I give Auslogics Disk Defrag Free an overall score of 3.5 out of 5 – Auslogic Disk Defrag Free is a good Disk Defrag program but no where near the best. (Auslogic Disk Defrag Free can offers up whole number percentages such as 1% hard drive fragmentation. When other disk defrager programs can offer up a little more accurate to the last percentage point such as a read out of 1.55% overall disk fragmentation rate. Again a very minor issue seeing it is freeware.)
Auslogic also seems to always round up the nearest whole percentage. Which often over inflates the need to defrag your hard drive more often. Then is actually really needed.
