    "For the bucks (free), very good software"

    July 24, 2011  |   By jlauret7

    Version: MyDefrag 4.3.1

    Pros

    Easy to use, does work for all kind of volume, provide excellent and thorough de-fragging with noticeable speed improvement. Multi-level fragmentation schedule (daily, weekly, monthly) very good. Cannot get better with commercial products.

    Cons

    Old looking interface with mysterious color legend. Scheduling is not intuitive to me (how to schedule specific tasks toward one drive and other tasks toward other drives unclear).

    Summary

    You can replace the Windows defragger with MyDefrag with confidence that a good job will be done, this is one freeware which has kept improving over the years and concentrated efforts over working features rather than the interface and appearance - it shows and MyDefrag provides superior de-fragmentation coming at equal footage than what commercial products provides. NB: users have noted restore points issues; I do not use restore points (they often fail when needed the most so moved to other safer means) and this could may be an issue. Nonetheless, this product is an excellent choice if you are looking for a bit more than the basic Windows defrag features.

    "good defragger"

    June 10, 2011  |   By jamesr888

    Version: MyDefrag 4.3.1

    Pros

    works to defrag and optimize hard drive

    Cons

    I still don't know what the orange squares are.

    Summary

    I like this defragger better than Windows defragger, I also like the graphics screen while it works. It also works fairly fast and helps to speed up a slow computer.

    "Decent defragger, with a glitch."

    February 25, 2011  |   By Shocktribe

    Version: MyDefrag 4.3.1

    Pros

    Seems to speed up computers a bit. Does a thorough job. Gives you many defragmenting options.

    Cons

    Wipes out system restore points on Windows 7. Takes its' sweet time.

    Summary

    I use this on two computers, an old xp and new 7 machine. It works fine on the xp pc, defragging even the system restore partition that is usually un-defragmentable, albeit taking hours to complete. It seems to have slightly sped up both machines beyond their speeds while using another free defragmenter. The biggest issue I have with mydefrag, is that it wipes out all of my restore points... every time. I had read about this problem before I installed it, and yes, it is true, even if I choose only to defragment only the c partition, and nothing else. I simply make sure my computer is clean and working properly before I defrag.

    "Very good Defrag as free software!"

    December 2, 2010  |   By CEOQ4-4472

    Version: MyDefrag 4.3.1

    Pros

    Like that you can select different storage memory on the computer! e.g. Memory stick or Hard drive!

    Cons

    Would like the consolidate free space to compact the hole drive, if it was possible and keep all partition compact and close to the systems files!

    Summary

    Just keep improving it and make it as fast as possible!
    The main screen for setting it up before defraging, could be more modern not old-fashioned and dull!

    "ULTIMATE defragmenter"

    October 26, 2010  |   By lenin_dcruz

    Version: MyDefrag 4.3.1

    Pros

    Fastest and biggest improvement in my Windows OS I ever seen after running this software.

    Cons

    Don't care about the "restore point" problems since I don't use them. LOVE THIS SOFTWARE.

    Summary

    Don't go by the look of this ancient-looking software. Read the manual (very easy) and run it after reading the short description of each task on the side pane of the software. Be patient for a few hours and you will have the best and fastest hard-disk in the Windows NTFS world!
