What Files Are Defragged at Boot Time Defrag?


Recommended Posts

On my Windows 7 x64 Home Premium machine I have set Defraggler to do a boot time defrag at every boot. What files are defragged during this process? MFT? System files? Pagefile? What about regular files that are normally defragged during the standard defrag process?

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

No hiberfil.sys ??

 

Richard S.

Where would be the benefit ?

 

I assume you might save a second or two upon using hiberfil when closing down or starting up,

but is it worth extending the start-up delay by defragging many Gbytes with a Boot Defrag ?

Is There anyway to defrag the MFT?- Even by another program... (I replaced Win defrag as default, with DF)

 

Boot Time Defrag

 

Boot-Time Defrag – defrags the system disk during the boot time, before the whole operating system is loaded. This allows Defraggler to defrag the files which are blocked after the operating system is loaded. At the moment following files are defragmented during the boot time defrag:

  • C:\pagefile.sys
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\AppEvent.Evt
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\default
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SAM
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SecEvent.Evt
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SECURITY
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\software
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\SysEvent.Evt
  • C:\WINDOWS\system32\config\system

Ultradefrag can defrag the MFT. I hope Piriform will include this sometime in a future version because Defraggler is my main defragmenter.

 

Re: Ultradefrag (Thanks!)-

I didn't like Ultradefrag as a full defrag (really slowed system), but I'll try running just the MFT part...?

 

Re: DF include MFT defrag?

DF would probably have to make MFT defrag an separate option... from Boot defrag everytime (I love this performance option!), as MFT can take awhile, whereas Boot everytime is about 1sec.

 

 

 

BTW! DF v2.10.424 is working Good (un-like v.413 for me)!

No leftovers at end of HD, that have to be manually defraged... (like .391).

No problem with 1sec fast boot defrag everytime (Love this performance setting!).

No need for more than 2 passes (best for performance!), to get 0sec completion.

HD activity Seems to settle down faster (I 10min reboot 4-times after a full defrag, to get best performance).

This didn't work out for me as I was Very Confused trying to figure out Ultradefrag's umpteen Boot Script Options (more confusing than JKdefrag...)?

 

I was trying to figure out how to defrag Just the MFT, but it appears that I'd have to boot defrag the whole drive?

 

Any help would be appreciated!? :wacko:
