Original article for power defragmentor was posted here.

The never-ending two-step defragmenting process of Vista can soon become a thing of the past. With certain tools, we were able to cut defragmentation time of a 25 GB drive with Vista Ultimate on it from 82 minutes to 6 minutes!!! That is defragmenting 10X faster than the built-in Vista defragmenter! The tutorial also works with Windows 2000 and XP.

Right now, many things are probably whirling around in your head:
– Is this true? Yes, it is.
– Does it work? Yes. We will show you charts on hard drive fragments before and after defragmentation.
– This has got to cost money. Absolutely free.

These “certain tools” we will be using are called contig.exe and PowerDefragmenter.
When we used these two programs, the results were as follows:

Hard drive before defragmenting:
before defragmenting

8 minutes later:
6 minutes later

However, using the Windows Vista Defragmentation tool took longer… much longer. To further exaggerate the comparison, we ran the Vista Defragmentation Tool AFTER we had already defragmented that same drive with Contig and PowerDefragmenter. It took 8 minutes alone to analyze the drive. By now, contig.exe and powerdefragmenter would have already finished defragmenting a drive. On top of that, it took Windows Vista 75 more minutes to defragment the hard-drive. As you can easily see, the new tools we will introduce to you will greatly cut your defragmentation time.

Tutorial:
The two programs that we have talked about work together to defrag your computer.

Download powerdefrag archive containing contig.exe and Power Defragmenter

Once you have finished downloading the zip file unzip into a folder on your desk top.

No installation is required. The next step is to run Power Defragmenter. Click next, and you will arrive at the screen below:
unzipped files

You may then select from the following options:
run powerdefragmentor

Defragment File(s): Allows you to defragment up to 4 files

Defragment Folder(s): Allows you to defragment up to 4 folders

Defragment Disk: Allows you to defragment a disk

PowerMode(TM) Disk Defragmentation: Defragments at a power equivalent to two consecutive defragmentations.
To defragment your hard drive at the speed of light choose Powermode(TM)

After you click next, just choose the desired drive, and you’re good to go. When you are finished, the command prompt window will read “Windows Disk Defragmenter…”
