Scroll down to the Portable version ( http://downloads.auslogics.com/en/disk-defrag/ausdiskdefragportable.exe )

It is a great work around for a defect in the NTFS file system with disk fragmentation.  The portable one has no installer and I have used it in at work to change vendor software install times from 12 minutes to 5 seconds.  And shave off 3 to 7 minutes off boot time.  For friends and family improved boot times from 8 minutes to under 2 minutes and others opening a Windows Explorer Window from 5 minutes to 3 seconds.

 

Malwarebytes is not the only one with the false positive (Trend Micro got the false positive recently too)

They never added anything to the portable version.  The portable is a different installer than the installer that installs Auslogics Disk Defrag Free onto the Windows computer.

Any way to prevent it from happening for a 4th time this year?
