Despite its poor interface, MyDefrag is a faster and lighter solution for Windows defragmenter.
MyDefrag is a small utility for defragmenting and optimizing the hard drives, memory cards or USB keys. Simple and convenient, simply select the item you want to enable: analysis, defragmentation, optimization, defragmentation or a memory card.
Compared to the Windows defragmenter, it has various advantages. Not only is it faster than Windows and consumes fewer resources, but as a bonus it has two different defragmentation strategies more effective than Windows: the "fast" method is well suited for everyday use and the "full" method to defragment background.
It can work as a simple command line program, as a graphical application, and even as a screen saver! With the saving , the drive will always be in its optimal form .
The software is fully automated, making it easy to use.
* Added the Windows "bootstat.dat" file to the build-in list of special exceptions.
* To my great chagrin I have found that some programs can crash (most notably MySQL and uTorrent) if the disk on which they have open files is dismounted with the MyDefrag DismountVolume command. The command was used in the DataDisk scripts that were introduced in the previous version. I have now removed it.
