Release Announcements


Perking right along through the heat of summer, the dev team has released the latest version of Defraggler. We've got a couple of new features, performance improvements, and the usual bits and bobbles.

1. Command-Line Quick Defrag

The last version of Defraggler (v1.12) introduced Quick Defrag, a drop-down selection in the main Defraggler window you can use to run a much faster, though slightly less efficient defrag.

For those of you running Defraggler from the command line, you can now instruct it to use the Quick Defrag option. Here's the syntax:

df.exe [file or filemask or folder or drive label] /QD

To see all of the command-line options, type df.exe /? at a command prompt, or see this topic:

2. Folder Index entries

Microsoft Windows stores information about files in folders in a hidden file called the folder index. For example, if you create a file in a folder, that folder's index will contain the filename, creation timestamp, an archive bit, and more.

Advanced users may want to view folder index entries in the file list viewable after you analyze a drive.

To set folder index entries as viewable, click Settings, then click Options… On the General tab, click Show folder index entries in file list, and then click OK.

The folder index entries will show up as [Folder Entry] in the list.
