Auslogics Disk Defrag Free portable is a false positive

Recommended Posts


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)

This is detected correctly as PUP.Optional. You are welcome to add it to your ignore list but we have seen them bundle adware in the past.

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.

I have added this particular file to our F/p prevention server however any new versions may trigger a detection at such time.


Thanks again for reporting this.
