The JINX of 5% Fragmentation!


Recommended Posts

Hello Members!

 

Have run the Latest version of Defraggler an umpteen times within Win 10, but the JINX of 5% Fragmentation continues to sustain.

 

Similar meticulous attempts have also been made within SAFE-Mode of Win 10, but 5% of Fragmentation continues to linger on..& on!

 

Can someone please help guide on the Holy-sermon to dispel the JINX of 5% forever Fragmentation?

 

Help will be sincerely appreciated.

 

PS::: Defragmentation is able to complete 100% at 100% of times, but Re-analysis of the C: drive have always-always indicated--- "5% Fragmentation"!

Why are you worried about an insignificant amount of fragmentation, and drive with 23 or less fragmentation is within operating norms. There's no such creature as "100% defragmentation" in the real world

 

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.

even if you were to achieve the Holy Grail of getting your drive 100% defrag'd, it would get re-fragmented at the next reboot.

Backup now & backup often.
It's your digital life - protect it with a backup.

If not before

Hello Nergal & mta!

 

I would also like to apprise that running Defragmentation under SAFE-Mode of Windows also tinkers with 'Recovery Drive' as well!

Though the % continues to depict as 0% fragmented, yet the respective Defragmentation continue to proceed ahead with a Real-time Updates over amount of time left!

 

Is 0% fragmentation a False positive? OR Defragmentation of Recovery-drive is the greater of the two Lies? :-)

 

Please suggest?

I should elaborate on my previous state.

I should have said "trying to achieve 100% defragmentation on your system drive is nigh on impossible."

 

defragging any other drive/partition down to 0% is actually pretty easy.

that's due to every other drive, apart from the system one, not being 'live':- there is no pagefile, updates, background tasks, AV software, restore points etc etc always active.

Backup now & backup often.

The way Win10 adds files back in immediately after running CCleaner it's of no surprise that there's always a level of unavoidable fragmentation and I'm not referring to locked in-use files, just the rubbish that Win10 relentlessly creates.
