    "Been using for years, UNCHECK adware during install"

    December 6, 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 2, 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.
