Puran's Boot time defrag & Intelligent Optimizer

I have been testing Defraggler and Puran against my old favorite Auslogics defragger, which I've installed hundreds of times over ten years with great user satisfaction.

It's unmistakeable that Defraggler and Puran do more than Auslogics, sometimes finding twice as much or more fragmentation. They also do more to make files contiguous, with Puran moving files for more compactness.

Most impressive is Puran's boot time defrag which includes System Files, and it's Intelligent Optimizer option on Operations tab which improves performance by how it positions files. Performance no longer will lag on a 1gb RAM Celeron.

I plan to test these for several more months but Puran is winning my vote. I'd like to hear other's views - sorry the poll only allowed four.

Win 7 Ult + Starter, XP Pro +Home, 2kAS, Linux Mint 8, SuperOS

Used Puran for a couple of years now - I love the functionality and dislike the interface - for instance, part of the window remains hidden below my netbook's little screen, and it doesn't look like an XP, Vista or Win 7 App - more like something from the Chromium stable. The early documentation was very Indlish, I don't know if it has been rewritten.

There are great features like those in the sysinternals pagedefrag and contig utilities, in that not only are the pagefile and registry hives defragmented at boot time, there is the right-click option to defragment individual files and folders on demand, as well as options to run a disk check before and to exclude certain files.

I'd still give it 9/10 though.

Windows 7 Ultimate (x64)

I admit I have never before heard of Puran. I got curious, installed the free version and ran the analysis. Mind you, I have never defragmented this drive. I've got this computer three years ago, during this time I did re-partition the disk a couple of times, last time a couple of months ago, but I have never defragmented, since the Windows 7 defrag tool has never reported fragmentation larger than 1%. By what I see in this Puran analysis, I still don't need to degragment anything.

Now, is there a way to analyze for the possible effects of the boot-time optimization, such as moving Windows files around the drive - that's what Puran is supposed to do, right?

Windows 10 Pro x64

I like Defraggler's UI and CLI options more, but I've used Puran and there's nothing wrong with it (other than it is pretty ugly).
