Default Optimizing with Auslogic disk defrag very slow?

Hi,

Just wondering if it should take a long time (as in over 9 hours and still only 68% done) to optimize with Auslogic Disk Defrag Free (current version) a 230 Gb partition which only contains 33 Gb of data?

While on the topic, is it wise or unwise to defrag an image file created with Macrium Reflect?

Thanks.

PS. Maybe I should have used UltraDefrag instead.

Optimizing finally completed at around 9.5 hours. Installed UltraDefrag and checked with its Full Optimization option and confirmed that AusLogic did indeed perform the task.

But why does it take so long?

Overall optimisation speed would rely on both the efficiency of the program and the amount of background activity by other elements of the system.

Personally, I have found MyDefrag to be the best drive optimiser.

Optimization is way slower than defragmentation. If defragmentation is adviced only once every week or over a fortnight, then optimization is needed to be done only once a month. Moreover different defrag utilities performs optimization in different ways and using different algorithms.
