Auslogics Disk Defrag Portable, Best Free Defrag Software For Your Hard Drive!
"If you're happy with Windows' built-in defragger, you won't need this program. But if you want more control over defragging and the ability to move system files to the beginning of your hard disk to speed up access, the free Auslogics Disk Defrag is well worth the download." —Preston Gralla, (Jun 7, 2011 12:00 AM)
"A few months ago, we ran a number of Product Spotlight pieces on disk defrag tools, and one consistency is that for each article we published, many readers kept talking about Auslogics Disk Defrag. It is really unusual to see that many people saying such nice things about a product, so we decided to give it a look, and the praise is justified!" —Justin James, (February 21, 2010, 11:59 PM PST)
"Disk Degfrag from Auslogics goes a little further than simple disk defragmentation. The app will also optimize your file system for faster file reads and writes, show you a list of fragmented files instead of a vague report of your hard drive's fragmentation status, and will even defragment single files and folders if you're having a hard time with a specific file or application." —Alan Henry, (10/30/11 8:00am)
Auslogics Disk Defrag Free is a compact and fast defragmenter with over 11,000,000 users worldwide. It will improve your PC's performance by defragmenting and re-arranging files on your disk.
