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.

"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.

"Not the best"

January 12, 2013  |  By Mathinker

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 3.6

Pros

Does a good job of the basic defrag.

Cons

Optimisation really lets this program down, leaves files scattered across slower parts of the drive.
The reporting display could be better, apparently empty blocks actually contain files.

Summary

Look elsewhere.

"Better than Windows defrag"

December 29, 2012  |  By Herk11

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 3.6

Pros

Very fast & does multiple drives at once... a feature as I have a lot of drives... you can 'peek' at what you're defragging or just do select folders and/or optimize the drive... all things windows doesn't do.. oh 7 its free....

Cons

Not sure of the accuracy of the graph, but the drive seems to fragment quickly...

Summary

Very good for a 'free' program...

"It does all the usual things very quickly and easily"

December 24, 2012  |  By gerry_lane

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 3.6

Pros

The simplicity of the conventional interface means the least savvy user shoild have no problems using the application,

Cons

In terms of comparative efficiencey, it falls a little short of a main competitor.

To carry out a basic, essential maintenance operation, this is up to the job for all but the most finicky users - however, some users will want a little more.

"Works way better than windows standard defrag tool."

December 24, 2012  |  By Jexthoth

 |  Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 3.6

Pros

Makes use of the windows defrag tool, yet adds it`s own enhancing features to optimize and ensure faster input and output of files by moving them to the faster part of the drive. Really increased my computer`s performance even when defraggler said it was 30 percent fragmented.

Cons

doesn`t automatically clean temp files before defragging, but other than that a good program.

Summary

Very useful!
