None whatsoever - unless you're looking for something that simply reboots the system and forgets to run after the reboot!
I was looking for something to do a chkdsk on an external drive where XP's chkdsk was being "stubborn". All this programme did was reboot the system - that's it, nothing more, no matter what options were chosen. Utter waste of time.
None. Can't really find any.
Worse than junk... one should really just defrag in safe mode. It hangs and gods know when I can pull the plug. And there is lamest excuse from its website http://www.powerdefrag.co.za/article.php?id=1
Don't ever use it... even if it is free... actually even someone pay you to use it. Unless you don't care if you data will get all lost.
It does work.
Yikes! I wanted a simple defrag that I could use to defrag my USB external hard drive which would actually defrag the free space as well. The built-in Windows defrag utility doesn't do this. The first thing this utility did was reboot my computer and take over 100% control of the system while it ran its defrag in the foreground, before explorer started. I was forced to go do something else for the hour that it took to run (200Gb drive). What a steaming pile of crap this utility was. My computer is worthless for an hour, while their $30 software defrags my external drive. As soon as it finished, I uninstalled it, praying that my data was intact.

While it didn't trash my hard drive, it didn't do a very good job at defragging it, either. White space is still spread out across the whole drive....I've got a 30Gb backup file to copy to the drive and it will be seriously fragmented after the copy and neither this software nor the built-in Windows utility will fix that problem.
I could not get the standard Microsft accessory programs 'Scandisk ' or 'Disk Defragment" to work on my old Windows ME computer. Power Defrag tackled it and after seven hours it finished the task!
Also did a quick defrag on my laptop running Windows Vista Business.
It appears that blank partions are not compacted, thus a disk defragmentation with the Microsoft application is neccessary to complete the process. A minor inconvenience for a useful application
How can I tell if it downloaded or not? I have no icons or it isn't on my add/remove programs list. I have been trying to download this software for several days but keep getting messages saying "object...site blocked." Can you help me resolve this issue? (Or did it download?)
It reminded me of windows 3.1 with its pathetic interface. That was good for a laugh.
This product is worthless and at the cost of $30.00 is a total waste. If you want a good defrag program I suggest looking elsewhere. As stated by a different reviewer you can do the same things as this in safemode. Not Impressed!

1. If you claim to be a tech that knows a lot and endorse this piece you must work for them.
2. If you are too stupid to know how to go into safemode you will love this product.
3. If you are not in the first too catagories you thought it was a worthless piece.
Just thought this had to be said!
Easy to use
It looks like this software does nothing: it is just a different user interface to what the OS gives to you already.
Restart the system without any information after click the button Begin.
It causes data los.
Easy to use and cleaned up my PC great. I'm no pro and really appreciated finally getting defrag to work again.
