Application Defrag

This type of defrag pushes all commonly used programs and boot files to the edge of the hard drive for faster access. Windows XP normally schedules this every three days when it is idle, however you can force it to do this by using the b switch anytime

i.e defrag c: -b

    Would be better if you had more instructions as to how this is enabled ? Is this from the "Run" command ?

    If you read this you know how the Application Defragmenter works. ;) Defining the process of Application Defragmenter: ----------------------------------------------- This type of defragmenter pushes all commonly used programs and boot files to the edge of the hard drive, which yield faster access for the boot files and commonly used programs. Windows XP normally schedules this every three days, but if you do not let your computer idle very often, it's a good idea to use this tweak (Defragmenter). ------------------------------------------------------------------------- How to use: ----------- I have two ways of making this program work. The first way, which I think is the easiest way, is to just type "Defrag C: -b" in Run (DOS). The other is more complex, but saves you time. Open Notepad or Wordpad.. Type: "cmd /c start /Normal Defrag C: -b.exe" in Notepad or Wordpad Save the file as a .BAT file and close Notepad or Wordpad. As soon as you click the .BAT file you created, the Application Defragmenter will start up. (You're done) -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Now, if you do not use the C drive as your main hard drive, or you want to do an Application Defrag to your secondary Drive. Replace "C" with your secondary hard drive's letter. For Example, Open Run, which is in the start menu. Type in, "Defrag D: -b". And you're done.

    This page isn't wrong or too uninformative for most users interested in this topic. However, a novice or someone new to this may not know what this means.
