In the context of administering computer systems,
defragmentation is a process that reduces the amount of fragmentation
in file systems. It does this by physically organizing the contents of
the disk to store the pieces of each file close together and
contiguously. It also attempts to create larger regions of free space
using compaction to impede the return of fragmentation. Some
defragmenters also try to keep smaller files within a single directory
together, as they are often accessed in sequence.
Disk Defrag will speed up your computer by
optimizing file system. It can defragment files, consolidate free space
and move system files to the faster part of the disk.
With AML Free Disk Defrag you'll get the maximum
out of your hard drive performance. It is supplied with a powerful
engine and smart algorithms which allow Disk Defrag to run much faster
than similar tools
Disk fragmentation leads to system slowdowns,
crashes, slow startup and shutdown, and sometimes to system failures.

Click Analyse button or type
F1 to start the volume analysis. Click Defragment button or type F2 to
start the volume defragmentation. Click Optimize button or type F3 to
start the volume optimization. Use Stop button or F4 hotkeys to stop
the currently running disk defragmentation/analysis job.

are some of the files skipped by the program?
Sometimes Disk Defrag skips
certain files because they are locked by another running program.
Common solution would be to exit all running applications when you
defragment your disk. Some files (MFT, etc.) are skipped because they
are system files and cannot be defragmented by this program.
Disk Defrag also needs a contiguous disk space for each file to be
defragmented. If your disk has a lot of free space, but it is broken
into small free space intervals, Disk Defrag is unable to defragment
some of the large files (such as movies, etc.). To tackle this problem,
you can first run 'Optimize' and then 'Defragment'. It will consolidate free
space into a contiguous block and defragment even the largest files on
Probably the most important
of the key system (metadata) files that define an NTFS volume, the
Master File Table or MFT is the place where information about every
file and directory on an NTFS volume is stored. The MFT is in essence a
relational database table, containing various attributes about
different files. It acts as the 'starting point' and central management
feature of an NTFS volume--sort of a 'table of contents' for the
volume, if you will. It is somewhat analog to the file allocation table
in a FAT partition, but is much more than just a list of used and
