O&O Defrag 19 Professional
O&O DEFRAG IS a powerful and highly configurable disk defragmentation package.
At first, the program looks much like any other defrag tool. Launch it, and you’ll be presented with a list of your drives. Selecting one displays the usual mosaic-style map of its file layout. Then, simply click Start and just watch as O&O Defrag reorganises your files to deliver the maximum possible performance.
This is just the start, though. Do you have multiple drives, for example? Select as many as you like and the program can defragment them all simultaneously.
You don’t have to use just the one particular defrag strategy, either. Instead, you can have your files organised by their filename, access date, last modified date and more – whatever best suits your needs. If that’s not enough, then you can set up an entirely customised layout scheme that optimises Windows, application files and user data to deliver the best possible system performance.
As you might have guessed by now, this probably isn’t the best choice for the PC novice. Even so, it’s not overly complex either. Once you’ve set O&O Defrag to work as you’d like, it will run mostly in the background, defragmenting your hard disk automatically as required, while you get on with other things. Because it’s so light on resources, and can be configured not to run at all if your system is busy or other heavy-duty programs are running, it’s unlikely to ever get in your way.
