O&O Defrag Professional Edition v12.0.197 | 16.3 MB
O&O Defrag puts is a replacement for the standard Windows defragmenter, that offers a much advanced set of features. It puts fragmented files together and maximizes your system speed and offers five different defragmentation strategies, as well as OneButtonDefrag technology for automatic adjustment of the settings best fitting for your system. The program can defragment drives manually, or fully automatic in the background, keeping your system at peak performance by avoiding build-up of file fragmentation. Defragmentation jobs can also be scheduled, using various criteria. Additional features include status reports, cluster inspector, command line interface, optional MMC integration, boot time defragmentation, special support for mobile systems and more. O&O Defrag solves the performance and stability problems of Windows workstations and servers caused by fragmented hard disks. Fragmentation is the main cause of significant losses in performance in Windows.
Due to the fact that the hard disk is the slowest component of a computer, its optimization is an especially important issue. By using O&O Defrag, files can be read and written much more quickly. What at first seems to be lost performance can easily be rediscovered and realized again with O&O Defrag, giving you the peace of mind that your hardware is in good health and operating optimally.
The new O&O Defrag 12 Professional Edition unleashes the hid-den performance of your computer. O&O Defrag optimizes your hard disk and effciently packs fle fragments together again. O&O Defrag 12 is everything superior defragmentation software should be: it gives you fully automatic defragmentation for the home user as well as expert-level professional setting options.

New functions in version 12:
All your system‘s fles will be sorted by O&O Defrag 12 according to their level of use, and each one will be separated into its own section of the hard disk. Thanks to the division into drive zones, all fles are rearranged optimally after the defragmentation. O&O Defrag 12 introduces 3 new defragmentation methods, which work perfectly in combination with the previous methods. All of this will allow you to start your computer and its programs faster than before, and actually prevent any sudden increase in fragmentation. In addition, subsequent defragmentations will run much faster. Zone fling can also be supplemented by a user defned fle organization.
Creation and consequence of fragmented fles
Fragmentation can drastically slow your computer down. When saved by the operating system, fles are broken into fragments and dispersed across the entire hard disk. Increased fragmentation ends up having an extremely negative effect on your access times. O&O Defrag is the perfect remedy. A defragmentation rearranges the individual data fragments and writes them contiguously on the hard disk. This is really the only way for your computer to regain its original power and performance.
The data is inspected according to set criteria, and then fled into separate zones on the hard disk. A special algorithm organizes the data optimally onto the disk following the defragmentation. System fles which have to be accessed quickly, for example, will be separated from the rest. Between the zones there is free space so that new fles can be immediately moved to the correct zone. This logical organization considerably reduces the time needed for future fragmentation, and also prevents new fragmentation from occurring in the frst place.
Automatic defragmentation run
The O&O-OneClickDefrag wizard makes it easier to select the optimal strategy for automatic defragmentation. Depending on how you use your computer, whether for gaming or for work, O&O Defrag confgures different strategies and combinations for automatic defragmentation, and over time, even adapts to new circumstances. In addition, you can set O&O Defrag to start the defragmentation whenever a certain fragmentation level is reached on the hard disk or partition. The defragmentation can be run on a certain day of the week, or whenever your screen saver is active. You can stop or resume the defragmentation whenever you wish, since O&O Defrag immediately recognizes where the defragmentation was stopped.
Power Management for Netbooks and Notebooks
The O&O IntelligentPowerControl technology ensures a special support for mobile systems. As soon as your Internet or notebook is separated from external power resources, O&O Defrag switches to a standby mode and the defragmentation is paused. This guarantees that no battery power is used for defragmentation, and you can fnish your work with all available power resources. Once you reconnect your notebook, the defragmentation will be automatically resumed.
