Thanks

This for a paid solution.

For a free one, I prefer Auslogics too.

Using Defraggler here as well. Sometimes it takes a little bit of time but it does the job.

I rarely even defrag anymore, the benefits on a storage drive are minimal at best, even if you have a lot of games on it. If a mechanical is still your system drive, it's a different story of course.

PerfectDisk - set it and forget it, auto defrags everything, including on-the-fly prevention of fragmentation.
