    This has developed into a very nice program, my favourite of the free defrag utilities.

    How does it compare with Auslogics?

    I think both very good but UltraDefrag is for power users and Auslogics is good for average users.

    UltraDefrag has boot time capability. I'm not 100% certain, but I don't believe Auslogics can do a boot time defrag.

    UltraDefrag? I have heard of for the first time. How does it compare to the amazing Puran Defrag?

    unfortunately, the portable version doesn't do boot time defrag

    A defrag that runs at boot time on files that are typically locked by the system or applications after they load. Examples of such files would be the paging file and hibernation file.

    So every time you boot, it runs a defrag? How would that work if someone always hibernates instead?

    it only runs at boot time when you want to.

    there's no need to have it run every time you reboot.

    moontan is indeed correct. Further, it will never run if you always hibernate (which is really just a low power state; bringing your computer out of that state is not the equivalent of a reboot).

    You are talking about sleep. Hibernate does power off the computer. :D.

    Although I suppose that is technically correct, the point is bringing the computer out of hibernation is not the same as a complete reboot. Thus, boot time defrag will only run after a restart; bringing the computer out of hibernation won't do it.
