ApowerREC è uno screen recorder professionale per Windows

Con il passar del tempo, dopo la creazione e la cancellazione di molti documenti, il file system finisce con il frammentarsi ed il sistema diventa inevitabilmente più lento. Questo accade perché i dati vengono salvati in maniera frammentata e, a causa di questo, l'hard dsk deve lavorare molto di più. Total Defrag 2010 è una soluzione completa per la deframmentazione e l'ottimizzazione del disco fisso. E' basato sulle tecnologie originali di Paragon ed effettua una deframmentazione a basso livello che aumenta le prestazioni del disco riducendo la frammentazione a zero.

Permette di:

  • Effettua una deframmentazione a basso livello che aumenta le prestazioni del disco riducendo la frammentazione a zero.
  • Velocizza ed ottimizza tutti i file di sistema ed i metadata, compresi MFT (Master File Table), directory, file di paging, chiavi di registro e molto altro.
  • Ottimizza il file system usando 9 strategie diverse.
  • Due modalità di deframmentazione disponibili: Veloce o Sicura. Quella sicura è più lenta ma evita la perdita di dati in caso di mancanza di alimentazione elettrica.
  • Paragon Total Defrag funziona anche senza installazione. Basta creare un CD o DVD bootabile ed usarlo per avviare il sistema da velocizzare.
  • E molto altro...

Limitazioni: L'Edizione Speciale non supporta i sistemi a 64-bit.

mi spiace a chi non è arrivato il seriale, a me è arrivato regolare. Installato e cancellato ... Perchè? Semplicemente perchè a metà il processo di defrag si è piantato (ho aspettato 20' ma la barra non si è schiodata e il tempo passava solo sul mio orologio), quanto ho premuto [esc] come suggerito mi ha avvertito che avrei perso tutti i dati della partizione che stavo deframmentando. Panico assoluto, ma visto che non c'era scelta ho proseguito l'operazione ... tutto e terminato bene (lo scandisk di windows ha detto che è tutto era a posto), ma non mi piace essere minacciato quindi ...
Aspetto altre opinioni, io non lo riprovo più :-/

Sul portatile con W7 mi ha combinato un casino! Si è piantato e ora mi toccherà ripristinare sperando che funzioni...
Sconsigliato.

@"domanda stupida?"
in effetti, in teoria, avresti ragione a pensarla così, in realtà molti programmi di default di windows sono carenti . Prendi per esempio il firewall di windows oppure il registratore di suoni ecc.: svolgono funzioni molto elementari e probabilmente non sufficienti.

@Ugo, mi pare che questo SW funzioni in maniera un pò particolare: a me ha chiesto di riavviare il PC per poter operare in modalità provvisoria . Sarà anche un buon programma, ma il fatto che non sia possibile effettuare la deframmentazione continuando ad usare normalmente il PC è parecchio scomodo (devo dire che non ho ancora ben analizzato il funzionamento del programma, probabilmente selezionando la modalità "deframmentazione rapida" questo non avverrebbe). Insomma funziona un pò come lo scan disk: il disco C non deve essere in uso.

@Max e Barbara, a me la email contenente il seriale è arrivata immediatamente. Una volta che avrete ricevuto i codici di sblocco, non tentate di individuare la finestra di registrazione del programma in cui incollare il seriale poiché, una volta ricevuta l'email, il programma risulta già automaticamente registrato, come potrete verificare effettuando il login nel vostro account di "paragon" (nella stessa email troverete anche la password per l'accesso al vostro account).
Fermo restando che sono scarso, l'impressione è che sia un buon programma, ma occorre studiarselo un pò perché il suo utilizzo non è proprio di immediata comprensione.

Scusate l'ignoranza ma come può funzionare meglio del Defrag gia presente a standard Windows? Funzionalità esistente da anni, testata infinite volte, e creata da Microsoft (azienda enormente più potente in termini di risorse umane, monetarie, ecc..)

Hi all!!


This is SPECIAL ONE!!


ULTIMATE DEFRAG FREE EDITION (just 2.43 MB vs 87 MB of today's giveaway...what the hell???) is much better than both this GAOTD and all the defrag free alternatives listed on the GAOTD American forum!!!

Why??

Simply because it's more than just a defragger!!!

In fact ULTIMATE DEFRAG is also a hard drive file placement optimizer that enables users to defrag and place their files in the areas on their HD where they can achieve maximum performance, taking into account that on average 80% of the time PC owners only use about 20% of the files stored on their hard drive.

ULTIMATE DEFRAG is different than other defrag applications out there since it's able to detect and send your rarely used files onto the slower performing areas of your HD making your DRIVE perform as quick as a new and almost empty one!!

And it's the best fast reliable defrag tool out there even if you don't want to use (all of) its ADVANCED OPTIONS and simply want an ordinary defrag by selecting the "AUTO option", because it uses effective “in- place” defragging algorithms for fast, reliable and complete defrags.


