  1. - Tweaking's Windows Repair has advanced to a new version (Version 4). The latest build is version v4.0.1.

    - The basic features are still available for free.

    - Those who have bought the version 3 PRO program can still access those PRO 3 features in version 4. For the extra PRO features in version 4 one needs to buy a new license key.

  2. - Another thing that needs to be improved in the next version of DF: DF doesn't Always take into account that I have the Taskbar on the left hand side of the screen. This odd behaviour occurs when I want to shrink DF to its previous (non maximized) size. Then the left hand part of the GUI is "hiding" under the Task Bar.


  3. - Agree. The smartphone platform targeted is indeed missing.

    - The worrysome thing is that this exploit has been used for a "nefarious" purpose.

    - The entire story (keyword: exploit) makes it clear that one SHOULD regularly patch up one's smartphone/computer(-system).


  4. - The sub-routines used for displaying the filemap also need to be improved. I know that on some places on my HD file(s) is/are located/placed. But in spite of hitting "Analyze" multiple times DF simply fails to let those files show up in the filemap. Even restarting the program won't fix this problem.

     

    - DF also still thinks that in some places/locations files are located but when I move the (mouse-) to such a place then DF reports "No files found" (or something similar). And even restarting the program won't fix this problem either.

     

    - Seems that filemap info is located somewhere in memory on on the HD and DF fails to erase that info. Perhaps DF has an "internal" variable that tells DF what the current state is of the filemap. Or perhaps DF overlooks certain categories of files.

    - Perhaps DF needs an extra option/switch that will tell DF whether or not to (fully) re-examine/analyze the drive, with a new fresh re-building up of the filemap.


  5. - Use Defraggler to move A LOT OF (non system) files you don't regularly use/open towards the end of the drive. That way you'll make room at the beginning of the drive for systemfiles (e.g. the pagefile) to be defragmented.


  6. - The main problem here is that Piriform hasn't released a new and improved version of Defraggler for a while. I use the word "improved" because there still a number of bugs in the program code that need to be fixed.

     

    (Perhaps this post is able to persuade the developers to improve the program code in the near future ??)


  7. - Didn't install it yet. Although I have downloaded the Stand-Alone version for Windows 7 and the appropriate language package.

    - Whenever possible I always download the individual update installation files. It allows me to install Win 7 without going out on the internet (think: viruses and other malware).


  8. - To be frank I rarely do a full defrag of my HD. I only defragment the fragmented files.

    - Sometimes a drive starts to fail after only a few months. A number of SMART values are at worrying highs.

    - A more convenient way to show the SMART info is the following: Run Piriform's SPECCY. Then select (File >> Publish Snapshot) and post the link that pops up in your next reply. That snapshot also will show the SMART values of your HD.


  9. - It means that the HD could be in the 1st stages of failing. Run the progrma again, open the "Health" tab. Does any of the lines show up in a pink or red color ? Post a screenshot then we can see what's wrong with the "health" of the HD.
