It is the successor of JkDefrag (but unfortunately no longer open source), completely rewritten and widely improved:

No relevant registry entries, no files outside its folder (tested in Sandboxie).

If you feel overwhelmed by the new scripting approach of MyDefrag4 (like me) you'll definitely need MyDefragGui (successor of JKDefragGUI).

Someone know why there isn't an official portable version of MyDefrag?

So, since it can be portable, shouldn't we add it to the database?

Also, is it better that the old JK Defrag?
and how these two compare to defraggler?
i'm looking for a defragmenter, and i'd like to know what you think...

The last time I checked, it writes settings in registry.

These 3 software (Defraggler, JkDefrag, MyDefrag) in my opinion are the most valid free solutions for defragmentation.

Months ago I read some articles that compare defrag software and report JkDefrag as one of the best solutions (also compared with shareware programs), with a minimalistic interface and a very good algorithm. Lately I started to use Defraggler, given the interface very well done and the good defrag quality, and because of the interruption in JkDefrag development. I tried also MyDefrag, that as successor of JkDefrag continues to be a good software, but unfortunately no longer portable.
Actually I use Defraggler to defrag once in a month and JkDefrag only sometimes to make also disk optimization (to do it I use this GUI I have little improved to have the best optimization configurations available in a click).

I also find Auslogics Disk Defrag quite good. There is a portable version available:

It is good and fast.. I only remember that it used Windows api to defrag and was considered less powerful than others. But could be better now, that has a longer history behind.

i like auslogic's most out of the free portable choices
mainly i like the look and ease of use

for the functionality, I havent really seen any difference between them in how they defrag, they basically all the same with maybe 1-2% difference which doesn't really mean anything