Highly recommended!!

Non riesco ad avviare la deframmentazione, mi dice di riavviare per completare il processo e poi ritorna al punto di partenza una volta riavviato il PC.
Succede anche a voi?

@Ashraf Why would anyone want to defrag a flash drive? There's no mechanical drive head that needs to move around the platter(s) - there aren't any - and data are accessed electronically. Anyone trying to sell you a defragger for flash drives speculates on your lack of knowledge. These programs are not only an utter waste of money and disk space they even shorten the lifetime of your flash drive.

Ignore Ashraf's "review", defragmenting is a technical issue. I strongly recommend against installing or using Paragon Total Defrag, I won't be testing it because I looked at the information on their website.

Issues with defragmenting:

Is it necessary? Depends. File fragmentation generally doesn't matter a lot, although heavy fragmentation of frequently-used files or the particular files that you're using can impact performance. Pagefile fragmentation can slow your PC to a crawl.

Is there an advantage in using a third-party defragmenter on Vista and higher? Well, I haven't used the Vista defragmenter, but as far as I know, it's OK, not great. You'll still need to use other software to defragment your system files, particularly the pagefile. Pre-Vista, use something decent, not the Windows defragmenter.

Do file optimization strategies matter? Depends. Generally, on Vista and higher, not much, as multiple running tasks tend to randomize disk access. The beginning (outer) tracks of non-RAID disks are generally faster, so moving files there can help a lot if there's a lot of free space on the disk. Some optimization strategies are designed to improve the performance of subsequent defragmentations.

What should I look for in a defragmenter? First and foremost, safety. Paragon immediately fails because it offers an unsafe mode. All decent defragmenters use the Windows defragmentation API. Part of safety involves knowing what files not to move, and having solid code. Well-established commercial defragmenters excel there. Optimization strategies can matter, mostly to speed up subsequent defrags. The ability to fully defragment the disk, including system files. While some system files like the pagefile can only be defragmented while Windows isn't running, Paragon fails because their website says that it won't defragment system volumes at all while Windows is running. Scheduling and the ability to defragment multiple volumes is necessary, which again, Paragon fails. Using a boot disk to defragment is also a fail. Decent defragmenters can defragment system files after Windows loads its drivers but before starting Windows itself.

What do I need to do to fully defragment my volumes? On Vista (and probably Windows 7), you'll need to set it to not delete the pagefiles on shutdown (the pagefiles can't be defragmented if they don't exist), and you should use fixed-size pagefiles, as dynamic pagefiles will fragment at runtime. The pagefile deletion is a "security" feature, but that's a joke, because it's simply marked deleted, not overwritten. Windows itself tracks and occasionally places and defragments boot files (those used shortly after Windows starts). Decent defragmenters will cooperate with Windows on those. Even on NTFS volumes, you should run a disk check before defragmenting. Vista only allows a single volume to be scheduled, and on my PC, it isn't releasing the volume, so I can't also schedule a boot-time defrag. Actually, I only run a disk check if there was a crash; Vista maintains volume integrity during normal operation. The security descriptors can get all messed up by a crash, so I recommend doing a disk check as soon as possible.

Can I defragment external drives? That primarily depends upon the external drive hardware. Some allow it, some don't.

Should I defragment RAID volumes? With RAID, at least the higher levels, the files are scattered (physically fragmented in large blocks) anyway, but defragmenting cleans up the Windows file tables, which may help slightly.

What defragmenters are available? Lots. Personally, I use Raxco PerfectDisk Professional. The defragmentation itself is solid, it was the first to fully defragment the entire volume (by many years), it has a good optimization strategy, no volume size limits, it's been the first to obtain Microsoft certification in recent years, and doesn't have a reputation for bad coding like some others. Having said that, it's certainly not flawless. I don't know if they ever fixed the idle-time (automatic) scheduling, but that never worked when I tried it. Free-space consolidation doesn't work very well on Vista because so much disk writing is going on all the time, at least on my system. The UI has some minor problems. You can try others, like Diskeeper, but PerfectDisk had several features many years before Diskeeper, some Diskeeper versions had bad coding, and I think that their essentially continuous defragmentation defeats some of the purpose of defragmenting in the first place, which is to improve performance (it has to have some performance impact). In terms of freeware, people often mention MyDefrag, but if you check the version history, it has an astounding number of bugs. For defragmenting the pagefile(s), you can use PageDefrag.

#15, oblivion, Windows adjusts the size of the MFT as needed.

The Good
* Straightforward and fairly easy to use.
* Allows for defrag and compacting of MFT along with the norm disk defrag.
* Gives users the option to select how to order files/directories.
* Supports internal and external (USB/Firewire) hard drives.
* Can create a bootable CD/DVD or USB/flash drive for defraging without loading Windows.
* Ability to automatically shutdown computer after defrag has finished.

