Compared to Windows 7 Defragmenter


Douglas Windows 7 Home

Recommended Posts

Hi, I should start by saying I enjoy the CCleaner very much. Based on that I have installed Defraggler.

The first time I analyzed the C: drive with Defraggler, it said 6% fragmented (having already been defragemented by Windows 7 defragmenter). After running your program, the result was 17% fragemented. Subsequent defragment sessions including a boot time defragment ranged from 14% - 11%. However, when I ran the Windows 7 defragmenter my results afterward were 2% based on using your program again to analyze the drive. Any ideas what I might be doing wrong with your program?

The drive is a WD Caviar Green SATA (NTFS) 1.8TB with 400.2GB used running on Windows 7 Home Premium

Analysis reveals HD health is Good

102 Fragemented Files (10.4 GB)

269 Total Fragements

2% Fragmentation

 

Thanks in advance for any positive input.

 

Cordially, Douglas

You probably need to stop VSS prior to defragmenting. There is an option to do that inside defraggler settings. Also, keep in mind that Windows Defragmenter doesn't take into account all files and that it even just ignore files/fragments bigger than a fixed size. The bottom line is that its defragmentation report could be some sort of a white lie.
