Run Disk Defragmentation Real Time to Improve Windows PC Performance

Microsoft Windows PCs are having disk defragmentation application (Start ==> Accessories ==> System Tools ==> Disk Defragmenter) pre-installed on any Windows OS edition, but that is not having real time defragmentation feature. If you want to have 100% defragmented disk any time on your computer, you will need an application which keeps defragmenting the disk real time.

Here is the screenshot of Disk Defragmenter available in Windows,

[ad id='9' style='float:left;margin:10px 10px 10px 0']If you are new to “Disk Defragmentation” feature, I would like to let you know that when data say files keep coming on hard disk of computer, that may be stored in fragmented manner where disk will have to rotate for more to read at the time of fetching that data. If the disk is defragmented, it will take less time for the reader to read the data from the disk.

Here we are talking about the real time defragmentation process, which helps in having a high performance disk. Auslogics Disk Defrag is a free to download disk defragmentation application which is having a feature of real time disk defragmentation. It also includes features like defragmentation scheduling which is also available in default disk defragmenter available in Windows XP, Vista or Windows 7.

    I think the safest free defragmenter would be the Windows defragger itself. If opting for a third party tool, I think the really good fully automatic commercial defraggers are a better alternative as there is no need to schedule or run the defrag manually, they defrag in low free space and also dont skip large fragmented files. A nice intuitive GUI is an added advantage thats seriously missing in the latest win defragger.

    I like piriform.com defraggler. It can defrag individual files instead of doing every thing at one go. I have used it for a long time with good result.
