Latest Norton Speed Disk scattered my files all over my drive and caused massive fragmentation!
I downloaded the current version of Norton Utilities from the official Norton Download Trials website two days ago and tried it out for two days, then decided to uninstall it, because of the fact that Norton Speed Disk scattered my files all over the drive and caused massive fragmentation after a complete boot time defrag and a standard defrag in Windows 10!
I used Auslogics Disk Defrag and the built-in Windows defrag to only analyze the drive to determine the extent of the fragmentation caused by Norton Speed Disk since Norton Speed Disk is very vague in displaying it's results!
I've searched the internet for technical information regarding the working of Norton Utilities and couldn't find any results, I've uninstalled Norton Utilities and I am currently testing Raxco's PerfectDisk, and I must say - both Raxco (PerfectDisk) and Condusiv (Diskeeper) has a lot of whitepapers on their website and features technologies that prevents fragmentation from occurring in real-time! Thus far I am impressed with Raxco's PerfectDisk!
I feel that Norton Utilities have become obsolete and apart from the redesigned UI, not much improvements went into the software itself! It's old and outdated and doesn't provide the end user with any useful statistics or detailed results like competing software out there!
