How is fragmentation calculated?


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just downloaded Defraggler and analyzed a (non ssd) hard drive. According to defraggler there is 31% fragmentation.

 

The Windows 10 build-in defragmentation tool states the same drive with 0% fragmentation.

 

Why is there such a gap between those two tools?

 

Thank you for clarification.

Defraggler sees locked microsoft files which windows ignores their effect on the fragmentation. At least that's how I understand it

 

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.
