  • What is MFT?

    Hi All,
    When I run Smart Defrag I see a lot of orange boxes which are defined as MFT. What the blank are they?
    Thanks

      Hi dcroose
      MFT → Master File Table
      Several acronyms/abbreviations used here in the forum can be found in the appropriate post in this thread

            Hi butch
            Master File Table keeps track of your important directories and files.

            If it is growing out of all proportion then please check if you have enabled shadow copying in your services (services.msc in Run)
            How many blocks are shown by you as being MFT ?
            Perhaps a screenshot would be good
            Cheers

              smart defrag does not defrag the MFT perhaps next version will.

              to defrag these files use the free puran defrag

              http://forums.iobit.com/showthread.php?t=5834

              you only defrag the MFT every few months does not need regular defrag.

                Hi all .. New Guy ..

                Just wondering if it was a good idea to have 2 defragmenters downloaded at the same time .. I seen the post on the Puran Defrag with the MFT organizer .. I use smart Defrag often and thought there mite be a conflict with both programs .. Think its ok to use both .. ??? .. Thank's for you're time on this ..

                  Hi Jamie67,

                  It is not a bad idea to have more than 1 defragmenter, unless you use more than 1 at the same time. ie. Do not run 2 defragmenters at the same moment.

                  Please note that, all defragmenters have different algorithims, and logics, so one defragmenter can change what the other one does.

                  Summary:
                  You can use both of them, there are no conflicts.

                  Suggestion:
                  Use Puran Defrag for defrag of system files and use Smart Defrag for optimized defrag of the disk.

                  Cheers.

                    I use puran to defrag MFT and another defrag to defrag the files [jk mydefrag http://www.filehippo.com/download_mydefrag/ ]

                    as mentioned never run two at the same time.

                    to defrag the pagefile I use

                        Hi Jamie67!

                        Welcome to Iobit forum!

                        No need to get preoccupied with defagmentation, unless your HD is maxed out. Is that the case???

                          Edit: You should read the thread instead of placing links in it
                          In your case I would opt for the meaning MisFit Toys

I did some looking around and found a site at http://download.cnet.com .. Theirs a lot of free spy-ware and other programs on their that I have never even heard of before .. This seems to be a good Download site to go to for what ever a person feels like they need .. and free to .. Thank you all for you're Help .. (to the post above me) .. go to Google and research MFT .. you will find what you're looking for there .. Every one take care and thanks again ..

                              only download recommended software by trusted people on the forum, these download sites provide good free software but also a load of trash which could mess your pc.
