Ashampoo Magical Defrag 3 is a file defragmentation tool that is designed for the windows operating system. Windows includes a defragmentation tool but it is usually slow in performing drive defragmentation and lacks features that are otherwise found in third party programs. Ashampoo Magical Defrag is a set-and-forget type of program that once installed runs a defragmentation service in the background and starts drive defragmentation whenever the system is idle. This feature is accompanied by a desktop screensaver that shows the current defragment status.
Magical Defrag 3 can also be used to start drive defragmentation on demand. The on demand tool allows you to select drives that you want to defrag. The tool is intelligent and by default only selects the mechanical drives that are available on the system. As you probably know, SSDs do not gain performance due to file defragmentation, which is why the tool automatically deselects them.
File defragmentation can also be set to run on a periodic schedule using jobs. You can edit the default job or create new jobs on your own. Advanced job settings provide full control over when defragment should run. For instance, you can set not to run defragment if the system is on battery mode, full screen mode, performing a print operation, and the following system activity is more than the specified limit: CPU activity, I/O activity, page activity.
