A Clean but Non-Inviting User Interface

The elements seem to be on a platter. There is literally nothing that you yourself have to dig in and continue. Everything is so simple that anyone can understand and has enough features to make managing tasks effective but not overwhelming. However, when I got my hands on to it, ah, it was not inviting though. I think it was not satisfactory. At least not for me!

Kick Up the Disk Performance

Auslogics Disk Defrag Ultimate incorporates a host of advanced features, and gives you in-depth control over the defrag process, yet remains generally very easy to use. It has an extensive scheduling option (including the ability to create multiple tasks) and allows monitoring and managing the load on system resources produced by the program. You can choose to defragment an individual file, a folder, or an entire partition, giving control over the system.

A Wide Array of Defragmentation Models

Disk Defrag Ultimate sports an array of algorithms for disk defragmentation and optimization. Well, it starts off with the basic and simple Defrag operation type and this one only defragments the files without optimizing their placement on the disk.

It is, however, the fastest type of defragmentation. Following this is the SSD drive optimization that uses a special algorithm for defragmenting the SSD drives, which technically reduces the number of write operations and, therefore, ensures a longer operating life for the drive. This mode also improves the performance of the drive.

Subsequently, the mode Optimize by Prefetch layout speeds up your system loading and application startups. It performs an optimization of file placement based on the data received from the Prefetch system module, which ultimately speeds up the system loading and application launch.

Then comes the Free Space Optimization that defrags both the files and the free space on a disk to achieve the largest possible size of a contiguous free space block. If for example, you want to have faster access to frequently used files then opt for Optimize by Access Time module. It will defrag the files and optimize placements of files on the disk according to the time of the last access, hence allowing faster access to the files.

This one is more or less similar to the last, however, it defragments the files and optimizes it on a disk according to the time of last change. Hence, allowing you to work with the files much faster.

The last, however, is the algorithm that allows you to define the disk zone for placing the files to optimize access to them. As a result, it will manually specify which file types or even the individual files should be written to the faster part of the disk.

Forcibly Defrag the locked Files

Boot-time Defrag defrags the system files that are normally not accessible. These locked files can be defragged by Offline Defragmentation (synonym for Boot-time defrag). So whenever you to try launching the system, boot-time runs on the system startup, before the Operating System loads, allowing you to streamline the following system files: MFT files, Paging file, Hibernation file and Windows Registry files. As a result, your Windows will become more responsive and improve its speeds and overall performance.

Assign It a Set Time

Auslogics Disk Defrag Pro runs the application at the time you set it to. It typically means that you have can run it precisely at the specified time. Hence, letting you do other tasks. Alternatively, you can run or use Auto Defragmentation mode which generally means that you can defragment and optimize the disk in real-time, ensuring that file fragments are removed as soon as it detects it. While you use the tool, there is nothing that could distract you from working on with your computer.

UpLift SSD Longevity

The Special SSD optimization algorithm prevents the wear of the disk and extends its longevity. It does this by reducing the number of write operations during the defragmentation. If you don't want this option in the list, simply exclude it.

Look-Over the Stats

When you are done with analyzing and optimizing the disk, you can survey the stats and track performance and system update through detailed reports and charts provided by the program. If you wish to have it in hard form or the printed form, give it the command to print and you'll be set all on your way.

Run it Over Directories

Auslogics has made it easy for everyone to defrag the files or folders they use more often. This, therefore, saves time compared to when defragging the entire drive.

Get a Formulated Fragmented List

Auslogics Disk Defrag gives you a list of the fragmented files after a disk cleanup and analysis. Now, the list you get will highlight the fragments on the cluster map. As a result, you can find the most fragmented files by sorting through the list. Now, you can choose which files to defragment or put  it in the ignore list. To do this, simply right-click the file and select the desired option.

Wash Away the Disk Errors

Disk Cleanup and checkup removes temporary files and scans a disk for any errors just before the defragmentation. Now, what happens is when the defragmentation is run, the program won't have to waste the time checking and filtering out the junk files, making defragmentation faster and safer.

Streamline How You'll Achieve the Optimal Disk

Right on the startup or you may choose to work on it later, you'll get a prompt with the disk optimization algorithm and defrag options. This in-fact suggests the program what optimization algorithm to use to achieve the optimal disk and system performance.

Spare Some Space for File Expansion

You can specify the amount of free space, so as to give some space to the files - if they expand, reducing the fragmentation. So, if you add a file or something, it would be store over on the disk and not somewhere else.

Eliminate Free Space Shrinking

VSS-compatible algorithm works to minimize the growth of the VSS storage area caused by file movements during the defragmentation. As a result of it, the chances of overwriting the previous VSS snapshots. It also reduces the problem of the free space shrinking that normally happens during the defrag process.

Consolidate Free Space

With Auslogics Disk Defrag Ultimate, you can knit the free space into a continuous block, to allow files to be written without fragmentation.

Auslogics Disk Defrag Free VS Pro VS Ultimate

The free version performs a disk analysis and basic defrag with its ultra-fast defragmentation engine that can consolidate free space and check for disk error and repair,while also letting you defrag a single file or folder. The pro version ($8.48 (reg. $9.98) 1 year / 3 PC license) includes all this and including Special Algorithms for SSD with boot-time or offline defragmentation and scheduling automatic defrags. While also it wipes free space on the drives, it cleans the disk before defrag. Its Ultimate version that also costs ($8.48 (reg. $9.98)1 year / 3 PC license) is pretty penny for all the features except wiping free space on the drives. It offers:

  • Fragmentation Prevention
  • Defragmentation Wizard
  • List of Fragmented Files
  • Resource Management
  • Performance Charts
  • VSS-Compatible Algorithm

Our Thoughts

Through our testing and analysis we have realized that Auslogics Disk Defrag ultimate has an edge over other disk optimizing softwares. To my fantasy, I never would've thought my laptop would ever get back stable. However, through running the software application, it helped me to uplift my PC performance.

Indeed, it lets you choose from different types of advanced defragmentation, use task scheduling, and check before and after results, satisfying high defrag requirements. Therefore Disk Defrag Ultimate is a powerful utility tool that keeps your system running at its peak performance.
