Free Abelssoft JetDrive 5 Professional! [Limited time offer]

Software Description

The following is a description of Abelssoft JetDrive 5 Professional, as per the developer:

JetDrive – Feature Overview

JetDrive defragments your hard drive. It does a far better job than Windows Defrag and — depending upon the condition of your hard drive — can result in a 20% gain in performance.

Automatic or Manual

JetDrive defragments your hard drives manually or with an automatic process called AutoJet. Defragmentation couldn’t be easier.

Defragments your Registry

JetDrive defragments all hard drives, single files and even the Windows Registry with a special registry defragmentation algorithm.

Checks your Drives for Errors

JetDrive recognizes errors in your hard drives, and can even detect and fix errors automatically if you prefer.

Detailed Reports

JetDrive creates detailed reports of your hard drive defragmentastion process. It displays the current state in an easy to read 3D view and summarizes all operations.

dotTech Advice

JetDrive 5 Professional has two main features: Defragging hard drives (users are allowed to select specific partitions, if they don’t want to defrag them all) and defragging the registry. In addition to those main features it has four supplementary features: A scheduler for automating disk defrags, checking disks for errors, cleaning temporary files, and defragging “systemfiles”.

What impressed me about JetDrive is its flexibility for different types of users. JetDrive allows novices users to let JetDrive select what defragging settings to use and how best to optimize the process; at the same time, it allows advanced users – who want more control – the ability to customize the way defragging occur.

As a defragger JetDrive looks pretty good. It is able to do multiple different types of disk optimizations starting from a basic defrag to more advanced procedures such as sorting files by last date of access, location, or last change. Furthermore it has a scheduler allowing users to schedule defrags to happen at a specific time, whenever system is idle, or at Windows boot. And it has the ability to automatically shutdown computer after defragging has finished, which is very useful for users that plan on leaving defrags overnight. The one thing that irked me, however, was the fact that JetDrive dives right into defragmentation once you select all settings and tell it to start. It doesn’t provide any sort of analysis, prior to actual defragmentation, telling users “Your disk is fragmented by XXX and we will defrag XXX.” I find this to be very annoying because without such an analysis it is hard to judge if my drives actually need to be defragged and how long the defrag will take.

The registry defragger is a bit more basic than the disk defragger, not having very many enhanced options. It does, however, scan the registry to look for hives and provides a percentage for each hive which presumably means how fragmented that particular hive is. I say “presumably” because the program doesn’t explicitly state what this percentage is for. I am not much of a registry defrag fan so I avoided this feature outside of conducting the scan; aside from the initial scan, I can’t say more about it because I didn’t test it.

Similar to the lack-of-analyis-prior-to-defrag con I discussed above, the TempCleaner and Defragment Systemfiles features don’t provide any sort of analysis prior to cleaning temp files/defragging system files nor do they tell users exactly what files they are cleaning/defragging. (Which temp files are being cleaned? I have no idea!) Soon as you hit the buttons for TempCleaner and Defragment Systemfiles the processes start happening. We are just supposed to go on blind faith that JetDrive 5 Pro is cleaning the right temp files and defragging the right systemfiles — it doesn’t tell us what it is doing. Very annoying.

Aside from that, the only other major thing I noticed in my quick review is the error checking features of JetDrive 5 Pro appear to be nothing more than Window’s native checkdisk (chkdsk) function wrapped in a nice GUI. Go figure.

As a defragger JetDrive earns points in my book. It is easy for novices, who can let JetDrive decide what to do, while still providing advanced users the flexibility of customizing their service. If you are looking for a good defragger, JetDrive is a viable candidate. Personally, though, I find it very annoying JetDrive does not provide users with analysis results, showing users what needs to be dragged and what doesn’t; I want to be able to know what JetDrive will do before it does it. For that reason I am sticking to my all-time defragging favorite: Auslogics Disk Defrag. Not only is Auslogics Disk Defrag freeware, but it is one of the best defraggers I have ever used: Quick, easy to use, and excellent performance. Auslogics doesn’t defrag the registry (it only defrags hard drives) but honestly defragging the registry is something most users don’t want to mess with anyway.

Lastly, before we get to the Freebie Details, take note JetDrive comes in two editions — Professional and Ultimate. The following chart depicts the differences between the two:

Freebie Details

There is no information on if it is time limited offer nor is there information on if you can install/reinstall at a later date. My guess, however, is this is a time limited offer, hence why I marked this as a limited time offer in the title; I just don’t know how long this will be available. So grab this while you can, if you want it. The program is in English even though this is a German promotion.

    @Seamus McSeamus: You are welcome!

