CheckDrive Editor's Review

There comes a time when computers are running slow. This happens to everyone, and you need to find out what is wrong with the system. A piece of software like Check Drive is then used to speed up your computer.

Upon install, you will notice that you need to register the software in order to use it. You have to provide the company with your fist and second name, and email address. They say that they provide you with the link within 3 minutes, or to check your spam mail. Once you have the email, then you click the link it contains to activate the software. Once the link has been accessed, then it automatically registers, and you are presented with the main screen.

My first viewing of the software was a good one. It didn't look complicated, but the program has a large area of the screen that is taken up with an image that reminded me of windows defragmenter, or an excel spreadsheet that was turned shades of orange.

It displayed an error message, that I felt was misleading to the system because it seemed to be a pop-up. The reason I thought this, is because I was then presented with another pop-up asking if I would offer a donation.  I did however carry on with my test of the software and chose to ignore the error that I was presented with.

The program allows you to start a scan, check your drive, change the settings or find out more info. It is a shame in the settings that there was no ability to alter the screen size, because it didn't fit the screen properly on my machine.

Once I started a scan, it does show a percentage of what has been completed, but unfortunately I couldn't see this properly. After a scan, the screen changes from orange to green in the areas that are currently fragmented. Once I had done the scan, it assessed what was wrong with my system. It then gave me the option to fix the problems once a restart had been carried out. Once my system restarted, it fixed the issues that it had found wrong.

I would recommend this piece of software for someone looking to fix any problems they may have with their computer, its also useful to find out the health of your drives too. Overall I rate this 3 out of 5 and that is purely because of the bloat ware and long approach installing.

CheckDrive detects the current fragmentation status of the hard drives and shows the amount of garbage on the disks.

It can even create lists of the top-100 space using files as well as statistics and charts about different file types on your drive. The FolderVisualizer can be launched directly when already installed on the PC.
From version 2013 on more detailed information about the drive including the manufacturer logo will be displayed.
