Ashampoo Magical Defrag... 14:55 14 Jan 2007

Anyone ever used it? Any comments or criticisms?

Not tried it ,But if you can get better than this one click here a full defrag on mine in about 4 minutes, 15:06 14 Jan 2007

I only asked because it was on the PC Advisor DVD. I normally stick with the XP one ut this just caught my attention.

I notice quite a few people use the one you suggested though.

I also use buteman's suggestion - it's about four times faster than XP's equivalent. 15:12 14 Jan 2007

to me. I do most maintenance tasks when I'm not on the PC.

But Magical Defrag apparently does it in the background so you don't have to run it at all.

Thanks anyway, I'll give it a look.

Ashampoo products have always been good as far as I am concerned. I also have downloaded them from the PCAdvisor disc

Just ran it again, I dont have a lot on my computer, But done the full defrag in 3.5 minutes,I think this one is supposed to replace the existing one.

So does IOBit...:-)

I have been using Ashampoo Magic Defrag on both my computers for several months and it is great, install and forget it. It works when the machine is idle and stops when you start working. It uses very little processesor and I have not had to manually defrag since installing it. I would recomend it unreservedly.

I agree with Taurus, I installed it from the PCA DVD and I think it is great.I shall stay with it.I did try the Iobit one, but I had problems and I uninstalled it (In fairness I can't say that it was the real cause of the problems) 16:27 14 Jan 2007

for the response. I'll give it a try.
