This came up within minutes of installing the new version. I clicked the I do not care button. Waiting to see if it comes up again or not. If it does, this program will be history also.

You earned it, who the hell uses that crap-ware in 2014?

I did want to sound rude, so I did

Defraggler is a much better alternative.

Only time I use this defragger is on XP machines, yes I still service them.

Everyone seems to be throwing in bloatware these days :/ It's the cnet effect.

 

+1 for defraggler anyway.

You had to notice, :huh:

 

I agree also that everyone is throwing in crapware and I'm NOT getting anything from CNET!

I said it was the cnet effect, not that you're getting your s/w from them.

Yeah,

I know what you meant!

 

I just tried defraggler on another computer. Does the regular/full defragging always take as long as what it took?

Depends on the spec of the machine and the amount of fragmentation... it's no slower than the Windows defrag IMHO. Plus you can defrag single files which is nice.

Looks like you got a dodgy download.

 

Latest version is 4.5.4.0, look here http://www.auslogics...re/disk-defrag/

I stopped using Defraggler cos is was so slow, Auslogics disk defrag is much faster.

Exactly why I don't use Windows defragger. Slower than molasses!

Downloaded the new version directly from here. I agree Auslogics is much quicker, but don't need any stupid pop up telling me it's time to take a break!

You are correct, I just got that pop-up after installing 4.5.4. Awesome, other good product ruined by greed.

I just wrote up a support ticket to pass on my dissatisfaction about this.
