Windows Defrag Manager

Editors' Review

by   / February 27, 2009

Although Windows Defrag Manager offers an easy way to schedule disk defragmentation, we were not impressed with the way it handled the task. Its well-designed interface includes a toolbar for quick access to commonly used features, such as the ability to add a new schedule item, and a schedule list, which displays all scheduled defrags. The scheduling window lets you easily schedule defrags through a series of check boxes. During our tests the program launched the defragmentation only once out of 15 times. We found the process of defragmentation very confusing, as there is nothing to indicate when it starts, such as a pop-up window or icon change in the system tray. It also doesn't display a report when the defrag stops. As Windows Defrag Manager relies on Windows' own defragmenter, we don't see much value in this program, especially since other scheduling programs can run many more tasks than just the Windows defragmentation utility.
