The Great Defrag Shootout XXVII: Windows PowerTools 1.3

This is the worst waste of time I have ever had the misfortune of reviewing: "Windows PowerTools 1.3" is a batch file 3kb long, packaged in a 100kb self-extracting EXE. There is no uninstall: you just delete the folder containing the batch file and the desktop shortcut.
The batch file is reasonably easy to read, as batch files go, and some of the options are too buggy to work. There is NO documentation, other than the one-line explanations shown in the graphic above. When you select option 6 above the batch file calls the built-in Windows Disk Defrag utility. This "utility" gets a big thumbs down for sheer waste of time. Thanks for nothing.
