"Product good, support nonexistent"

November 06, 2008  |  By fallbrookw

 |  Version: UltimateDefrag 2008 2.0.0.53

Pros

Has as few bugs but does a decent job overall

Cons

After a couple of months DeFrag 08 will not open. Vista says there is a problem in the software. I have tried to contact DiskTrix several times. . Very dissapointing. Be advised if you buy it, your'e on your own. Hope they enjoy my $40.

Summary

Too many other good products out there with excellent support.

"Pros and Cons but LIGHT YEARS ahead of MS's defrag!"

October 10, 2008  |  By kiloyankee

 |  Version: UltimateDefrag 2008 2.0.0.53

Pros

Shows file names and activity information so you appear to be getting a real time progress report. Nice to be able to "see" the clusters and that something is happening. Lots of "options" and ways to interface with the software.

Cons

Jury is still out. I too showed 25% fragmented but running the program would not defrag or unfragment the sectors. This software is a DEFRAGMENTER...right? It does not show in the legend a "color" designation for damaged or bad sectors.

Summary

I like the software and it seems to do some nice things that Microsoft could be and should be including in their OS, but don't, for whatever reason(s). I do wish the "time remaining" clock on UltiimateDefrag could be a little more accurate. My first defrag (about 5 minutes into it) said it would take 54 minutes to complete, two hours and 10 minutes later it finished. I was left with a c: drive that was STILL (according to the software) had 25% fragmented files. WHY? That the main reason for purchasing the software, so it will defragment the files on my hard drive! The multicolored legend fails to have a catagory for bad/corrupt/damaged sectors. This is a critical bit of information when it comes to hard drive integrity and condition and this comprehensive software apparently doesn't recognize these sectors/clusters. I will continue to use and review this software. It's still as good as I have seen...to date, but to me anyway, there are still several critical areas that could be "fixed".

"Weird"

August 24, 2008  |  By nicko45

 |  Version: UltimateDefrag 2008 2.0.0.53

Pros

Cool interface, great idea if it worked properly.

Cons

I got the trial of this program because everybody keeps on saying how great it works. On the first analyze it said my degree of fragmentation was 25%...so ok i ran the auto defrag...now its 50%..what the hell. I have tried every single possible option configuration to try and get this to work, no luck. all my other defrag programs say the disk doesn't need defragmenting, but it still shows 50% on this with apparently no way to bring it down...waste of time.

"This thing sucks!!!"

August 21, 2008  |  By lordawesome

 |  Version: UltimateDefrag 2008 2.0.0.53

Pros

The uninstaller works.

Cons

It leaves files behind when you uninstall which is a required task if you run vista. This program claims to work with it, but it sucks. If you paid for this, I am sorry.

Summary

This program is excellent for taking money out of your wallet. Im glad I didnt pay for it. It does not work at all. I cant even start the program because it crashes right away.

"Quite impressive, deluxe."

July 12, 2008  |  By danwat1234

 |  Version: UltimateDefrag 2008 2.0.0.53

Pros

It has all the features a computer nerd loves. It is completely customizable, fast at doing it's job, and with the proper configuration, it gives your drive the fastest performance possible. The key is to configure it to sort all the directories and files on your hard drive by Name/Alphabetically, and to store unused files/directories such as Windows Update UNinstallers, and archive files, and games you aren't currently playing, to the end of the drive volume so it doesn't detriment the performance of accessing the data you use often.

Cons

It would be better if you could set the "archive" files that you configure, to be moved to right after the rest of your data, before the free space, instead of at the end of the volume
