Moving all the index or directory information to one spot.
Is there an documentation for this statement? (1) Doesn't happen on NTFS does it? -- Aren't all the directories in the system area anyway? (2) Didn't happen on Windows 95/98 did it? - Had to run Norton Speed Disk to do that? Note that MS disk caching did not cache folders/directories until the 32 bit disk access stuff appeared (although there was a seperate directory caching utility, it was not normally run under Windows 3.1). Unless you optimised the directory locations, this made path searches very slow, which made starting executables slow on 'large' hard disks. Unoptimised directory location became less of an issue because of GUI file start instead of path search, but also addressed by NTFS, which puts directories into a seperate area?220.127.116.11 21:54, 11 December 2006 (UTC)
Windows defragger basically the same as Diskeeper?
I understand that in the past Windows Dosk Defragmenter was licensed from Diskeeper and was essentially the same product. Is that true in the Vista version?
I absolutely hate the new Vista defragger. There is no longer any graphics to suggest how the process is going. It takes forever to run because apparently it was designed that way, with no provisions for the user to speed things up. Very disappointing. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk • contribs) 12:38, 9 August 2007
Although you are entitled to an opinion this is not really the place to discuss it. I would recommend to search the Microsoft Technet pages to obtain more information. Microsoft implemented defragmentation and optimization software in the NTFS5 drivers but left it to third parties to use these in there software. See for instance Jkdefrag for one of these.Theking2 (talk) 10:49, 9 September 2012 (UTC)
