Organise and optimize your HDD

For those who don't have or know what a defragmeter is, it is a software that organises the files on your Hard drive (HDD) so that they are not fragmented, this increases boot speeds, frees up more hard drive space, and many other benefits. Well you will be happy to know that a free programme called "Auslogics Disk Defrag" offers all of the benefits of defragmentation. I recommend this programme to anyone and I guarantee it will free up some hard drive space (on its first use).

  1. Good to know there's still a keen interest in developing defragging software...I might give this one a whirl, it looks like a worthy upgrade from the Windows one. Cheers mate.

  7. Does windows 7 have an in-build defragger ?

    ReplyDelete
  8. @Pieter MD yes but they don't spend to much time making it, they don't update it, that's why getting a third party software is good because they are dedicated to it.

  13. Was it vista or 7 where the defrag didn't show a progress bar? Either way that's the reason that I'm lazy and never do it. This seems super useful.

  33. @barbecues I'm sure there are probably stats out there on the net, but from my experience, it defiantly does free up space if you have never defraged before.

    ReplyDelete
