WTF is it with this post?

It keeps coming up in my results when I click view new content, but the last post was by me and its been almost a year (this is the second time I have spotted this topic in the results)

Edit: nm, I think it may have something to do with the poll :P

I like UltimateDefrag personally. It seems much faster and now that the new version finally came out you can actually drag and drop the files to any position you like on your hard drive. It just gives you complete control I guess that is why I prefer it. There is a 30 day trial of the new version also if you want to try it just type "ultimatedefrag" in Google and i think it is the first or second link.

PerfectDisk is very good but not free. Used v9 and v10.
Defraggler is very slow, Auslogics, the one i use now, is fast but don't have all the features of PerfectDisk like offline defrag and unattended (automatic) defrag.

Diskeeper. is the best. you set it and forget it. to prove how well it wrok get an image of your drive before you install. then 2 days after do another image. on top of that if you really want to get crazy good defrag. do the boot time defral n matther how many HDD you have set each one the PC will do eack reboots if nescessay then start up normall. Crazy wicked program.

i think i've defraged maybe twice in 15 years. However, my favourite defragger today is defraggler.

Yeah, I understand. I do not defrag nearly as much as I used to. That and having an SSD helps too. ;)

Auslogics Disk Defrag is a simple disk defragmentation program. You can defragment multiple disks or select individual files or folders for defragmentation. Auslogics allows you to set the priority of the application and can tell your computer to shut itself down when the defragmentation process is complete—a handy feature when you want it to scan and defragment while you're sleeping but don't want to leave your computer idling all night. Auslogics Disk Defrag is a free and portable application.

PerfectDisk may conflict with some application or activex plug-in, lite BOC seturity toolkit (an onlie bank client control in China), as a result I discard it and now I am using O&O defragger

30€ for a defragmenter is a litlle high, even if it's the better of its kind.

In the past I have used perfectdisk, was also very good.

The main problem with these tools (excluding the price) is all the bloat they install, like services, startup entries, internet connections....

 

Now I just use Auslogic disk Defrag, it's free and enough for my needs (as many these days my system disk is a SSD).

Yea, thats really true.,

But you can unchoose all in install.

Anyway here is a free vesion of O&O:

http://www.oo-software.com/en/free

 

And the trial goes 30 days, much time for defrag system.

One time defrag hdds give a bit performance, then you can uninstall.

Its need much time/move big files, thats the system need another defrag.

 

Another smart, short and free app (not in list):

https://www.piriform.com/DEFRAGGLER

 

Not tested yet, but its from the same developers of CCleaner, so i thinkt its useful.

In my tests, Defraggler was a lot more slower than Auslogics disk-defrag.

 

O&O free is interesting, but when you compare the missing features vs pro version, Auslogics seems a better choice.

Using the trial can be good for a one time defrag, but the real advantage of its kind of defrag software is the scheduled/auto defrag to keep a low level of fragmentation .
