Defraggler --- a Freeware Hard Disk Drive Defragmenter

Updated: See end of article.

Piriform, the makers of the popular CCleaner --- a freeware PC optimizer, has released an RC1 for its freeware hard disk drive defragmenter, Defraggler. Take note that it's still a release candidate and as such is still in the development phase. It's not finished and until it's completed I am not using it. Use it at your own risk.

Still, being a Piriform product, I am quite intrigued by this one and am keeping tabs on the Defraggler forum. You can be sure that when a v1.0 comes out, I'll be all over their download page like a Bengal tiger on a water buffalo.

Update: It seems that v1.02.077 still has bugs. Darn, methinks it'll be a while before they release the software.

CCleaner is really good.

For defragging I use Auslogics Disk Defrag - it's free, fast and reliable.

Yes it is!

Auslogics Disk Defrag? And it's free? I'll definitely check that out when I get home. (I'm at the office atm.) Thanks for commenting!
