Best Disk Defragment software i can get for free

 Share

Go to solution Solved by Shammikit,

I used Auslogics Disk Defrag  which was recommended by my friend and did the defragment. It improved R6 loading times massively

i want to improve my loading speeds when playing Rainbow 6. i dont have an SSD and cannot afford one atm. One of my friends told me to defragment the disks as it improved his loading speeds and i can seem him loading very quickly to matches in R6. i have already tried the built in Windows one but it wasnt much of an improvement. My friend suggested me the software he used which was: Auslogics Disk Defrag. Not sure if its a reliable one. would like to know if it is gud or any other suggestions. Dont want to take any risks and F up my HDD.

Defragler is the best IMO.

To the best of my knowledge if the built-in defragment tool didn't do you a whole lot of good then an after market one won't do you much better. Part of the issue is locating the files. The other issue is the disks speed. If your drive is only 5400RPM then you're not going to see much more if any more of a bump.

The built in windows defrag is good enough to test your theory of improving your loading times. If you don't notice any improvement from that then your issue is not with fragmented data and better programs will not help. 

 

Just FYI a 120Gb SSD is $30 at the moment. That's less than the price of the game you are trying to play. Sure 120Gb is not a lot but is enough for your OS and game.

The built in is horrible, It says 0% fragmentation but when i use Defragler there are still tons of fragmentation files.

And i could feel it especially when gaming because my games files are stored in the HDD.

 

Drive RPM does affect but its not what you might think because when say your games has a lot of fragmentation, The gameplay would be very choppy almost feels like a rubberbanding lag and the texture just pop in very late.

They are much cheaper than that now. These are the cheapest SSD options for 240 and 480gb. These are not a super great brand, but you can generally pay about 10-15 more and get a solid name brand drive for these sizes.

Defraggler is OK.  I like and prefer O&O Defrag  : https://www.oo-software.com/en/products/oodefrag click on Try Now  ... it's not free, but there's a 30 day trial version which will work just fine for your needs.

 

Also how much ram do you have? depending on that, you could actually create a ram disk and copy at least a part of the game in memory and have it load from there  (copy files to ramdisk, use junction from systinternals suite (microsoft applications) to redirect game folder to ramdisk , and then game loads from ram instead

 

@AngryBeaver his profile says Sri Lanka .. things may not be cheap there or customs/shipping there could be expensive. Not everyone has so much choice.

I know with HDD's latency is much more of a factor when seeking information making defragmenting desirable. Still defragmentation is only a necessity as you filled up and delete fairly large sections of the drive over a period of months (for the average user). Over this span of time most people would upgrade their equipment but as OP said finances don't allow it.

 

I'm not certain how big of an improvement they expect to get but unless the computer is downright refusing to do much of anything then I don't expect a good proper defrag to show too much of an in game performance bump.

 

My argument isn't to say don't do it at all. My argument is simply to say don't expect a super performance bump after the defrag.

Drive RPM does affect but its not what you might think because when say your games has a lot of fragmentation, The gameplay would be very choppy almost feels like a rubberbanding lag and the texture just pop in very late.

I just love when I type up a huge post go to post it and get kicked to the mainpage then come back to see it didn't even save the text for it.... Sigh. So here goes the second one which will be much less detailed lol.

 

OP is this system info accurate? If so I can suggest a few things.

 

First off the GPU is going to struggle for games. So some of the issue you are having might be FPS related and not drive related. Second you have only a single drive so even with little fragmentation OS functions are going on in the background which will eat up your disk usage. A HDD is reliant on seek time and the more actions going on the more it can be affected in a big way.

 

Now another problem is with your ram. Rainbow six siege for example can load textures in to ram, if you do not have enough ram it will have to put these items in to virtual ram which is on your hard drive. That causes problems because it is much slower to be accessed and often causes fps dips, micro stutters, or images popping in much later than everything else.

 

To touch on fragmentation. Fragmentation occurs naturally when you move files, delete stuff, or even install something new. There are also going to be files that are large enough fragmentation cannot be prevented. Fragmentation is just a file that isn't being stored in consecutive spaces on the disk. It isn't until the disk is getting heavily fragmented that you will see a drastic decrease in performance. Also since your drive is only 500gb it has less space to store items consecutively and that also affects the size of the files that cannot be prevented from being fragmented.

There would be no PERFORMANCE BUMP from defragmenting drives for gaming most of the times, It would mostly fix stuttering that could occur because of the fragmentation files.

In the end his friend didn't really do much to help him. His friend is the one that suggest it was because of a fragmented drive. The problem is the OP's machine is just dated and will struggle to run those titles. I mean the sad truth is he needs to drop a few hundred bucks for a decent system. He would see a big performance bump from even a 2200g build.  Like the following(Sorry love playing with pcpartspicker) So if OP can start saving about 350 he can have a decent little machine to play on. The good news is the holidays are on us and he could ask for it outright or for the money to go towards it. This also leaves him the option to upgrade to a dedicated card in the future as he needs more performance. For example in the states a used 970 can be found for around 100 and a 980 for 150 or less most of the time.

Also if OP doesn't play but a handful of games he could just upgrade to a single 500GB SSD for more performance. As it stands though he would have enough room on the SSD for the OS and 1-3 games. Then he could use the HDD for storage of less IO intensive games or just files in general.

Here in our country everything is stupidly expensive. These days our political situation is also not gud so the economy is also bad and it has also hit the exchange rate hard. So importing from sites like amazon is also not an option as some items dont ship here or the shipping cost is 2-3 times more than the price of the item.

Also if OP doesn't play but a handful of games he could just upgrade to a single 500GB SSD for more performance. As it stands though he would have enough room on the SSD for the OS and 1-3 games. Then he could use the HDD for storage of less IO intensive games or just files in general.

Im sorry, those are not the specs i have now. im playing in a laptop i bought. Those specs are from my desktop PC. I must update that.

 

The spec of laptop im playing R6 is:

RAM: 8GB

CPU: Intel Core I5 8250U

GPU: nvidia 940MX

HDD:1TB (5400RPM i think)

 

My friend has a 6th gen i7, nvidia 840M, 8gb of ram and also 1TB of HDD and most probably same as my HDD speed. His laptop is around 3 years old. He has clogged up alot of files in his drive and has very few free space remaining and still manages to load to the matches in R6 in few seconds while mine take about a minute. My friend said it was like that for him too until he defragmented. We have similar internet speeds too ping in game is around 40ms, download speed as shown by speed test is 20mbps download and 1.5mbps upload.

I used Auslogics Disk Defrag  which was recommended by my friend and did the defragment. It improved R6 loading times massively
