Defraggler Update Focuses on Speed
Article by George Norman
On 23 May 2011
Back in April I was reporting that the development team at Piriform, the privately owned UK software developer dedicated to creating top quality applications for Windows, updated Defraggler to version 2.04 and that the update brought with it a nice new feature – the option to shut down the system after Defraggler finished a scheduled task.

Today I am glad to report that Piriform once again updated Defraggler, this time to version 2.05. This updated focuses on one thing and one thing alone – speed. Defraggler version 2.05 comes with improved defrag speed of large files and improved drive analysis speed.

“With new builds of our products coming out each month, we begin each release cycle discussing what features we need to focus on. This month it was speed! So drive scanning and large file defrag should have some noticeable improvements in build v2.05,” said Piriform in a blog post.

If you would like to get Defraggler, you can grab it straight from Piriform here.

If this is the first time you hear about Defraggler, let me put things in perspective for you. Defraggler is Piriform’s defragmenting application. Offered free of charge to Windows users for personal use, it is a properly good (and portable) application that will rapidly and efficiently defrag the entire hard drive of just individual files.

Defragmenting your hard drive is one of the tasks you have to perform if you want your computer to run smoothly and efficiently. When data becomes fragmented, the pieces of a file become scattered and broken up; the defragmentation process rearranges all this data so that all parts of a file are grouped closed together, contiguously. You could use the default defragmenting client offered by the Windows operating system, or you could use Defraggler, a 3rd party developed application that certainly trumps the default client.
