My Experience with O&O Defrag Server

I’m a computer consultant and when I went to visit a company running two Hyper-V servers with 4 virtual machines the performance was sluggish and poor, constant crashing, blue screens, 10-25minute reboots on the host machines – after downloading and installing O&O Defrag Server the headache was gone in over a day the machines were fast and responsive, no more crashes, no more program hangs… and ever since it runs in the background protecting and ensuring the servers don’t get clogged up again. I highly recommend this to any serious server administrator worth his weight in gold.
