Thumbs up MyDefrag + Jaspion Optimize System Disk Scripts

Hello everybody!

I am the author of the Jaspion Optimize System Disk Scripts for MyDefrag. The combination of MyDefrag with the Jaspion Scripts makes for very powerful and effective defragmentation, improving and stabilizing overall system performance.

The Jaspion Optimize System Disk Scripts are an enhancement to the already excellent MyDefrag program, improving defragmentation speed, and achieving more performance, while also adding to the usability of the program, making it easy to configure to suit specific conditions. This package is unparalleled in terms of performance and flexibility.

I hope you like this suggestion!

Feel free to make any comments, or ask any questions.

Jaspion Optimize System Disk Scripts can be found on the MyDefrag Forum with further information.

Thanks, I'll add that useful script to the already efficient MyDefrag. Are you the author of JKDefrag or is the same as MyDefrag?

I just wrote the Jaspion Scripts.

The author of JKDefrag and MyDefrag is Jeroen Kessels. MyDefrag is the continuation of JKDefrag.

Thanks, yes it's been a lot of effort, I just guess I got fascinated with the whole hard drive defragmentation / optimization issue.

I've just released a new version with improvements and fixes. Follow the link provided on the first post to find more information and files.

Jaspion, I'm curious if you have any data to support your comment that your scripts improve and stabilize overall system performance?

I'm not trying to challenge you or be smart, I'm just curious on any data that you have to verify this assertion.

I use the scripts myself on many different machines, and I do mean different, quite varying system configurations.

I have no data other than the performance gains I get from the machines I've tested this with. Some of the highlights of how the scripts work:

Hard drives don't have the same performance in every physical region of the disks. The beginning of the disk (outer regions) perform much faster than the end of the disk (inner regions). My Scripts try to take full advantage of this fact by strategic placement of files.

The Jaspion Scripts accelerate the most important data by placing them on the outer regions of the disk. Special system files are also placed at strategic positions, and the default parameters can be modified to suit specific conditions. After the first files in the fastest region there is a large free space area, which will contain most file operations and ensure their performance at top speed, therefore speeding up overall computer performance even during data-intensive tasks such as the System Restore service.

Next come the program files that haven't been placed yet, still at a fast region of the disk.

After them, another smaller free space area to complement the first.

Then e-mail databases, and another small free space area.

Finally, the rest of the files.

There are many details over which files are selected and excluded from each Zone. Basically the scripts try to maintain media files in place, accelerating only relevant program and system data.

The placement of all program and system data on a the fastest regions of the disk, along with a large amount of free space, ensures that most file operations will occur at this fast-performing area, which sufficient room for file shuffling, while your programs will be performing at a very good speed (your most-used programs will be accelerated to the max).

You can read the scripts yourself and see what they do. I'd be glad if you gave them a try and told me what results you got.

Feel free if you have any further questions.

Thank you, that was very informative. One more question....

Since moving to Windows 7, I've not found a need to use a 3rd party defragging tool. I've read that the Windows 7 tool is very good. Am I wrong? Do I need a 3rd party defragging tool if I'm running Windows 7 (64 bit)?

I don't find the Window's built-in tool sufficient for my needs. When I moved to Windows 7, I simply continued using MyDefrag as my defragmentation program, so I don't have first-hand experience with the Windows Defragmenter, but I also hear it's a lot better than previous versions. The main difference, basically, is that with MyDefrag you can extract more performance from the computer, and probably do faster defrags. MyDefrag, by the way, is based on the standard defragmentation API by Microsoft.

The objective of the Jaspion Scripts are: to accelerate relevant data as much as possible, to make file writing operations much smoother, to give the user very flexible control, and to achieve all this with fast defrag times. (Obviously the higher the Level of defragmentation, the longer it will take to complete. Fast subsequent defrags are achieved especially by Levels 1 and 2.)

So do you need this or not? It depends. Do you need to extract more performance from your PC? Are there any particular programs, games or any files that you need to perform top speed? If so, I wrote these Scripts to help in these sorts of situation.
