MFT Fragmentation

After installing your XP/2000 PC with all software and data. Run at Cmd line like FOR /L %f in (1,1,10000) do md %f

And then (not on root dir. C:\) FOR /L %f in (1,1,50000) do echo Hey > %f

This will create 10000 dir and 50000 files that you can delete. This increases the MFT size. Download Diskkeeper demo. Run MFT defrag once and you will probaby never need it again :).

    Diskeeper 9 can allocate free space in the MFT; there is no need for the trick with dummy files and folders. P.S. the demo version (Professional) can do that as well.

    Nice trick, but works just with files, dirs dont allocate space constantly, after delete of dirs they will dissapear from disc space. It will work just like with files, somne records ll be allocated in MFT. There no need to make dirs. It's a good idea to use that easy trick, it can give you some higher performansce, when the disc is full in over 87.5%.

    Ought to be a nice feature, but Diskeeper 10 knows also a function for padding the MFT file. The fragmentation of C:$Extend$UsnJrnl:$J:$DATA is an issue with Vista systems and far more worse than the few fragments a MFT could have. Though, the trick works fine for me and the MFT is not fragmented, but for the purpose of C:$Extend$UsnJrnl:$J:$DATA I need a special defragmenter that can solve it (paragon partition manager's defrag form bootable ISO). I've found no other way to sove the heavy fragmentation of C:$Extend$UsnJrnl:$J:$DATA. After PPM it is now 3 fragments instead of 12.749 fragments. Not only the MFT is an issue by Vista.

    you people are stupid.....access is denied because you morons do not realize it is creating a file called 1 when a folder called 1 already exists...run the second loop inside one of the 10000 dirs created.
