The app’s Windows 8-esq interface is good to work with, taking up your full screen. It uses a similar bold looking interface, and the layout for its options is almost the same too. You are able to swipe left or right on a touch screen interface, spin the mouse wheel or drag your mouse left or right to view other areas.
The defragging works in the same way that a standard defrag tool operates: simply choose a drive; analyze it, launch either a quick or full defrag, and then sit back as the usual drive map shows the progress as it happens.
Auslogics Disk Defrag Touch performs very well, even using the ‘Optimize Programs’ section. This scans and defragments files that relate to particular apps only. If you like to tweak your registry defray tools to just how you like them, then this app doesn’t disappoint. You can set it to delete temporary files before defragging, thereby speeding up the process. You also have the option to skip large file fragments. This improves defrag speed without making much of a difference to your final system performance.
It comes with a useful scheduler, so you can run everything automatically, daily, weekly, monthly, or even when your computer is idle.
Overall, Auslogics Disk Defrag Touch is well designed, resembling Windows 8 in almost all aspects. The full screen interface is a tad irksome when used with a mouse though, but it works really well on a touch screen computer. It is relatively lightweight, consumes hardly any system resources and can be navigated by users of all levels of expertise.
