Defraggler Progress Bar Uninformative

Recommended Posts

When using the Defraggler to defrag a single large file of 100 Megabytes or more, the Defraggler progress bar quickly counts up to some seemingly random number between 0% and 99% and then both the progress bar and the disk contents graphic do not change for many minutes while the defragging takes place. Nothing changes until the very end when the disk contents sudden flashes yellow and the the Defraggler sudden goes from nothing to the "Defrag complete" state. :o


It doesn't make much sense to display the Defragmentation status bar if it doesn't really show the progress of the Defragging progress. It is a pretty worthless display. The disk contents graphic is not much use either during this long wait. :unsure:


It would be much better if the progress display actually showed the progress of the defragmentation of these large files. :rolleyes: The progress display could be actually useful to estimate how long it might take to complete the file defragmentation so that I could know if I could go out and get a cup of coffee or something during the wait.


It would even be more entertaining if the disk contents graphic also showed the movement of the file contents as the defragmentation was taking palce. :lol:
