Defraggler

CNET Editors' review

The Defraggler helps computer users who feel their system is running too slow. This simple program performs a complicated task that streamlines your PC's thought processes, but be prepared for a wait.

This free unlimited download attempts to bring order to your scattered RAM. When a file is created, portions of the item are spread into free spaces throughout the hard drive. As more files accumulate the computer has to work harder to piece together the puzzle that has become your specific file. This results in a slow computer. Defragmenting seeks out all these matching pieces and lines them up, making work easier and faster for the computer.

Defraggler downloads easily and is simple to understand. Its display shows users how much memory is available on their computers and also performs a search to show exactly how many files are fragmented in the entire computer. From here you can choose to defragment all or select specific files for defragmentation. Experts recommend regular defragmentation to keep computers running smoothly, so the Defraggler offers a scheduler to automatically run the program.

Defraggler is easy to understand and performs its job well. There is a strange chart along the top that seems to move for no real reason and is best ignored, but is only a minor annoyance. In addition, be prepared for a long wait time. Defragmenting a computer can take dozens of minutes. Still, if you want to improve computer performance, this is a great place to start.

    "Best Free Defrag I have ever used"

    November 9, 2010  |   By asuderma

    Version: Defraggler 1.21.209

    Pros

    Easy and quick download. Defragging doesn't kill the pc for hours like the Windows Utility. Does a decent defrag job, and gives visual representation, which Windows didn't feel was necessary anymore.

    Cons

    Doesn't offer the options of professional defrag, but for a free software, works very well.

    "Small, compact and easy to use software."

    October 31, 2010  |   By cjcotterill

    Version: Defraggler 1.21.209

    Pros

    This program is a great replacement for the windows XP defrag problem which is worse then useless. Pretty much automatic defrag with scheduler and some advanced user options

    Cons

    Useless on windows Vista or 7 as the Windows defrag program is greatly improved from that of xp. Also the Yahoo toolbar that it tries to install is more useless then the XP defrag program.

    Summary

    A great little piece of software for defragging your computer and maximizing PC performance if you have a Windows XP. But on the latest operating systems is redundant and usually makes things worse as the defrag program that comes with Windows is up to scratch unlike XP.

    "Im Confused!!"

    October 3, 2010  |   By nrgshkl093

    Version: Defraggler 1.21.209

    Pros

    great ui file defreag,freespace defrag,user friendly etc etc

    Cons

    i dont trust it ..highly confusing results and statistics

    Summary

    before i started the defrag i had 264 gb left on my drive during the defrag the numbers fluctuated and i had 230 gigs left near the end at 90% progress and 220 gigs left after the derfrag was over ***? i ran disk check and it came back to260 something gb left
    after this i ran "freespace defrag" and now i have 309 gb remaining [free] on my hard drive---next morning after a whole night of defragmentation i analyzed my drive again and i had 44% fragmentatio[red].......windows disk error checking and its own says that your drives are normally running ..no errors were found! now whats the meaning of this? what has this thing been doing with my hard drive? im sure somethings really wrong[ not with my drives but the software obviously]

    "Excellent options and works well"

    September 20, 2010  |   By andrewgould

    Version: Defraggler 1.21.209

    Pros

    With external drives containing thousands of photo files, etc, I really like how it's possible to select only specific folders to defragment.

    Cons

    No problems at all so far.

    Summary

    Excellent freeware program from the equally excellent CCleaner. Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems to me that those who've said they find Defraggler slow, are just not taking into account the fact that defragmenting means that the program concerned may have to work through a mountain of data if you have badly fragmented drive, and there's just no way round this -- except to do it often.

    "Highly Effective Program!"

    September 7, 2010  |   By griffinwebnet

    Version: Defraggler 1.21.209

    Pros

    Very In-Depth. Also The GUI allows you to select certain "Blocks" and see which files (Or File Fragments) Are contained in each sector of the drive. Very Useful If you use it for some of the more advanced things like in-depth analysis of the drive

    Cons

    VERY slow, However Is A Disk DeFrager EVER "fast".

    Summary

    Well Rounded Program. Allows For Ease of use for the novice user and some more advanced functions for technicians and advanced users. also the display of "read" "written" "Fragmented", etc with the included KEY (its in the "Help" menu) allows you to be, if nothing else, entertained by the defrag while you wait. Overall it is a program that i would highly recommend!
