defrag

Postby spiritfirst » Sat Jul 31, 2010 6:10 pm

since using jv16 2009, C drive defrag shows approx 80% red fragmented files that i cannot remove using standard windows system tools defrag methods.

is there a method using jv16 tools to clean these fragmented files out? or is this a nonissue?

Jv16 PowerTools doesn't contain/provide a defrag tool anymore. So there's no method in jv16 PowerTools to defragment those fragmented files.

Besides the File Defrag tool jv16 PowerTools had in earlier days was rather rudimentary and certainly not better than the one included with Windows.

thanks. when i analyze c drive for defrag, 78% of the drive indicates defragmented files, and windows xp>sys tools standard defrag tool does not remove these files. this problem started after utilizing jv16. any suggestions? i just downloaded ultimate defrag tool, but even it does seem to be touching the defragmented files.
could it be the jv16 software is storing files on c drive after disk cleanup etc?

What tools of jv16 PowerTools 2009 did you use exactly?

When you run Disk Wiper and abort the operation, it's possible large all or not fragmented files are left on the hard disk. It's not always easy to find those files for deletion. Also you can read this threads about it:
- viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1296&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=disk+wiper
- viewtopic.php?f=12&t=1286&start=0&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=disk+wiper
In one of those threads it appears Norton was the culprit.

When you run Registry Compactor some back-up files are left on the drives where the original storage files are located. To locate those files you can run jv16 PowerTools File Finder and do a search for "jv16pt_bak" (without quotes) and then let the tool delete the found files.

Also after running some other tools (Registry Cleaner, History Cleaner...) and you have choosen to let the program make back-ups of the fixed and/or deleted items, those back-ups are saved in the subdirectory \Backups of jv16 PowerTools.

There are some other temporary files created by the program wich are stored somewhere in the directory or subdirectories where the program is installed. Normally you can remove those files in jv16 PowerTools itself: look at Settings > Maintenance.
