  1. ok ok .. I understand .. no one cares ... nice job anyway.
  2. If the defragmentation lasts tooooooooo much and if I would advise you what to do .. I would say to move the whole folder manually to another drive, defrag the source and then move them back. Do a test an tell us what is the result.
  3. Today I used the same method on a computer with a lot of very fragmented movies in the same folder. For testing purpose I let defraggler to do its job. At a moment I thought it stucked but the hdd led was red all the time so I stopped the process. I MANUALLY MOVED the folder on another drive and it took me 4 minutes (SATA2 HDD!!). Then I let defraggler to work on a much lighter D: drive and it did it very fast (about 2-3 minutes). It took me 4 minutes to put back the movies manually (very unpleasant - the computer should do that for me) - and the total time for the entire job was 4+3+4 = 11 minutes. I could not obtain this time on a normal defrag not even in my happiest dreams. So Piriform Team .. I love your product and I congratulate you for your work .. but please take in consideration some good ideas... Thank you.
  4. ok .. no admins, no dev team ... I will do the nice job manually
  5. It is much faster indeed but the computer should do this, not us! Any admin, any oppinion? Thank you for trying my tip.
  6. Hello. I use Defraggler on many computers (hundreds!) that comes to me for service. I allways used the latest version and it NEVER failed (never tryed on VISTA). But I usualy do not use defraggler the way it wants. IT IS MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH MUCH FASTER the way I do it: I use "analyse" and then I take a look at the list of files. I re-order them using number-of-fragments and then -size-. I manually move the most defragmented files on another drive (takes me 1 minute) getting rid this way of some hundreds of fragments. Then I move a couple of extra large files to another drive, too (another minute) . Now I let Defraggler to do its job. At the end I manually put back at their places the previously moved files (1-2 minutes). The important thing is that when I put the files back the copy operation will put them in a contiguos free zone (the drive is allready defragnented, right?) so all the files are still defragmented!!!! This way I managed to shorten the defragmentation time A LOT. Now, What I suggest sounds like this AND IT IS VERY EASY FOR THE TEAM TO DO IT: Every fragmented file in the list of fragmented files should have a check box in front of it and by checking it we can build a list of files that we want to move TEMPORARY to another drive where we have enough free space. Then we should choose the drive and folder to move the files to and then the dragmentation should begin. At the end of defragmentation Defraggler should put the previously moved files back. Improvement: the program could -auto-mark some files accordingly to some criterions -how many fragments or how big the files are- -suggest a drive with enough free space to move the selected files to. I wait for your answers, moderators especialy. Thank you for your time. You may comment my suggestion and maybe vote for its implementation
