Defrag 19 Professional
If you spend a lot of time on your PC, slow system and program
starts or system crashes while playing can be very frustrating. Peri-
odic defragmentation often works wonders in bringing new life to
The brand new in-built O&O DiskCleaner searches for and removes tem-
porary and unnecessary les that are taking up memory and increasing
fragmentation. O&O DiskCleaner also increases the security of your data,
as private content (e.g. Thumbs.db, copies of documents, drafts of emails,
Dumps) will no longer be kept as copies in unnecessary system les.
Lifetime Performance Statistics
You can now see in detail the lifetime performance statistics of O&O Defrag,
from the moment you bought the program to the current moment. These
statistics show you just what O&O Defrag is doing for your PC, and exactly
what it has already achieved so far!
Benets of a clearly laid out hard disk
Whenever it saves data, Windows scatters le fragments all over the
hard disk and this slows down access times considerably. Defrag-
mentation reverses this by rearranging data and speeding up access
times dramatically. This not only saves the user time, it also reduces
wear on hard disks and extends their life expectancy. Defragmenta-
tion can even make the difference if you lose important data becau-
se chances of full recovery are better on a defragmented disk. Why?
After defragmentation, it’s easier for data recovery software such as
O&O DiskRecovery to restore les when they’re not scattered across
multiple areas of a hard disk.
Automatic background defragmentation
Automatic defragmentation can be congured with just three clicks and
optimizes your disks behind the scenes with no negative impact on your
computer’s performance. You can set O&O Defrag to run defragmenta-
tion at a certain level of fragmentation, on particular days of the week,
or whenever your screensaver is being used. Defragmentation can be
paused and resumed whenever you want because O&O Defrag automa-
tically recognizes where defragmentation was interrupted.
We recommend manual defragmentation for PCs that are being used
heavily because only a user can decide when the time is right to give up
the performance needed for running defragmentation. On computers
using video editing or graphics applications, O&O Defrag can be con-
gured to not start automatic optimization while certain programs are
running. The default settings in O&O Defrag are more than adequate
for ordinary desktop PCs running mainly internet or ofce applications.
O&O Defrag is also perfect for notebooks. Whenever an external po-
wer supply is disconnected, O&O Defrag automatically goes into pause
