Glaryutilities' Disk SpeedUp is a free standalone utility that analyzes, defragments, and optimizes your disk drives or individual folders. It offers manual and automatic defrag options as well as automatic shutdown after defragmenting finishes.

Like many system utilities, Disk SpeedUp has a colorful interface with large, clearly labeled buttons and tabs labeled Defrag Show and Settings. The Defrag Show tab showed our two disk drives and their capacity, free space, status, and percentage of fragmentation. In the middle was a standard defrag map, while at the bottom of the interface, Disk SpeedUp displayed tabs with our three partitions, each with individual graphs and data. To the left, three prominent buttons let us choose Defrag Now, Auto Defrag, and Schedule options. We chose both hard disks and all three partitions. We could analyze, defrag, or optimize our selected disks or folders as well as pause or stop the operation.

Disk SpeedUp claims "smart" defragmentation methods that speed up and improve the process. We can't swear to their effectiveness other than to note that this tool is certainly fast. The color-coded defrag map gave us a good visual indication of the state of our disks. We could check for updates, but there's no Help file, though the developer's Web site offered some information. Under Settings, we could change the language, integrate the program with Windows startup and context menus, set defragmentation and optimization parameters, and add files to the Exclude List. When scheduling an automatic session, we could select defrag, optimize, or both.

There's nothing wrong with the built-in Windows disk defragmentation tool, at least nothing that Disk SpeedUp won't fix, first by dramatically speeding up the defragmentation process and second by optimizing the disk by moving large files to the end of the drive and other means.

Developer's Description

Disk Defrag is a totally free and extremely fast defragmentation tool developed by Glarysoft to analyze, defrag and optimize disks or a single file/folder for peak computer performance. Disk Defrag can analyze all fragments on drives and show how fragmented the drives are before you defrag. You can get an intuitive view of drive fragmentation through the drive map if you choose analyze selected and also get a new view of the defragged disk analysis result after a successful defrag. How could Disk Defrag defrag and optimize drives? Disk Defrag detects all the fragments in seconds and rearranges files stored on a disk to occupy contiguous storage locations, intelligently reorganizes most fragmentation for the purpose of speeding up access speed, quickening applications launch, increasing search speed, shortening system startup times and enhancing overall system performance. The user-friendly interface offers basic functions, such as analyze the disk, defrag the disk, defrag and optimize the selected disk/file/folder, automatic defrag when PC is idle, automatic shutdown when defragmentation completed and schedule preset. In addition, Disk SpeedUp is intelligent with more advanced settings to meet advanced requests, such as auto start-up with OS, customizable presets for optimized defrag and excludes option for ignoring the specific files and folders that you don't want to defrag. Disk Defrag is an powerful defragmentation tool for windows platforms. It is as safe as Windows. It applies the most efficient algorithm to rearrange file and optimize your disk.
