If you're running a PC that doesn't have a solid state drive (or SSD), you're liking going to come across slowdowns if you have not defragmented your drive in a while.
Power Defragmenter is a free program which offers an alternative way to defrag your hard drives. It is optimized to deal with large HDDs and works by reducing the fragmentation of files on your drive. Power Defragmenter will organize your data in a way which provides quicker access by the operating system.
As a portable application, it is not necessary to install Power Defragmenter and it may be run without installation. Furthermore, you can also place it on a USB drive or memory card and run it on most systems which need to be defragmented.
The application itself was originally designed for older versions of Windows but no worries, it also works fine on newer versions of Windows like Windows 8 and Windows 7.
The application provides for four different modes including Defragment file(s), Defragment folder(s), Defragment disk and TriplePass Disk Defragmentation. The last one should run over the disk three times to catch anything that was missed in the previous pass. Once you've selected your option, the application will launch in command-line mode which you can safely minimize.
Overall, Power Defragmenter is a fast and free alternative disk defragger which is powerful and effectively improves the performance of systems with traditional hard drives.
