Defraggler v2.0 Beta

Today marks a milestone in the Defraggler product history. After nearly a year of development and testing, we're proud to release the first test version of the new Defraggler v2.0!

This new release pushes the capabilities of Defraggler far beyond any other free defragmentation tool, by offering complete offline defrag during the boot process with full OS support.

Additionally the UI has been improved with a new Drive Map and customizations. We've also rearchitected the internal defrag processes to make it faster and more efficient!

This is a Beta version, so we don't recommend it for general usage just yet. We're confident it's bug free, but please only use it on test systems until we release the final build. Don't worry this will be in weeks, not months. :)

Download Defraggler v2.0 beta now from our Download Center.

Please post any bug reports to our forum.
