The standard Windows Defragmentation tool is already a very handy utility but in case you're looking for greater speed and more advanced features, there are quite a few alternatives worth checking out and among them there's Auslogics Disk Defrag.
Although it is supposed to conduct such an important task, installing the software solution is a very simple thing. The only thing you need to be extra careful with is the bundled third-party software that can change the settings of your Internet browser.
The interface of Auslogics Disk Defrag is simple and pleasant, which means there should be no problems using it. You can first analyze a given hard disk to find out how fragmented it really is and only then start the process, thus saving a lot of time.
Besides the common defragmentation operation, Auslogics Disk Defrag comes with a bonus. It is able to optimize the system for greater speed, a feature that, according to the developer, must be used once a week.
We've tested the application on several computers and although there was no major improvement in speed on our PCs, the defragmentation is done pretty fast, in fact the whole procedure takes less time than the one carried out using the Windows built-in utility.
All in all, Auslogics Disk Defrag can easily replace the default tool your OS comes with and if you really need an alternative to that utility, this one might very well be the right one.
