As for boot-defrag, if the software runs from HDD, it is not boot-defrag, it has to be run from USB/DVD.

i have a C drive ssd. I'll only be defragging my spinning data drive, so i don't think there's a need for those boot options.

I tried visiting 1lrl.com and showed me a directory, I click on the 360secure and the warning popped out. It's their trick to fool you to download their pups

Boot time defragmentation defragments files that can't be moved while Windows is running by defragging the disk before boot. Normal defrag is usually enough, but you could maximize performance by doing this.

The Windows Prefetch makes programs and files load faster. It's like a cache for Windows. Optimization Algorithm that Speeds Up Access to Frequently Used Files refers to a feature that identifies frequently used programs by analyzing all of the files in the Prefetch and moves them to a faster part of the disk.

The last one might honestly just be nonsense to make the list look longer, or is referring a feature that puts pictures, videos, etc. at slower parts of the disk and programs at faster parts of the disk, although it's too vague to give a clear answer about.

I used the "free" version for a while, and i appreciated the "defrag and optimize" option. The thing would defrag, and then take files and move them as high on the platter as possible to make faster read. Is this in the Pro version too?