    @ColinA: Erm, not me. Sorry. I uninstalled the program after I was done evaluating it. :-P

    @David Yoon: I don’t know what to tell you bro. I don’t know why it wasn’t working for you earlier but it definitely is expired now. May I suggest you give a freeware a try, such as Auslogics Disk Defrag or the many other freewares mentioned by other dotTechies above?

  2. Seamus McSeamus

    Thanks for the offer, Ashraf, as always, but this is a pass for me.

    I have used MyDefrag for years now with no complaints, although I have recently tried Auslogics Defrag and was impressed with it as well.

    @tejas: Ditto. Same for me.

    @keith: You are welcome!

    @chuck (detailer): Thanks for the feedback! I am sure it will help others decide if they want this or not.

    @NickK: You are welcome! And thanks for the suggestion.

    @Coltel Jean-Pierre: Well now, I didn’t expect dotTech to help people learn English but, hey, that’s a good thing, right? I must warn you, though: My English is far from perfect.

    @williamBz: I’ve heard of Puran but never used it myself. Thanks for the suggestion!

    @PapyLuc: Talk in English, please. It’s not that I don’t respect other languages but this is an English blog and we should speak in English so others can understand.

    @hatman: From what I hear Defraggler isn’t the best defragger out there; but if you like it, more power to ya’.

    @leland: Interesting, never heard of that one… thanks for pointing it out!

    @Mike M: “JDLite” — does that work for this promo?

    @bill: Are you sure it isn’t registered for you already? There doesn’t seem to be any “About” menu to look under but my guess is if you aren’t promoted with a “this is a trial” like message then it is registered for you.

    Also, how did you get the code? The window where you must input the code is the same as the window you register to get the code.

    @Mike M: Interesting. Where is that quote from?

    @Mike M: Yeah, the link did look odd. Thanks for the update.

    @Raven: Are you sure it isn’t registered already? As I told Bill above, it may already be registered for you. Are you getting any sort of “this is a trial” message when running the program?

    @bill:
    [QUOTE] JetDrive will automatically ask you for this license code on its first start. If this is not the case, then JetDrive has already recognized the code during the generation. In any case please save your license code at a safe place.[/QUOTE]

    I personally use Raxco PerfectDisk and have for many years. However when looking at free options there are many quite good choices. For free I recommend Puran Defrag as seen at http://majorgeeks.com/Puran_Defrag_Free_Edition_d6360.html This is a nice tool though I know from experience it is not as fast as Auslogics but that is because it is more thorough in my experience. Puran has many options and can defrag the system files at boot if wanted. Overall it is a very nice tool.

    Another tool that gives you the ability to defrag single files like one of the options from JetDrive 5 Ultimate is WinContig at http://wincontig.mdtzone.it/en/index.htm This can be a handy tool for occasional use.

    Thanks for Review. I use Defraggler and I’m happy with it.

    Most defrag tools only allow you to defrag an entire drive. Defraggler lets you specify one or more files, folders, or the whole drive to defragment.

    When Defraggler reads or writes a file, it uses the exact same techniques that Windows uses. Using Defraggler is just as safe for your files as using Windows.

    At a glance, you can see how fragmented your hard drive is. Defraggler’s drive map shows you blocks that are empty, not fragmented, or needing defragmentation.

    * Give your hard drive a quick touch-up with Quick Defrag
    * Organizes empty disk space to further prevent fragmentation
    * Defragment while you sleep – and wake up with a faster PC. Set Defraggler to run daily, weekly or monthly
    * Full Windows OS and Multi-lingual support
    * Boot time defrag of system files
    * Supports 37 major languages

    Defraggler is made by Piriform, the company that also brought you CCleaner and Recuva, so is completely free!

    Bonne nouvelle pour les utilisateurs de langue française : sélectionnez “English” lors de l’installation et le programme sera installé … en français. Semble moins rapide qu’ Auslogics cependant.
    Merci DotTech

    Interesting but seems to be slower than Auslogics DiskDefrag whitch is … free.

    Thanks DotTech!
    Glad to read you near every day. It’s also a good way to keep my english up-to-date. Thanks again.
    Hi from France.

  9. chuck (detailer)

    Tried this about a year ago.They should call it Snail Drive-slow as hell and did a lousy job.My advice-go with Auslogics,and a simple defrag.The optimization option (on most all defraggers) always screws up the pre-fetch and layout.ini.

    “It doesn’t provide any sort of analysis, prior to actual defragmentation,
    the TempCleaner and Defragment Systemfiles features don’t provide any sort of analysis ”

    That’s a deal breaker for me.
