This app is fine, but it will be great if you offer a quick defrag.
I bought several licences of Magical Defrag for myself and family members. This was based on Snapfile rating and other good experiences with other Ashampoo programs. However, I was a dismayed when I looked at the fragmentation levels after a few months. Even with lots of no-load time on the CPU, all machines had fragmentation well beyond anything accepatble. I uninstalled this as it was better to use another defrag program. Too bad, but this does not do the auto-defrag as stated. Maybe a new version will be better, but use a demo/trial before buying this.
Magic Defrag does its duty to slowly but surely and silently defrag in the background. But it is not suitable for an urgent need to defrag. While it successfully prevent disks from fragmenting, it takes several days to initially completely defrag an hard drive very fragmented. It is also not very efficient at optimizing space, that is at forcing files to occupy the first half of the hard disk, the most efficient half.
I am floored that someone else did not think of this long ago. I have purchased this app for multiple pc's in my home. How I know it works so good? I used windows defrag to analyze the drive before installing magic defrag, then analyzed a day after installing it. Perfectly defraged drives, all the time. I never have to take time out to defrag with the windows app. Also has a light footprint on the resources which is something I am very picky about. The only con to this is that the company has been nagging me to buy their photo commander app ever since i bought this one.
