Auslogics Disk Defrag
Superb disk defragmentation tool that will keep your hard drive in good working order

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.

Hard disks are by far the slowest component in your computer. Therefore fragmented disks often become a bottleneck of the system performance. Besides causing slowdowns, fragmentation makes the disk drive heads move too much when reading files which leads to freeze-ups and system crashes. Auslogics Disk Defrag was designed to remedy system sluggishness and crashes caused by disk fragmentation. It will help you get the maximum performance out of your expensive hardware investments.

With its auto-defragmentation feature, Auslogics Disk Defrag acts in real time, while your system is idle. Since Disk Defrags very compact and requires few system resources, it can easily defragment your hard drives in the background and you will not even notice its activity. Just set Disk Defrag to run automatically and you’ll forget about disks fragmentation shortly. You can also schedule a disk defragmentation process.

Build 8.0.17.0 brings these changes/improvements (version history):

- Made some functionality improvements.
- Fixed minor bugs.

Verdict:

One of the most powerful disk defragmentation tools, free for personal use, receive a major update with a host of new features

Unsafe dowload

Posted by: Judy Holmes, 10 March 2014 03:52

I have recently downloaded this program after doing so previously numerous times over past years AND this time it has been bundled with the "OpenCandy" threat which is hidden inside the USER AGREEMENT!

Seriously, trying to trick people inside a User agreement is wrong and should not have been rated 5 stars - I have been trusting downloads with high ratings from PC Authority for years and am now directing my friends and family elsewhere.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
