PerfectDisk Free Defrag

It has been a while since they released the free version but still, i haven't covered it till now.
PerfectDisk Free Defrag doesn't offer any advanced bells and whistles of its bigger brothers (Home or Professional) like OptiWrite which is a fragmentation prevention mechanism, StealthPatrol which keeps defrgamenting online even while you're working without any performance hit, no advanced tweaks, settings or other advanced features.
However, it offers Daily or Weekly defrag schedule, Raxco's patented placement algorithm called SMARTPlacement, normal quick defrag and data consolidation for SSD drives. It also comes with Boot-time defrag feature to keep your pagefile and hibernation files defragmented.
So, bottom line, it's not really that bad for a free program. It certainly offers way more than Windows integrated defragmenter which is not bad either, but clearly lacks few things (like boot defrag and good placement algorithm). Plus i totally hate it with Windows defrag that you don't have a clue how long it will take. This is also nicely covered through a visual drive map and % completed progress bar. Which is nice considering how common is such feature these days...
