"Always-on," background processing defragmentation is great in theory. And in some cases, it's great in practice. For users that have periods of activity on their PCs and laptops along with times when their computer is not in use, it can make a lot of sense. The same can be said for servers. Although, when you get to heavy-use, 24x7, mission-critical, non-stop use servers, finding any meaningful idle time - or any idle time at all - can be a fruitless venture. That's why PerfectDisk provides the flexibility to schedule the defrag of drives when background scheduling is not an option. And there are plenty of times when it is not an option.
But you know that.
You also know that background defragmentation does take some resources. It's doing something. So that takes some of your computer's resources. But even when "automatic," background processing makes sense, it doesn't make sense to keep using these "idle" resources when there's nothing to really accomplish. After all the leaves in your yard are raked, you don't keep raking do you? Well, you might if you weren't disposing the leaves but just raking them back and forth all over your yard...
What if your defragmentation software was smart enough to just stop background defragmentation when a drive was completely defragmented and free space consolidated. Of course, that would only be achieved if there was an optimization strategy in the first place, so there was the largest piece of contiguous free space possible.
Work done. Take a rest. No more resources used, invisible or not. Yard raked, nothing but green grass. Sit back and have that beer or lemonade.
Sometimes invisible is good. Sometimes it's better to be smarter.
It's a Perfect 10. Coming soon.
