My main machine was getting pretty fragmented, so I ran graphical disk defrag program provided with XP. After it ran, my disk still had 27% file fragmentation and it was recommending that I needed to defrag again. In my online search for a better defrag utility, I discovered that there’s command line defrag utility. I tried it out, and now I’m at 0% fragmentation. I’m not sure why the command-line utility did so much better than the GUI version, but safe to say I’ll be using the command line version from now on.
I was going to try out the SysInternals PageDefrag utility to defrag my system files, but they’re already contiguous. Not sure if they were that way before or if the windows defrag tool took care of them too.