The Bad
* Total Defrag 2010 does have 64-bit support, but today's giveaway of Special Edition does not support 64-bit.
* Huge file size (~75 MB)!
* Lacks any sort of automatic defrag feature (no scheduler or anything similar).
* Does not support USB/flash drive defrag.
* Can only defrag one partition at a time.

87megs for a simple defrag program? Are the developers off their nut?

No offence intended, but this will only exacerbate the issue of disc clutter if you have to install a simple utility that is this large. Honestly, there is nothing this version can do that can't be done by several of the under 10meg or even 5meg sized defrag programs which are available.

The best way to drive customers away from buying your product is to make it hugely bloated and inefficiently coded. This seems to fit that model. :/

I've often used an earlier version of Paragon's Total Defrag & it works well. With a multi-boot system I normally defrag drives/partitions while they're not in use -- you simply cannot move a file Windows is using while it's using it -- but working *around* immovable files is standard & better than not defragging at all. Paragon & some others have bootable Linux discs you can use, so Windows isn't fired up & no files are immovable, but these are generally slower in my experience -- if I'm going to do it that way I prefer booting into a WinPE sort of environ [I use LiveXP]. Total Defrag used to be almost the only app to work on/with the Master File Table [MFT]. And as usual, Paragon includes some bells & whistles that make it stand out from the competition, if you're the sort who likes the bells & whistles.

Before using any de-fragmenting software I suggest reading the FAQ etc at Mydefrag.com, which lists some Windows bugs & limitations that you should be aware of. Remember that A/V software might slow things down tremendously if it monitors every read/write during defrag, so if/as necessary unplug that network cable or whatever, but just turn it off. Nor is there any sense normally to defragging files you're not going to keep -- getting rid of any or at least old, unused system restore points only makes sense... they can *Really* slow things down if you're defragging an XP system partition/drive from outside XP. If I'm defragging or backing up a Windows system partition/drive while that Windows install isn't running, I also delete the pagefile.sys & hiberfil.sys files -- they'll just be re-written when I fire it up, hopefully without fragmentation on the newly organized partition/drive. MyDefrag can check & log fragmentation status by file if you like to double check.

RE: Hard drive De-fragmentation...
A regular hard drive [not ssd] has a spinning platter(s) [disk] that the data's stored on. The heads that do the data reading & writing obviously have to travel from the inside of the disk(s) to the outside & back which takes time, & so the less movement you have, the more efficient and faster reading/writing to the disk happens. Think of a record player or CD/DVD where the tone arm or laser have to move much less because everything's stored sequentially -- de-fragmenting a hard drive means storing data the same way, so that this movement is minimized,

The storage space on a hard drive is divided up by Windows' file system artificially into chunks where the data can be stored. Defragging a hard drive means making sure that all the data making up every file is laid out sequentially, like on a CD/DVD/vinyl record, lining these chunks of data up in a row. The heads still have to move across the disk to read/write different files, but at least for any single file they don't have to. Optimizing the hard drive means using a strategy that further organizes stored data by placing certain types of files together in different places on the disk(s).

Like a CD/DVD/vinyl record, or even the tire/wheel on your car or bike, circumference increases the further you get from the center -- you'll go farther with every, single revolution of a 16" tire/wheel than you will with a 12" tire/wheel. In a hard drive this means that at the outer edges the head can read more data before it has to move inward. If you can guess what data your PC/laptop needs to read/write most often, making sure that happens towards the outer edge of the disk make things more efficient, & so faster. This poses two challenges -- 1) how good of a guess did you make, & 2) it has to take longer to more-or-less totally reorganize all that data. The 1st is met by studying what works best for most people. As for the 2nd, all you can do is console yourself that next time won't take so long, &/or optimize less often.

Now, if you've got an old clunker of a car it might be fine for running local errands, but you might hesitate taking it on a long trip -- problems could crop up from the extra stress & constant use. De-fragmenting, & optionally optimizing a hard drive is sort of like taking that very long trip. And you might be writing data to a part of the disk where no data has been for quite some time -- you don't know if the destination is actually good or not. Taking a trip in that clunker you might stick to a safer route, with plenty of help along the way, just in case. The equivalent defragging a hard drive is to check every bit of data that's been re-written, just to make sure. Obviously that takes much longer. Whether it's worth it or not is up to you. If you take a newer car on vacation you might be more concerned with getting there as fast as possible.

USB sticks, or any memory for that matter, have no moving parts. Flash memory, like that in USB sticks or SSD drives, has a finite lifespan -- eventually it'll die. When it designed Ready Boost for Vista (& kept it for 7) Microsoft developed a method to prolong the life of the flash memory Ready Boost uses -- by making sure reading/writing was randomly spread across the storage areas they found flash memory lasts much longer. There is some debate on should you/shouldn't you defrag your USB stick(s) -- personally I say no, but you're welcome to come to your own conclusions, & can always Google for more info.
