Yep the worst thing was I was onsite for 45 minutes but after 45 minutes of mostly waiting around I decided it had to be a workshop job which I am more reluctant to do with new customers as they may think I am scamming them.

It actually looks very smart and modern, so I was a bit surprised when I found out it had the 450 chip. I I may offer to stick an extra 1GB of RAM in, less swapping etc will free the processor up to do other things.

I use Glarys disk speed up(nice and quick) for defragging, and for tune ups I use Glarys utilities. personally I really like them and they have some great tools included.

I checked with glarys first to see if I could use the products for free on my customers computers and charge them and the answer was yes so that's good peace of mind. ccleaner and defraggler are no longer available for technician use.

I also use Auslogics.

This is probably obvious but never defrag an SSD or you'll shorten its lifespan and it's a waste of time since there is no such animal as disk latency.

Default Smart Defrag

My top fav is Smart Defrag not only there is a portable version but the it deep optimizes and defrags your hard drives. The interface is easy to understand.
