Puran Defrag does seem to be better than those I have used in the past ... at least on my system.

Great program.  :)

BTW guys, you should also check out Puran Defrag my 3rd favorite commercial defrag, seriously it is a very very powerfull product and it allows you to SCHEDULE boot time defrags which i think is very cool. It also has a very smart optimization strategy, one which i feel can rival anything out there. Seriously good program. The price is very low aswell.  8)

I am using this from Jan 31 2010

I challenge you to use it

Because it is way much better on my system than Auslogics Disk Defrag, Defraggler or any other freeware product.

By Donn Edwards, a well-informed analizer defrag programs about:

  • "There is no difference between the free edition and the commercial edition, other than the license. It has all the features, the same cool layout, and the same ease of use. The guys at Puran Software are being incredibly generous to home users. There are no "nag screens" or irritating sales nonsense. This is a big win for the home user and non-commercial organisations."

This is because it do more task :)
I've notice that Puran Defrag also defrag/optimise places that some defragmenters don't do that.
And also it defrags the registry.
Hm...Defraggler and Auslogic don't defrag the registry right?

So, what your saying is there is an option to enable or disable it from doing automatic constant defragging  and it can be just run when you feel its necessary. if thats the case then it would be worth trying it out.

What i've always loved with this program is the ability to schedule boot time defrags. The only thing i dislike is the gui, it's really ugly if you ask me but hey as long as the program does it's job properly. :)

Some thing you might forget

Make sure you tick mark some needed Advanced options under 'Additional Operations' like

Fill Gaps to avoid Frequent Fragmentation

Optimize directories for Faster System Access

Free Some Space For Windows Temporary Files On Faster Disk Access

Boost Overall Speed by Puran Intelligent Optimizer (PIOZR)

I have made this my default ...

I'd say this is more user preference, i for one don't like the Free Some Space For Windows Temporary Files On Faster Disk Access option. I don't want it leaving free space at the start of the partition, i prefer system files to be there.
