Windows 7: Auslogics Disk Defrag vs IObit Smart Defrag

Wow, I may be in Defrag nirvana but the new Puran defragger is somehow filling all of the empty spaces in all 3 of my HD partitions. I've never seen this before.

Can some others try this too to see if this is really happening as it appears. It may be some kind of breakthrough.

Out of the two you mentioned, AUSLOGIC is the safest bet. I've had many problems with IOBIT. Plus Auslogic updates and improves the software almost each month. If you want a paid software, go for TUNEUP 2011 or (better still) O&O.

Auslogics get's my vote. Then again both app's are free and good at what they do but as I said my preference is for Auslogics..

was intrigued by this, so decided to try it out.

initially i downloaded the trial version from the first link on the download page, but it kept giving me error messages during installation - however the second (cnet) download link worked fine.

anyway, yes greg, is it filling in the gaps here - it's there in the 'additional operations' tab - and it's good to see - other defraggers would often infuriate me by leaving loads of holes around the place.

i've only experimented with one of my data partitions, i don't want to let it anywhere near my ssd os drive...

i used to be mad keen on defragging, and would spend inordinate amounts of time doing it, watching the little boxes change colour - such fun!

now i feel more like pparks - i've never noticed slow performance with a fragged disc, nor better performance when defragged. however, i do appreciate the theory, and do like to defrag my data drives every now and again, especially if i've been doing a lot of deleting or adding big files.

well, it started off well, but it's not perfect:

to be fair, i do think the three big isolated chunks are three big image files - but even so, it could have rearranged them more efficiently.

not quite defrag nirvana yet, greg...

A pretty GUI to sit and stare at while it did its thing no doubt.

That said I just use the Windows defrag scheduled to run overnight on a weekly schedule.

I defrag more often than I used to. I find myself creating and deleting a lot of files (a lot of data) fairly often.

Puran Defrag will also do a boot time defrag. I have Auslogics, Puran, My Defrag, and the Power Defrag GUI for contig. I use the Auslogics mostly, but will occasionally run a boot defrag, or one of the others. They are all good in their own ways. A Guy
