Defraggler 2.08.373

Most defrag tools only allow you to defrag an entire drive. Defraggler lets you specify one or more files, folders, or the whole drive to defragment.

When Defraggler reads or writes a file, it uses the exact same techniques that Windows uses. Using Defraggler is just as safe for your files as using Windows.

At a glance, you can see how fragmented your hard drive is. Defraggler's drive map shows you blocks that are empty, not fragmented, or needing defragmentation.

  • Give your hard drive a quick touch-up with Quick Defrag
  • Organizes empty disk space to further prevent fragmentation
  • Defragment while you sleep - and wake up with a faster PC. Set Defraggler to run daily, weekly or monthly
  • Full Windows OS and Multi-lingual support
  • Boot time defrag of system files
  • Supports 37 major languages

Defraggler is made by Piriform, the company that also brought you CCleaner and Recuva, so is completely free!

Changelog:

  • Added Disk and File benchmarking.
  • Added Volume Shadow Service (VSS) compatible mode.
  • Improvements to disk health tab.
  • Added Real Value information to SMART data.
  • Health tab now supports Fahrenheit.
  • Improvements to SSD detection.
  • Minor fixes to scheduler stop commands.
  • Minor defrag algorithm improvements.
  • Translation fixes.

Anyone know if this works with TRUE IMAGE or REFLECT now?

I remember trying it a couple years ago and while I liked the performance, it messed up things with True Image and I just didn't bother with it.

Weird, was just reading about True Image. Strange that they are making money off a product that just provides their own UI for features that are already built into Windows.

At best, they are turning on Windows Professional features in the Home Premium edition, which would be more advantageous for a user to just upgrade to Windows Pro or Ultimate and not have to buy a 3rd party program.

(Backup, Versions, - all built into Windows Vista & Windows 7. Sync is just Offline Files, again built into Windows XP/Vista/7 Professional/Ultimate, etc.)

As for Defraggler, if you have Windows 7, there is no need for this product, and it is sad to see Neowin peddling this stuff.

If you want a file by file or folder level control of defragging, go find Contig from SysInternals, now a part of Microsoft. It gives you file and folder level control of defragging, and it works with Windows APIs, so it won't screw up NTFS or system volume information.

The rest of the features of Defraggler are built into Windows 7, including the defragging of System Files, scheduled defragging, etc. Windows 7 also has smart monitoring and when it detects a heavily fragmented file that does hurt performance, it will defragment it in the background the next time your system is idle, without having to wait for the scheduled weekly scan.

Tools like this are a way to get money out of novice users that don't realize that newer versions of Windows already provide the features.
