy. I've been recommending Disk Defrag for years to friends and clients, but until this product is properly fixed and debugged, I can no longer recommend this product in good conscience.
The Disk Defrag works well on my SSD, even allowing me to do a one-time actual defragment before the SSD TRIM, which Smart Defrag would not allow.
I usually watch closely for stowaway installs, but BoostSpeed got by me.
I installed Auslogics Disk Defrag BASED UPON THE DOWNLOAD.CNET.COM Editor's rating of 4 1/2 stars along with the users' rating of 4 1/2 stars.
BIIIIGGGGG Mistake. I should have researched elsewhere.
Unknown to me, Auslogics Disk Defrag also installed Auslogics BoostSpeed, which I did not need and do not want. When I saw that BoostSpeed had installed, I ran it.
SECOND BIIIGGGGG Mistake. I should have known that a stowaway program, which installed without asking me first, could not be a good thing.
BoostSpeed did little or nothing, so I attempted to exit the program. But it insisted on offering me the paid version for $19.99, and IT WOULD NOT EXIT WITHOUT MY PURCHASING IT. This stowaware had just become RANSOMWARE.
THIRD BIIIIGGGG MISTAKE... No, I did not bite.
Windows 8.1 Task Manager closed the program.
Now the BoostSpeed stowaware/ransomware WILL NOT INSTALL, AND ITS FILES CANNOT BE DELETED.
AVOID AUSLOGICS. EVEN A GOOD PROGRAM LIKE DISK DEFRAG CAN BE USED TO TRAP YOU INTO PAYING A $20 RANSOM FOR SOMETHING ELSE YOU DIDN'T WANT. AUSLOGICS MAY HAVE BEEN A STRAIGHT UP COMPANY UNTIL RECENTLY, BUT IT APPARENTLY HAS BEEN SWALLOWED UP BY CORPORATE CARNIVORES WITH SUBSTANDARD BUSINESS ETHICS.
S - T - A - Y A - W - A - Y !
I ran this program and a lot of my files were deleted. Tons of old photos, work related documents, resume, etc. were gone. I did a search on my computer and these files were not moved to a new location nor were they in the Recycle Bin. They are just gone. Worst part is, I don't think the computer became any faster.
Has this happened to anyone else? What can I do to recover my lost files?
Perhaps this is one of the best freebie I've ever seen. Moreover, this program very useful. If you ever did a defragmentation, you will realize that it is a very useful program.
I did not find cons
Very easy to use. It is like a magic wand, each wizard has to have it)
This is a free program! Do you understand? FREE! I'm shocked! Really, it's the best program for improve PC's performance by defragmenting and re-arranging files on disk. And for free. Thanks Auslogics, it's a really cool. Thanks!
I didn't find
P.S I'm also using your product BoostSpeed. Very useful program.
Quickly defrags disk
Created over 54,000 html and xml "log files" taking up over 46 GB of my harddrive!
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.
Very fast, defrags multiple drives at once, fully defrags drives
Adware is getting a little intrusive.
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.
Increased overall performance, and Very Fast!
You can check system for errors Before defrag, without running chkdsk (no reboot)!
Tech support won't reply to email inquiries about boot (offline) defrag..., and user manual hasn't been updated to show boot defrag!???
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!

I forgot to mention about!-
1. To keep from getting PUP's on install!- Choose Custom, untick,,,, and then Decline the add-on!
2. I selected to consolidate/move System files to front of HD, and use Layout.ini in Settings. Be sure and Run as Admin, on All, but getting it Trusted by your AV!
3. Defrag doesn't take effect, until After the next Cold startup (all Defrags)/3 reboots.
a. Your AV may require you to Open AUS after 20min on the 2nd startup to get it Trusted (same with All defrags
really fast with decent features and FREE
ads but acceptable
