Laplink® Software promises to improve system performance with launch of Laplink Defrag, its new disk defragmenter program for Windows®

Newly added and modified files can be analyzed and defragmented whenever they are not being accessed. In effect, Laplink Defrag is always making sure your hard disk is performing at its peak

Laplink® Software announced today that it has released its premier defragmentation program - Laplink Defrag. Based on award-winning technology already on the market in Europe, Laplink Defrag brings innovation, more customization, and greater efficiency compared to the competition.

"Laplink Defrag packs file fragments more quickly and more securely back together to optimize greater hard drive functionality. Plus, users can select from fully automated to individually customized settings - depending on the specific needs of the user," said Randy Clark, Laplink's COO.

The innovative background monitoring function also helps to prevent fragmentation at the source. This delivers more consistent defragmentation monitoring and keeps large defragmentation sessions to a minimum.

"Newly added and modified files can be analyzed and defragmented whenever they are not being accessed. In effect, Laplink Defrag is always making sure your hard disk is performing at its peak," explained Clark.

Standing out from the competition, some key features include: automatic protection from heavy defragmentation (background defragmentation), targeted defragmentation (by right-clicking hard disks and partitions as well as individual folders or files), file status display (which provides information about the number of the most heavily affected files and their level of fragmentation), and optimal speed and memory consumption (which results in Laplink Defrag performing fast even while demanding considerably little memory).

Laplink Defrag comes in three versions - Professional, Server, and Workstation, a network-capable version which can be installed with or without a user interface.

More Laplink Defrag Features:

  • Significant speed of defragmentation over competitors
  • Small system footprint for low memory consumption
  • Optimized for 32 and 64-bit versions of Windows Vista, Windows XP, and even Windows 7
  • Automatic background monitoring for ongoing system optimization
  • Right-click defragmentation of individual folders and files as well as hard disks and partitions
  • Automatic configuration after installation - no further involvement is necessary
  • Processing even enormous amounts of data - in the terabyte range - is no problem
  • Protection from excessive fragmentation (that normally builds over time) through background monitoring and defragmentation
  • Defragmentation of individual directories and files through the context menu
  • Optimized File Status View and enhanced Block View
  • Wizard for regular and automated defragmentation
  • Five different defragmentation methods - including OneButtonDefrag (for simple setting up of automatic defragmentation)
  • ActivityGuardPro keeps the system load balanced while the PC is in use (when a user logs off, Laplink Defrag resumes functionality)
  • Support of all Windows drives
  • Optional: ScreenSaver mode that defragments the hard drive while the screen saver is active
