Registry Defrag


Mike P.

Recommended Posts

I remember reading somewhere that HD-defrag programs do Not defrag System-Hidden files or the Master-file-table.

(Which would include the Registry)

So, I assume Smart-defrag would be the Same?

 

There is a Registry-defrag utility in IObit's ASC,

but I think it's more of a Junk-remover than it is a defragger.

I don't think the registry does get badly, even if it did I would think the files on your hard disk are more important to degrag anyway.

Hi Toppack

I ran a boot time defrag with all options ticked in C:\

Settings:

Defragment Page file, hibernation file

Defragment MFT

Defragment system files

It only found 5 fragments in those settings, - some 800 in the rest of the C:\ drive - most of them in Windows temporary or temporary Internet files.

I had just prior to this run an optimizing defrag!

I have the report saved if anyone should be interested.

There you go again, Finding Settings 'That I Don't Have' ??? :shock:

(True, I'm using a old beta version of Smart-defrag on this computer,

since I didn't like some of the changes)

Were those added to new version?

 

This is all I see in Boot-time settings:

Registry Defrag

 

I've had an email response from the Iobit Support team which states:

 

"For your concern, our Smart Defrag just defrags fragmented files, including the fragmented files in registry. It will not cause trouble".

 

Trust this addresses everybody's uncertainties.

Hi Toppack,

 

They are on the main GUI when you open Boot Time Defrag tab.

 

Cheers.

 

Wow, that's a STRANGE place to HIDE them! :shock::lol:

What's wrong with putting 'Settings' on the 'Settings' page ???

 

Thanks for the Info, but I've never needed to run a Boot-time-defrag yet. ;-)

:-) Toppack :-)

I see the location as rather logical! :-)

You can't miss them if you want to try the Boot Time defrag!

If you don't it doesn't matter where they are! :-)

I would Agree, If they could put All the settings at the Tabs,

even though they are a little more hidden there.

But I don't think having settings in two locations is a good idea, :-?

unless All the settings are at Both locations, which would be Great! :idea:

still get caught out from time to time not seeg the obvious.

 

Yes, I had Never used the Boot-time option,

so had No idea those settings were hidden there. :-?

I wonder if there was a reason IObit did Not put those on the Settings page or did they just get Lazy? :lol:

Hi Toppack and sunny

Like in all other IObit products there are some things that are chosen in the window fx. which drive to defrag/clean/ or whatever - or what type of cleaning or defragmentation you want to perform - do you want these settings in the same place as the general settings, or is it alright to have them where they are needed.

In some of the applications you can click "Settings" before you run the program, this will send you to the primary settings, - it is like that in SD too.

I find that rather natural.

But perhaps some would feel more comfortable having all settings in one place? The problem then is will they remember which settings they have chosen? Perhaps then settings should be everywhere, preferably with a very thorough explanation on how it works, which one had to read and understand to activate the use of the program!! :-) :-) :-)
