Defraggler Gets 'Remaining Defrag Time' Feature
Article by George Norman

Piriform, the company behind popular applications such as CCleaner and Recuva, has just recently announced that it updated its defragmenting tool Defraggler to version 2.09. The new version comes with better support for Microsoft’s upcoming Windows 8 operating system and with a very interesting new feature – remaining defrag time.

Until now you had no idea when Defraggler would finish its job. This is no longer the case. The latest version of Defraggler estimates how much time it will take it to complete a defragmentation task. I’m running Defraggler 2.09 right now and it’s telling me that it will be done in about two hours.


Defraggler comes with several other new bits and pieces. Here are the release notes, as provided by Piriform, privately owned UK software developer dedicated to creating top quality applications for Windows and Mac:
  • Added Defrag Time Remaining.
  • Improved formatting of Smart data.
  • Smart data can now be copied.
  • Updated support for McAfee Endpoint Encryption.
  • Performance improvement on Windows 8.
  • Improved accuracy of SSD detection.
  • Improved unicode support for export file list.
  • Fixed issued that caused the Benchmark button to disappear.
  • Benchmarking info is now included in the export file list.
  • Improved usability in Options dialog.
  • Added Latvian language.
  • Minor bug fixes and tweaks.

If you’re already using Defraggler, you will receive an update prompt the next time you run the application (assuming of course that you did not uncheck the “automatically check for updates” option).

If you’re not using Defraggler, I strongly advise you to start doing so. It is a free, easy to use, and properly good defragmenting tool for Windows. You can get the latest version of Defraggler straight from the developer by clicking here. You won’t look back at the default defragmenting tool in Windows after you get Defraggler.
