Power Defragmenter is a very advanced GUI for the
Sysinternals core application which takes defragmentation process to a
whole new level.
Power Defragmenter is a GUI (Graphic User Interface) application for program Contig by Sysinternals.
Contig is a very powerful defragmentation application designed for Windows NT/2000/XP operating systems. Contig created by Mark Russinovich and Bryce Cogswell.
Whats new in version 3.0?
- Simplified Contig download and setup (now almost fully automatic)
- Removed PowerMode because of compatibility problems with Windows Vista
- Introduced TriplePass mode replacing obsolete PowerMode
- Added ability to defragment removable drives (mostly floppy and USB hard drives**)
- Fixed few glitches
- New Vista style graphics
TripleMode runs Contig in 3 passes defragmenting any remaining fragmented files.
Note: Don’t use on USB flash and SSD drives as they are basically immune to
the file fragmentation due to almost non existent access latency.
Defragmenting flash devices also decreases their lifetime.
