Defraggler 2.14.705

Most defrag tools only allow you to defrag an entire drive. Defraggler lets you specify one or more files, folders, or the whole drive to defragment.

When Defraggler reads or writes a file, it uses the exact same techniques that Windows uses. Using Defraggler is just as safe for your files as using Windows.

At a glance, you can see how fragmented your hard drive is. Defraggler's drive map shows you blocks that are empty, not fragmented, or needing defragmentation.

  • Give your hard drive a quick touch-up with Quick Defrag
  • Organizes empty disk space to further prevent fragmentation
  • Defragment while you sleep - and wake up with a faster PC. Set Defraggler to run daily, weekly or monthly
  • Full Windows OS and Multi-lingual support
  • Boot time defrag of system files
  • Supports 37 major languages

Defraggler is made by Piriform, the company that also brought you CCleaner and Recuva, so is completely free!

Did I read the website wrong or does only the professional version allow sorting the files according to the prefetcher layout? Cramming all files together without a proper order doesn't sound like a smart idea.

Windows 7 & 8 have very good internal defrag engines. Use it in combination with task scheduler and u have something which is 100% safe & far Superior to such apps. Try for instance:
defrag c: -f -v -u -h -w [ Would defrag files of ALL sizes and would print the defrag progress in the console]
defrag c: -f -v -u -h -b [For boot files optimization]
or something more generic "defrag -c -f -v -u -h"
Using Windows 8 you can also utilize the "-o" switch to further optimize file locations.

Defraggler's boot time optimization contains a half backed registry defrag.
Pagefile defrag can be manually done by consolidating files on the drive .... Fix it's size & recreate one on system boot. THIS NEEDS TO BE DONE JUST ONCE. Disable "Clear virtual memory pagefile when system shuts down" at the subsequent boot & u'll have a non fragmented page file

I wanted to use defraggler only on XP machines as in newer versions of Windows there hardly is any decent free alternative due to system restore/shadow copies handling but if Defraggler crams all the file together without respecting the XP layout.ini file then it could slow windows boot and application startup times even compared to the standard XP defrag thus becoming worse than useless.
