Editors' Review

+

This program analyzes and defragments you computer in a very short amount of time. It even goes further to let you manually place files in high performing areas of your hard drive. Unfortunately, it uses a very unattractive user interface to accomplish all of these tasks.

We were a little put off at first by UltimateDefrag 2008 because we had to run it as an Administrator to access it. Otherwise, it produced an error. The program opens with a garishly designed interface that is busy and hard on the eyes. The multiple colors used also make it difficult to navigate. Not knowing where to go first, we clicked the button to start analyzing our C drive, and immediately, the program began the process. In a matter of minutes, it had displayed the file count, contiguous files, and fragmented files. Through the Options menu, we were able to manually add files to the outer, higher performance area of the hard drive, or archive specific files in the less used spaces. If you don't want to manually add files, you can automate the process and designate percentages to each area. We also liked that you can exclude files from the whole process.

Aside from the horrid interface design, we were also disappointed with the program's help options. It offers a PDF Help file, but we were unable to access it. On top of that, we found very little help through the publisher's Web site. That being said, novice users should bypass this program. But more experienced users might want to use the 14-day trial period to give this program a try.

    "a way to damage the file system"

    November 23, 2013   |   By looki901

    Version: UltimateDefrag 4.0.98

    Pros

    the overall idea of the app is very good, it indeed can optimize the system if "all" the most used files can be found in a sequential stripe of data

    Cons

    spite the fact of the app having a good idea, it cant execute very well, there seems to be many bugs in the app, one of them are, some times it become stuck in some file that is currently in use by the OS, and, then it enter in an infinite loop, until the app freeze and you have to close and open again... also, there seems that the function to defrag individual files seems to be buggy, one time I tried it and my files got damaged, so it not works always, and the MFT defrag, and boot defrag, some times does not seems to work well

    Summary

    I hope some day it get fixed and become a better defragger!

    "the cnet editor needs to be fired"

    November 19, 2012   |   By stewievader

    Version: UltimateDefrag 4.0.98

    Pros

    this is a very powerfull and great tool

    the interface is well designed,giving you an exact view of your hard-drive(unless your unskilled at computers like this editor)

    it can do stuff NO OTHER DEFRAGMENTER CAN. (resize/defrag/move mft and pagefile)
    ever since norton abandoned their defragmenter way back,there has never been a program that will let you defragment or move the nfts files.

    Cons

    the downside being you have to have a decent knowledge of computers in general to understand this program....which the cnet reviewer doesnt have

    Summary

    very powerfull,lets you modify files no other defragmenter can

    requires moderate computer skills
