Martha from TN asks:

Do you know anything about a defrag tool called Defraggler? If you do, I’d love to learn more about it. Thanks for any information you can share!

You know, I’m really glad you asked this question, because I actually just heard about Defraggler the other day and after trying it out for myself, I knew I just had to tell all of you about it as well! It was even mentioned on WorldStart’s message board the other day (thanks to user “yorkshire lass”), so you know it must be worth discussing. So, what do you say we check it out?





Basically, Defraggler is a free defrag program you can download that allows you to defrag just the files you want. That’s right, you no longer have to process your whole hard drive if you don’t want to. Once you download the program, you simply run it, select the files you want and let Defraggler do its thing. It makes the process go a whole lot faster and you get peace of mind knowing exactly what’s being defragged on your computer. And from time to time, if you want to defrag your whole hard drive, you can do that as well.

Another great feature of Defraggler is it’s very compact and portable. It was designed with a compact architecture, which results in a single EXE application. Therefore, it can be copied over to a flash drive or other portable device so that you can use it whenever you need it, without installing it again. The EXE application itself is only 1 MB in size as well. It doesn’t get much more compact than that!

Now, I’m sure you’re wondering how the whole defrag process works, am I right? Well, like I said before, all you have to do is download Defraggler and run it just like any other program. You then select the files or folders on your computer that you would like to defrag. Once the defrag is done, Defraggler will tell you the job was done successfully and if there are any, it will give you a list of fragmented files still on your hard drive. If you click on them, you’ll be able to see exactly where they are on your drive, which should help you better understand why they couldn’t be defragged. Cool, huh?!

Also, just for some additional information, Defraggler works with Windows 2000, 2003 and XP – Vista, 7 and a 64-bit support system was just added. It was also created by the same company that brought you CCleaner (Piriform) and I know several of you are fans of that. Once again, Defraggler is 100 percent free of cost and you can download it for yourself right here. Just click on the Download Now link and follow the directions. In no time, you’ll be defragging your system with absolute ease. It doesn’t get any better than that!
