Auslogics Disk Defrager vs Perfect Disk?
« on: October 14, 2010, 07:26:46 AM »
Hi there,

How do you experienced members’ rate & compare:

Auslogics Disk Defrager vs Perfect Disk....AD is a freeware light but cannot defrag boot time or metadata...am I correct?

Haven’t ever used it…..been using Disk Keeper earlier & now PD....which according to some is pretty bloated software. The only plus point is boot time, meta data, free space & smart consolidation features?

Hoping to hear your thoughts?

Regards!

I prefer Auslogics by a wide margin. I tried "Perfect Disk " and it was far from that. It was very bad at optimizing my files and actually left more fragments behind than there were before. Auslogics is very fast and good. In my opinion, there is no need for either a boot defrag or scheduled or background defragging. All those things just cause unnecessary wear and tear on the HD. A defrag and optimize once a week at the most with Auslogics is all you should ever need. Today's fast HDD's benefit far less from defragging than the ones of the past.

Thanks again Dch48 for your tried tested views & thoughts. Boot time as you said is not needed Does it defrag meta data & space consolidation…..I’ll give it a try?

I use the regular defrag, and then if needed I use the boot-time defrag.  Not only is it fast, but very efficient.  I've tried most of the others, but stuck with this one.

Thumbs down to defraggler!

It was very very nice defragment tool, but with every new release it's defrag speed become slower and slower, no more good at all. Auslogics is far better these days. Have you tried it when you say you prefer defraggler?
