Defraging the MFT ?

By Blau67 ·
Can you defrag the MFT for either Fat32 or NTFS? Is this something done from command line? Also, any software available to assist in this procedure, preferably freeware!? I know this is probably a no brainer for most of you! Thanks for your help! Blau

There is a freeware version of Diskeeper (Diskeeper Lite) available at the Executive Software website (www.diskeeper.com).

It will defragment the MFT. It doesn't have all the bells and whistles that the full version has (like scheduling, boot-time defragmentation, etc.). Also it is the workstation version so it can't be installed on a server.

Tim it turns out only the full version defrags the MFT! However, the 'Lite'(free) version is great! Thanks for the tip! BLAU
