Defrag freespace

Recommended Posts

Hello. Using v.1.20 under WinXP.


I used the defrag freespace on an already defragmented partition and, after finishing, Defraggler fragmented four files which were not fragmented before. Then I notice no difference for using the Defrag Freespace allowing fragmentation. Both free space options create further fragmentation. I think the Free Space defrag should leave gaps opened but it shouldn't create new fragments.

Yes. I have experienced the same thing in DF v1.20. When I choose ""Defragment free space"" it acts like ""Defragment free space (allowing fragments)"". But it also acts the other way around. When I select ""Defragment free space (allowing fragments)"" DF acts like I have chosen ""Defragment free space"" (without ""allowing fragmentation"").


I like the GUI of v1.20 more than that of v1.18 and v1.19. It certainly has improved.
