Defraggler 1.01.050 Beta

Defraggler differs from other defrag tools on the market, by enabling you to quickly and simply defrag the files you want to, without having to process the whole drive. Simply run it, select the file and defragment in seconds. No more struggling with the Windows defragmentation tool! And remember like all Piriform products, Defraggler is completely free for both corporate and individual use.

Features:

  • Defrag Individual Files: Most defragmentation tools only let you defrag the whole drive. Defraggler gives you the power to select individual files and folders to defrag. So you can get the job done in seconds, rather than waiting for the whole drive to complete. Of course if you want to defrag the whole drive Defraggler will let you do that too.
  • Compact and Portable: Defraggler was written in the same compact architecture as other Piriform products (CCleaner and Recuva). This results in a compact single EXE application, which can be copied to a thumbdrive and then used whenever you need it, without a complex installation process. The EXE itself is less than 1MB!
  • Vista Support: Defraggler supports all OSs released since Windows 2000, this includes Windows 2000, 2003, XP and Vista. Although 64-bit support is not included in this version, we are working on compatibility, so it will be available soon! Additionally Defraggler supports both NTFS and FAT32 file systems.
  • Locate Files on the Drive: After analysis Defraggler lists all the fragmented files on the drive. Selecting one or many will highlight their location on the disk. Allowing you to visually see the location of files on the disk.
What's New:
  • Added faster stopping for large file defragmentation
  • Added support for pausing and resuming
  • Fixed bug that caused $MFT to be displayed in list view
  • System drive is selected by default
  • Various UI tweaks
  • Minor bug fixes
This is BETA software!, please use caution when installing it on your system

Yup, my favorite is AusLogic's Disk Defrag. I love the interface, the speed and the comprehensive percentage improvement report at the end.

Mmm.

This is actually a really nice defragger. 64 bit support was just added, too.

It's nice to use along side JkDefrag.

JkDefrag is better than Defraggler.
It is both pointless and useless to use two defragmenters back-to-back.
They all use the original defrag API function (which was originally designed by the same people who make Diskeeper) however the applications use different criteria for determining what is commonly and least commonly used and where to put what.
JkDefrag has a wonderful engine which defragmenters all files successfully and places the files sequentially and even consolidates all directories.
Defraggler does not defrag all files and does not perform file placement.

If you're going to use one or the other, the obvious choice is JkDefrag.

I agree, JkDefrag is probably the best tool for defragging in general... but for for individual files - Defraggler is probably the best just because the GUI is so simple.

You actually don't have to install either defrag tool, you can just put both executables in the same folder... that's what I meant by using them side by side.

ill second that ... i been using JKDefrag a while now to and i think it's great overall. as it's FREE and defrags pretty quick in general.

main reason i have Defraggler installed is for 'analyzing' (not for defraging) files and seeing which ones are most fragmented.

The ability to defrag a single file is meant to seem convenient but that's it. Whether a DVD or ISO is in 1 single contiguous chunk or in 5000 fragments, you won't notice the difference in the time it takes it to be loaded in your preferred application. I used to defragment all files before burning them but soon discovered that was unnecessary.

Portable or not, for the reasons I stated above render using two defragmenters both useless and pointless. If anything it is causing more stress on your HDD than is necessary. I have done thorough testing and most defragmenters basically play tug-of-war with the filesystem. Take Diskeeper and PerfectDisk for example. One defragments using Last Accessed Date and the other by Last Modified Date. You would spend an eternity defragmenting a HDD because they are both pulling in opposite directions.

It's like using a hacksaw on an uncuttable tree trunk.
