Quickly defragment your hard drive

The more you use your PC, the more your files will become fragmented, split into multiple chunks and scattered all over your hard drive. Everything still works, just slowly, as your drive heads must do extra work to access the same information.

Defragmenting your hard drive occasionally is a very good idea, then, and UltraDefrag has plenty of options to deliver the results you need. It can defragment a single file or folder, for instance (useful if you just want to boost the speed of one application with the minimum of hassle). You can manually defragment a drive whenever you've a little time to spare, set up a boot-time defrag to rearrange system files that would otherwise be locked, and even schedule a defrag to run when you're not around.

There's plenty of power here, then. The program is very light on system resources, performance seems generally very good, and the cluster map interface gives you something to watch while UltraDefrag does its work. Exploring the Settings dialog reveals one unexpected quirk, though - most of the buttons open Notepad with a copy of a configuration file, which you must change manually. It's a less than user-friendly option that will baffle some, and leave even experts with a chance of accidentally altering the wrong setting.

Note this is the Portable version of UltraDefrag.

Verdict:

A fast, powerful defrag tool, but not built for ease of use. Try it with care

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
