Defrag

Recommended Posts

Hi kestrel

Yes - and even ASC will find additional fragments if you close the program - open it again - and run yet another check/"repair"

Please read Usage of IObit Products (link available in my signature) and enoskype's exellent thread "Thinking about Defragmentation":

ACS seems to find additional file fragments that Diskkeeper misses. Is that really possible?

Welcome

 

Welcome to the forum kestrel :smile:

(By the way, I fixed the thread title)

every defrag program that has optimisition does it slightly different as different methods are used by each company undoing the previous opimisition by the other defrag.

 

some defrag programes do not have any optimisition, so thay can say their defrag is the fastest at defragging a false economy, but i prefer one with good optimisation so that the hard drive works slightly faster afterwards.

 

ones that constantly defrag and optimise can actually cause more wear and tear than it prevents.

 

thats why it is worth testing a few defrag programs.

defrag tips

 

I noted these tips from the Jeroen Kessels web site

 

Cleanup old junk from your harddisk before running Defrag, for example with "Start -> Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup", or with something like the freeware CCleaner program.

 

Reboot before running Defrag. This will release files that are in use, so they can be defragmented. You can also run Defrag in Windows safe mode (press F8 while booting) to defrag even more files.

 

Stop your real time virus scanner before running Defrag. Virus scanners check all disk activity, making defragmentation and optimization very slow.

 

Move the swap file to another volume, reboot, defragment, and move the swap file back. If you don't have a second volume then temporarily make the swap file small, for example 100Mb.

 

If an application (for example a database) prevents certain files from being defragmented then stop the application, run Defrag for the particular data directory only, and restart the application.

 

Buy the biggest harddisk you can afford. Investing in a bigger harddisk gives more speed-per-dollar than investing in a faster CPU or more memory.

 

The first partition on a harddisk is significantly faster than other partitions.

 

If you have 2 physical harddisks (of the same speed), then place the pagefile on the first partition of the second harddisk.
