    "Simply the BEST Defrag Program out there"

    May 11, 2012  |   By Zowie2010

    Pros

    Every other defrag program I've tried defrags the files OK, but leaves them scattered all over your hard drive. Therefore, while 25% of your drive may be "free space", it's contained in thousands of tiny little fragments of free space. This program not only defrags yours files, but gives you nearly unlimited options as to how to reorganize them on your hard drive so you have large, contiguous blocks of free space.

    The hard drive map is VERY detailed (see the Con below). However, once you get used to it, it is fantastic to see exactly where your files are located and where the free space is on your hard drive.

    You can move your cursor over any portion of your hard drive map, and it tells you the name of the file located in that portion of your hard drive and how many fragments it is divided into.

    Cons

    The first time you open the GUI, it looks like abstract art. Unlike most defrag programs, it is showing you the status of each and every block and sector of your hard drive.

    It would be nice if there were a color key on the screen to remind you what all the color patches mean on your hard drive. You have to go to Help to get this information.

    Summary

    Download this one and forget the rest!

    MyDefrag IS The BEST...I agree 100 percent...This use to be called jkdefrag and now MyDefrag.I tried them all including the popular Auslogic Defragmenter but it left files scattered all over the Hard Drive so I stopped using it.MyDefrag doesn't leave all those files and fragments scattered all over your Hard Drive.
