Almost a year ago I wrote about defraging drives from the command line.
I got an email from John that week:
“Hi Steve, I wanted to let you know about a free defragmentation tool. It is called UltraDefrag. It can defrag drives, Registry hives, and the paging file”
It took me a while, but I just checked it out – and it is a great tool.
Almost every feature of it can be called from the command line using the command line interface.
The drive and file defrag shows the blocks it is moving (Reminiscent of the old Norton defrag)
After your defrag is complete you can get an HTML report of its progress:
If you want to scan files in use (Like the registry hives, and the paging file) you can enable a boot time scan:
To show you how easy it is to run from the command line, here are some simple examples:
Defrag the C Drive:
Defrag a specific file and folder:
udefrag C:\Windows\WindowsUpdate.log “C:\Program Files”
Analyze all drives (Don’t defragment):
udefrag -a –all-fixed
