Editors' Review

+

PerfectDisk streamlines the oftentimes slow and tedious defragging process. In fact it's so easy to use that even novices will feel compelled to defrag their machines more regularly.

Pros

Clean, easy controls: PerfectDisk has a clean, easy-to-follow instruction file and common-sense controls.

Details, help, and insight: The app provides helpful information on aspects like OptiWrite, its Real-time Fragmentation Prevention feature. It also offers detailed scheduling options in calendar form.

Cons

Dated interface: The fonts, colors, and buttons all have a slightly dated look, which can actually hinder navigation.

Problems with external links: The trial version runs quickly and offers what appears to be a good preview of the product, itself, but the license key link directs to a 404 page.

Bottom Line

PerfectDisk promises to make a tiresome task a bit easier, and on that front, it delivers in spades. An outdated interface can hinder navigation initially, but users who give it a try are likely to be pleased with its speed and performance.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of PerfectDisk Professional 13.0.

"Must buy new version with each Windows upgrade."

 |  Version: PerfectDisk Professional 14.0

Pros

Does a good job. Easy to read legends and maps. Easy set up.

Cons

I had Perfectdisk on Win7. When I upgraded to Win8 and tried to install
Perfectdisk the program informed me it could not run on Win8. So I bought
Perfectdisk 13. It worked fine on Win8 and Win8.1 but when Win10 came out..
guess what? PD 13 couldn't run on Win10. I would have to buy Perfectdisk 14.0.
Funny, but Auslogics Disk Defrag, Smart Defrag and Defraggler didn't have
those compatibility problems. And they're free. And well regarded. No, only
the "must pay for a new version" Perfectdisk had those problems. I wonder why?

Summary

This is a good program if you want to buy a new version time Windows changes.
I don't and I am no longer a Raxco (Perfectdisk) customer. Nor will I ever be
again. Today's review is brought to you by the word "greed".

"Does what it should. Upgrade policy is terrible."

Pros

Does a great job taking care of SSD and regular drives.

Cons

Upgrade policy is terrible.

Summary

I paid for PD13 this year. When I upgraded to Windows 10 I was told PD13 would no longer work and I'd have to pay for PD14. I guess I was supposed to pay extra for "upgrade" insurance. Won't be giving them any more of my money.
