why no updates to Defraggler in a year?


Melchior

Recommended Posts

v2.22.995 (22 May 2018)

I wonder why Piriform has not released any updates to Defraggler since that date?

About 2 years now, I think it has been abandoned.

@Himeko @Melchior:Not abandoned.  Quite the contrary, the version of Defraggler that is used as part of the CCleaner Cloud business product gets updated on a fairly regular basis.  Plan was to fold those changes back into the consumer desktop product at the end of last year - but the release freeze we had bumped out the timeline.  With 100x the users, CCleaner is always going to get more attention that Defraggler - but we're still looking to get a Defraggler update out later this year.

Just out of curiosity, what update are you looking for?   What feature are you missing?  Defraggler works fine for me unless I am overlooking something.  Also, why do you run it every day?  Modern HDDs shouldn't need that unless you are running a FAT file system.  Running every day is probably putting unnecessary strain on your drive.

for updates the usual bug fixes etc...

Piriform said they have been updating Defraggler for the cloud version for their business customers.. but have left us free users out in the cold... :(

I guess what I am asking is what bug are you looking for to be resolved?  What isn't working?

the well % gauge for completion of a defrag be it quick or full is not very accurate and never reaches 100% completion..

for a single file defrag (which is one of my favorite features) it usual reaches 45% or so.. and around 70% if I am quick defraging a lot more files..

It seems to be working fine other wise.. it hasn't corrupted my system or caused it to crash, so all is good there..

 

well whatever other improvements they could possible think to make to it..

This and this for instance — definitely severe issues that definitely need to be fixed.

Defraggler works fine for me unless I am overlooking something.

See above. Huge shortcomings with “sparse” files (an issue I experienced and reported in detail two years ago) and with NTFS-compressed files (I didn't experience this one first-hand but it would be consistent with what I observed, and I sure don't want to see the result of such a mess).

Modern HDDs shouldn't need that unless you are running a FAT file system.  Running every day is probably putting unnecessary strain on your drive.

One thing that is quite common and that can dramatically increase fragmentation, thus significantly reduce performance, is downloading large files simultaneously. I use a program which allows to download videos from various catch-up TV services, I used to download several such videos simultaneously, until I discovered that it was causing a massive fragmentation, even with a large amount of free space (each file having thousands of fragments — that would be prevented if the program could download one file at a time and queue the others, or pre-allocate the required space, but it currently allows neither), and had a lot of trouble recovering such files after a HDD failure (read the whole story here).
