Defraggler 2.11 released with support for Windows 8

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 support for Windows 8.
  • Added Minimize to Tray.
  • Added right-click Move File to end of Drive feature.
  • Improvements to Free space calculation.
  • Fixed exclusions in df.exe.
  • SSD drives are now handled correctly when drives are queued for defrag.
  • Improved drive map block calculation for very small drives.
  • Shortcuts are now correctly interpreted when calculating fragmentation levels.
  • Improved support for /minpercent parameter for df.exe.
  • Minor GUI improvements.
  • Minor bug fixes.

i haven't used a 3rd party defragger since Windows 7, and the Windows 8 defragger has greatly improved over 7's once again. so I see no reason to use a 3rd party app any more

The reason why Iu se 3rd part software is because Microsoft can't focus on every aspect of their OS, for example: IE, Media Player, Defrag, Regedit, et cetera.

There was lot of feedback and whining about IE being outdated, then they started making IE 7 and 8, but they were outdated too, so now they buckled up and made it a real challenger, I don't use it though, because I use XP now, but might change it.

There is next to no feedback about Media Player, Defrag... hell, Regedit even has an Icon dating more than 10 years ago. If there is no feedback and whining, Microsoft probably think they are all right in that aspect, but that's not true.

Media Player barely works for music, let alone movies - if I want to load some subtitles, I probably won't be able, because there is no encoding options and cyrillic subtitles never appear as they should. If I were to rely on Microsoft, I'd never have anything done. They just need to focus on their OS and let other people focus on the rest.
