    "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.

    "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.

    "Last 2 versions didn't consolidate free space, and...!?"

    June 18, 2014  |   By scottls59901

    Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 4.5.5

    Pros

    It's Very Fast, and free.

    Seems to improve performance.

    I've tried Many free/paid defrags, but this is the only one that increased performance.

    Cons

    I Run as Admin after 2 no-activity restarts (then wait 30min for HD to settle down...), move system files to a faster part of the HD, but after restart there are always large areas of free space not consolidated?

    If I use their delete Junk files option..., performance decreased.

    My AV didn't like the harmless PUP AD, in their latest version.

    Summary

    Old version has to be uninstalled first, or installer will offer to uninstall then (I had to temp disable my AV until after restart).

    I submitted a detailed trouble report to Auslogics Tech Support, but no reply as yet?

    I tried their Pro version, with it's umpteen defrag choices (Very Confusing!), but it's always running... slowed my computer (their tech support couldn't help?).

    Updated on Jul 3, 2014

    On my 1st AV scan the download was deleted, because of the non-malicious PUP.

    "Seems best"

    June 16, 2014  |   By Scree

    Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 4.5.5

    Pros

    Pretty well designed and does the job well.

    Cons

    Last update sneakily added a one-time scheduled task AD display!

    Summary

    This still seems to be the best of the free defraggers around today, but they are starting to get shady with pushing ads. Oh the tradeoff of being free...

    April 14, 2014  |   By hamed_206

    Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 4.5.2

    Pros

    Better than Smart Defrag from Iobit! De fragmented all my files in drive "C" in a very little time!

    Cons

    Smart Defrag failed to defrag all my hard disk files. Auslogics done the job fast, reliable and much better!

    "Good software....."

    April 12, 2014  |   By melen001

    Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 4.5.3

    Pros

    Easy to use, different options available, fast.... optimizes your drive......

    Cons

    It really doesn't speed up boot time.....

    Summary

    It is a good piece of software but I have not experimented any boost speed in my boot time . While using MyDefrag or Puran Defrag my boot time has gone down between 8 to 11 seconds, MyDefrag 11 seconds and Puran Defrag 8 seconds. Still some will argue about benefiting from a better boot time but in my case I have lowered my boot time but not with Auslogics Disk Defrag.

    "Outstanding Software"

    April 2, 2014  |   By Yelper

    Version: Auslogics Disk Defrag 4.5.2

    Pros

    Easy to Install, Easy to Use, Free Software

    Cons

    No Complains...none so far

    Summary

    by the way, I just installed it just right now and used it and it's amazing, Also, there is no CONDUIT MALWARE included 100% verified. However, just beware and uncheck the last part of installation where it says "my backup" but overall I am very pleased with this software, worked like a gem.
