MyDefrag v4.1

MyDefrag (formerly JkDefrag) is a disk defragmenter and optimizer (a maintenance utility to make your harddisk faster) for Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 2008, and for X64. It is freeware, no time limit, fully functional, no advertisements. Fast, low overhead, with many optimization strategies, can handle floppies, USB disks, memory sticks, and anything else that looks like a disk to Windows. Included are a set of easy to use scripts for endusers, a scripting engine for demanding users, a screensaver, and a combined Windows plus commandline version that can be scheduled by the Windows task scheduler or for use from administrator scripts.

Who needs this nowadays honestly? What does it have which Windows' built-in utility doesn't? On top of that for people running their PC 24/7 - you just schedule a 3 am defrag job daily or weekly and forget about it.

What this has is file placement which is placing the most used files at the outer most part of the disk for increased performance, it also leaves less files fragmented after it is run.

It is pretty well agreed upon that the Windows Defragmentation Utility leaves a lot to be desired. I have tried a few stand alone defraggers and they all seem to perform better and have better results than the built-in one. Also, the built in one requires something like 15% free space which can be an issue sometimes.

Yes, anything other than Windows defrag is excellent, MyDefrag for example puts _all_ directories to the front of the disk, this makes for extremely fast windows explorer browsing.

Great app, I use it all the time for full defrags. (I let the Windows one work on a daily basis...)

you do realize defragmentation programs all work differently, right? It's defeating the whole purpose if you run 2 different ones.

this is formerly known as JkDefrag for those who don't know.

seems good, but what i don't like is i don't think you can use the switches like you used to like... 'jkdefrag.exe -l "" C:' etc etc
