Editors' Review

Glaryutilities' Disk SpeedUp is a free standalone utility that analyzes, defragments, and optimizes your disk drives or individual folders. It offers manual and automatic defrag options as well as automatic shutdown after defragmenting finishes.

Like many system utilities, Disk SpeedUp has a colorful interface with large, clearly labeled buttons and tabs labeled Defrag Show and Settings. The Defrag Show tab showed our two disk drives and their capacity, free space, status, and percentage of fragmentation. In the middle was a standard defrag map, while at the bottom of the interface, Disk SpeedUp displayed tabs with our three partitions, each with individual graphs and data. To the left, three prominent buttons let us choose Defrag Now, Auto Defrag, and Schedule options. We chose both hard disks and all three partitions. We could analyze, defrag, or optimize our selected disks or folders as well as pause or stop the operation.

Disk SpeedUp claims "smart" defragmentation methods that speed up and improve the process. We can't swear to their effectiveness other than to note that this tool is certainly fast. The color-coded defrag map gave us a good visual indication of the state of our disks. We could check for updates, but there's no Help file, though the developer's Web site offered some information. Under Settings, we could change the language, integrate the program with Windows startup and context menus, set defragmentation and optimization parameters, and add files to the Exclude List. When scheduling an automatic session, we could select defrag, optimize, or both.

There's nothing wrong with the built-in Windows disk defragmentation tool, at least nothing that Disk SpeedUp won't fix, first by dramatically speeding up the defragmentation process and second by optimizing the disk by moving large files to the end of the drive and other means.

"Best Feature -- It's Free"

January 12, 2014  |  By Red_Kangaroo

 |  Version: Disk SpeedUp 1.4.0.888

Pros

Very fast analysis
Scheduled scan started on time.

Cons

Promises a lot; but does not deliver.

Summary

This afternoon I have run this program more than 50 times. De-fragmentation is not yet complete on my first drive.

The default settings told me how many fragmented files it found but de-fragmented none. Experimenting with settings finally achieved a partial defrag.

None of the movies/large files were moved to the end as promised.

A major disappointment after happily using Glary Utilities for a long time - maybe even since version 1.

"Fast! but not as complete as Auslogics"

September 23, 2012  |  By kvnfl

 |  Version: Disk SpeedUp 1.4.0.888

Pros

Fast! Optimizer takes less than 5 minutes.

Cons

After defrag, Auslogics Defrag finds many fragmented files. But Auslogics optimizer takes a long time to complete.

Summary

It is like wiping dust off your wingtips with toilet paper. It is a quick fix, but not as good as true shoe shine. Good not great.
