I have just performed a clean install of Windows x64 with all the system drivers and windows updates. I have installed the latest CCleaner, Defraggler and Recuva.
Again with Defraggler, there seems to be a large slowdown near the end of the defragmentation process.
These are the stats of the drive containing Windows installtion after analysis:
5,358 Fragmented Files (2.7GB)
26,264 Total Fragments
Used 4.3GB (1%)
Free 461.4GB (99%)
Defraggler has had major slowdown on the last 5-10%, which as far as I can see is defragmenting smaller files from the current status view.
Currently, I have been defragmenting the following, and it is currently over 1 hour do to this:
67 Fragmented Files (97.4MB)
138 Total Fragments
The large files on the drive seemed to be defragmented really fast, however the current files being defragged such as files of the following extensions:
These files seem to take far too long considering that these files most of the time are below even 2MB in size. Also, most of these are in the Windows installation directory.
The defragmentation process is also taking up 100% of a single core on a quad core CPU. Very low disk activity and hardly any HDD light flickering.
