Auslogics Disk Defrag is extremely simple to use, does not require any analysis phase and is faster than most of the other disk defragmentation software. It will help you get the maximum performance out of your expensive hardware investments. And, what’s most important, it’s absolutely free.

Please note: This guide was published back in 2008 and is now considered out of date. The software does still exist but has changed significantly enough that the following steps are likely no longer accurate. Also, there are two versions now – a free version and a Pro (paid) version.

  5. Click the Defragmentation tab, and if you’d like, place a check in the box labeled Remove temporary files before defragmentation. Auslogics Disk Defrag removes temporary files in the following locations before defragmenting: C:\Documents and Settings\your-username\Local Settings\Temp (or C:\Users\your-username\AppData\Local\Temp), and C:\Windows\Temp. If you want to be able to defrag USB and/or memory sticks, place a check in the box labeled Display removable drives. And if you’d like to alter the amount of CPU that Auslogics Disk Defrag uses, change the Normal setting to suit your needs. Click OK when you’re done.
