Disk Defrag Section:
This is the most important section of this tool. Here you can select hard drives that you want to analyze to know the fragmentation percentage. Apart from this, you will find a button to add a specific folder for defragmentation. At the bottom left side, three different buttons will be available to use: Analyze, Quick Defrag, Full Defrag. Once you have selected drives or folders, tap on Analyze button. It will start analysing those drives and will show you drive space in graphical view. Drive sectors are represented in the form of blocks.
Once the analysis is completed, it will show you a progress map to find out fragmentation percentage, analyzed files, and the total number of fragmented files. Apart from this, you can also view blocks that contains Master File Table files, fragmented files, locked files, free space blocks, etc. If fragmentation percentage is higher, then you can go for Full Defrag mode. Otherwise, use Quick Defrag mode. As soon as the defragmentation process is finished, you will find results. Results will show you how many files were processed, and fragmentation percentage (before and after).
It is also a handy section which is used to boost the speed of your PC games. You can even use this section to defrag executable applications (*.exe). Just add an executable application/game and then it will analyze all files/folders of that application for fragmentation percentage. If fragmentation is found, it will auto defragment it. This will help to speed up game running speed.
In this section, you will the find list of those programs that you use frequently, such as: Microsoft OneNote, Outlook, your web browser, or any other program. From that list, you can select programs for defragmentation. If might help to improve performance of these programs.
This section is important to find out junk files, registry errors, and privacy related issues on your PC. However, it can only show problems, and does not fix issues.
