∞ Drive Genius 3.1 adds Live Defrag

Prosoft Engineering on Tuesday released an update to its hard drive utility, Drive Genius, adding Live Defrag.

[ad#Google Adsense 300×250 in story]Typically, when you want to defragment your boot hard drive, you need to boot from the utilities DVD and then do the defrag. Live Defrag does away with that and allows you to defrag the boot drive without restarting.

“Booting from the DVD has long been one of the cumbersome steps involved to defrag,” said Greg Brewer, CEO of Prosoft Engineering. “Now users can simply install it as an application and efficiently begin improving the performance of their hard drives.”

More information on Drive Genius and the various utilities included in the package is available from the company’s Web site.
