Defraggler can optimize your system performance by defragmenting hard drives. The application has a very nice interface that poses no difficulties for any kind of user. Fortunately, it supports both NTFS and FAT file systems. Besides, it is integrated into Windows Explorer contextual menu. In relation to this, I absolutely enjoyed the possibility of analyzing and defragmenting a specific folder or file, which is not commonly available from other similar tools.

The application has a nice interface in which the main area is occupied by a graphical display of your disk contents in the form of small squares. Then, according to the color of a square, you can know the current status of the files stored on the corresponding disk area. Besides, you can also access a list of the files, search for specific ones, monitor disk health as well as study disk usage statistics and performance. Two types of actions are available: full and quick defragmentation.

According to its developers, Defraggler supports defragmenting solid-state disks. However, you should bear in mind that this practice may reduce your disk’s lifespan while having a very limited impact on performance.

In general, Defraggler is a great substitute for Windows built-in defragmenter. It is much more attractive, efficient and versatile. The fact that it is developed by Piriform, a company that develops other successful and proven applications, is definitely a guarantee of its quality. And besides, you can have most of this at no cost.
