If you are a Windows user, then you must know that it’s important to run disk defragmentation once in a while. Defragging your hard drive is the best way to keep your computer in top shape and speed things up.
There are lots of great free disk defragmenters out there that you can use, including Auslogics Disk Defrag. This free defragmenter is one of the fastest ones and is really popular (more than 10,000,000 downloads). This tool has lots of advanced features that other free defrag utilities lack, but now Auslogics went even further and developed a high-end disk optimization program – Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro.
AUSLOGICS DISK DEFRAG PRO RATING:
EASE OF USE: 5/5
Let’s have a look at its features:
- Boot-time defragmentation
- Four smart defragmentation algorithms
- SSD optimization
- Fragmentation prevention
- Disk cleanup and checkup
- and more…
All these features make Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro a really powerful piece of software to optimize HDDs and SSDs to peak performance.
We’ve installed Disk Defrag Pro on our test system to see what it can do to optimize out hard drive. The hard drive has two partitions – C where the system is installed and D where all the files are. The program detected that both partitions need to be defragmented and asked to choose a defrag algorithm. We’ve chosen the Simple Defrag . Disk Defrag Pro reported that the performance was increased from 63.63% to 71.77%.
Not a bad result. Another great thing about the software is that it’s really fast and didn’t take anywhere near what the Windows defragmenter needs to simply defrag files.
While reviewing Disk Defrag Pro, we’ve come across a feature that we liked a lot. This feature is called the Defragmentation Wizard.
What it does is makes configuring and scheduling Disk Defrag Pro as easy as simply selecting the answers to questions about the way you use your PC. All you need to do is run the Wizard, select the answers to the questions and Disk Defrag Pro will choose the best algorithm and the best schedule for you. Once the Wizard settings are saved, your drives will be defragged and optimized automatically on a schedule or whenever your computer is idle for a certain period of time. This means that Disk Defrag Pro is really easy to use even if you are a computer novice.
Another notable Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro feature is SSD optimization. Most experts agree that SSDs shouldn’t be defragmented because conventional defragmentation performs too many write operations, which shortens the lifetime of the disk. That’s why you should never defragment an SSD drive. But Disk Defrag Pro has a special algorithm that doesn’t defrag, but rather optimizes file placement on an SSD. This helps to not only keep your disk running fast, but also prevents damage caused by excessive write operations.
Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro costs $29.95. It has a free fully-functional 30-day trial period.
