How to keep your hard drive defragmented with Disk Defraggler 2.0

Slick "defrag" utility beats Windows' own tool at every turn

Article comments

Want to keep your system running smoothly? The more fragmented your hard drive becomes, the harder - and slower - it works. And over time, a hard drive can be mighty fragmented indeed.

Piriform's Defraggler 2.0 offers a number of advantages over the defragmentation tool that's built into Windows. For starters, you can choose what you want to "defrag": selected files, selected folders, or your entire hard drive.

It also has a "quick defrag" option that can give your drive a tune-up in a matter of minutes. Like Windows' Disk Defragmenter, Defraggler 2.0 can be set to run at designated times. Unlike DD, it provides a lovely visual drive map that shows just how fragmented your drive is.

Version 2.0 adds various interface improvements, better Windows 7 compatibility, and the option to run "offline" when your PC boots.

If your system seems slow, I recommend giving Disk Defraggler a try. It's free, easy to use, and definitely better than what's built into Windows.
