Does it optimize as well?

Recommended Posts

Does this defragger optimize (compact) as well -- or is this just for defragging?

 

I used to think that one side effect of defraggin' was to optimize the performance of the hard disk, but as you ask this... I suspect that are they not the same anymore?... any light in this topic would be appreciated...

 

Greetings!!

Heres how I see it:

 

Defragging - grouping all of a files segments together so its no longer fragmented

 

Compacting (aka consolidating) - groups free space into one large chunk so newly created files arent fragmented

 

Optimizing - organizing the files based on access or modification date, or by file name.

Hi all,

 

i'm just taking a look on this soft.

 

Seemingly, when you select "Defrag Drive", first Defraggler defrags files then it performs a (very long time) compact, "consolidation" of empty spaces.

 

I think it's the first freeware defragmenter to do this. But i'm not sure.

Well, is this "consolidation" very important, interesting, i don't know ???

 

Nice day.

 

======================================

 

After all, it seams that Defraggler don't finish its job.

 

First time (all files defragmented, option Defrag Disk) :

Second :

Due to beta version ?

Even the Windows defragger does that.

Sorry, but i'm sure that is no. Windows defragger doesn't "consolidate" empty spaces.

Perhaps with Vista ? I don't know.

Actually, the Windows defrag utility compacts your hard-drive after defragmentation, which is essentially the same as free space consolidation.
