  1. Let me explain my setup: I have three HDDs but only the first one is really relevant. I partitioned the first HDD into three partitions, two large partitions with a small partition in between (all primary partitions). The first partition is mounted at C: and has the OS installed. (Windows XP) The second partition is 2x the amount of RAM I have and all (except 5MB) is a designated pagefile. (This guarantees a contiguous swapspace. Normally I would put it at the front of the drive but that can somehow cause boot problems with some versions of windows.) The third partition is mounted at C:\Programs\ When I install Programs I change the default install path from C:\Program Files\XXXX\ to C:\Programs\XXXX\ This ensures that: 1. my program files do not get intermingled on disk with my system files, 2. most anything installed without my consent (goes into C:\Program Files\ by default) is readily browse-able. 3. my program files are contiguous and programs installed by me are easily identifiable Anyway I like how it keeps things neat. However, when I run defraggler the 'Programs' mount does not appear as an option. If I defrag C:\ and then try to defrag C:\Programs using the Defrag Folder option, it appears to already be defragged. My question is, how does defraggler currently handle this and can I force a defrag on only one area at a time? (or would you implement a by-partition defrag) since defragging both areas at the same time slows down the drive. (Also I wouldn't want files moved from one partition to the other...) On a GUI note, more detail is shown when the viewing pane is expanded by dragging it down. How about adding a checkbox "Drive View in Maximum Resolution" where a scrollbar is added and the viewing pane is made tall enough to display the drive in full detail?
