DefragPJD Disk Optimization
This document describes DefragPJD Disk Optimization
which is an implementation of the MyDefrag program by
J. C. Kessels.
The scripts re-arrange and defragment files on the harddrive for improved performance.
Download / Install
Click the following link: DefragPJD, and download the file
Unzip the file to a convenient location. This will create a sub-directory named "DefragPJD".
Defrag and Optimization
In the DefragPJD sub-directory created above, locate and Double-Click the program:
This will display available scripts and disks.
Script "pjdAnalyze" will display the selected disk's layout, and write the file
"pjdAnalyze.log" to the DefragPJD sub-directory, but make no changes to any disks.
Click View, then toggle DiskMap/Statistics to see the layout or log file.
Script "pjdSysMonthly" optimizes a system-volume by moving and defragging boot and
small files to the beginning of the volume, followed by file-system and directory files,
medium and scratch files, and finally 'spacehog' files (large and not-often accessed).
Script "pjdSysWeekly" attempts to "cleanup" the zones created by "pjdSysMonthly" without
moving too much data.
Run "pjdAnalyze" after optimization to obtain a final report, if desired.
If you want to save the "before" log, rename "pjdAnalyze.log" prior
to this second execution, as it will be overwritten.
Paging File Placement
If you run script "pjdAnalyze" and see that PageFile.sys (it will be colored
crimson) is not in a good location (Google this for discussions) or is fragmented, you can
use the scripts beginning with "pjdPage" to exactly place (and defrag) it.
See file "pjdPageProcedure.txt" in the DefragPJD sub-directory for details.
