ideal defrag method for my hard drives?

Beitragvon evan900 » Do 10. Nov 2016, 04:36

I wanted to say first, thanks OO for the best defrag around :)

I at times get confused on what defrag methods to use. I know some tips are at:
https://docs.oo-software.com/en/oodefra ... on-methods

However, I still get a bit confused, and worried if I use the wrong defrag method.
Which would be preferred for a data drive? It has many files, about 100k, almost every file is on that drive.
Should I not use zones for that drive? Stick with Complete/name, then SPACE for monthly defrags?

How about my main drive? It has the OS on it, with my programs, thats about all it has.
Should I use zone defrag on that drive?

Thanks as always OO!

Hello,

there is no such thing like "wrong defrag method". Of course the "best" method depends on the usage of your computer. Personally I would recommend COMPLETE/Name for the system volume and SPACE for the data volumes.

Thanks Martin, you actually helped me a lot over the years :)

When you say system volumes, you mean the HDD with the OS on it? I keep the OS on a HDD with some music files, and my programs. Thats really about all I use that one HDD for. So system, or OS volumes, COMPLETE/Name?

And my big HDD with many files, videos, photos, music, etc. SPACE is good there.


I also have a HDD with my games only on it, I suppose that too is data volume, so COMPLETE/Name then just monthly SPACE defrag for this HDD?

Thanks Martin again :)

Hello,

thank you for your feedback. For system volumes, where the Windows System is running on, the COMPLETE/Name method is the best option.
For data volume the SPACE method.

If you have a "Games only" hard drive, most cutomers prefer Complete/Name for such drives, but SPACE would be also a good option.
