Keep your hard drive running at top specs with this Windows utility.
If your microprocessor is the brain of your PC, then its hard drive is definitely its heart. In order to keep your PC running at peak proficiency, you need to keep your hard drive running well. This is one of the main reasons why I like applications like DiskFresh. It’s a hard drive utility for Windows.
DiskFresh is a powerful disk optimization tool. It can inform you if there are damaged or bad sectors on the drive, so you can determine the right time to replace the disk, as well as insure that the content is in the right spot for optimal access. Unlike other tools, it does the bulk of its work as a background task, and it doesn’t interfere with priority tasks.
DiskFresh is a very simple app. As you can see from its UI, there’s not a lot to it. This can be seen as either a pro or a con. Its simple, so it doesn’t waste a lot of resources on eye candy or other information. Unfortunately, its stark display lacks any kind of useful information on fragmentation or other disk usage.
Its biggest plus is that it can work completely in the background and doesn’t take away resources from active tasks.
