Ashampoo Magical Defrag v1.11 :
In the course of time Windows takes longer and longer to find data on your hard disk. This happens because files get split up into more and more fragments stored in different places all over the disk. Finding and reading these fragments takes much longer than accessing a file that is all stored in the same place. Ashampoo Magical Defrag runs in the background as a service, defragmenting when necessary to keep the hard disk tidy. The great thing about this is that the program manages it without 'stealing' any processor power from the user. Ashampoo Magical Defrag only activates when enough unused resources are available and stops immediately whenever the user does anything that requires more computer capacity--when a program is started or used.
