Why Defragment Disks?
Disk fragmentation leads to system slowdowns, PC crashes, slow startups and shutdowns. Auslogics Disk Defrag® is designed for fast optimization of modern hard disks.
Hard disks are by far the slowest component in your computer. CPU and memory work much faster than hard disks since they do not have moving parts. So, fragmented disks often become a bottleneck to system performance.
As well as causing slowdowns, fragmentation makes the disk drive heads move more than necessary when reading files, and this can lead to freeze-ups and system crashes. It is important to keep your disks defragmented and optimized, as much as possible. Personally, I defrag with Auslogics Disk Defrag weekly.
Auslogics Disk Defrag was designed to remedy system sluggishness and crashes caused by disk fragmentation. It is optimized to work with today’s modern hard disks. The program is extremely easy to use, does not require any analysis phase and is faster than most disk defragmentation software. It will help you get maximum performance out of your hardware investments.
And, what’s most important; it’s absolutely free.
I have been using this application for the last year or more, and I recommend downloading Auslogics BoostSpeed to explore the multiple ways you can get better performance out of your system without expensive hardware updates.
Here are some key features of Auslogics Disk Defrag:
Improve computer performance and stability
Increase your productivity – no more waiting for files to open
Defragment disks in only a few minutes
Useful disk fragmentation map and detailed fragmentation report
Fragmentation is caused by creating and deleting files and folders, installing new software, and downloading files from the Internet. Computers do not necessarily save an entire file or folder in a single space on a disk; they’re saved in the first available space. After a large portion of a disk has been used, most of the subsequent files and folders are saved in pieces across the volume.
When you delete files or folders, the empty spaces left behind are filled in randomly as you store new ones. This is how fragmentation occurs. The more fragmented the volume is, the slower the computer’s file input and output performance will be.
Defragmentation is the process of rewriting non-contiguous parts of a file to contiguous sectors on a disk for the purpose of increasing data access and retrieval speeds. Because FAT and NTFS disks can deteriorate and become badly fragmented over time, defragmentation is vital for optimal system performance.
