WinContig 1.35.02

WinContig is an unusual defrag tool which focuses on optimising files and folders rather than entire drives.

And so, when you launch the program, you don't see the standard list of installed drives. Instead the program wants you to add one or more "Objects", file or folder, which you'd like to be defragmented.

Once you've added, say, your \Program Files folder, though, things return to a more familiar pattern. So clicking an Analyze button will produce a report showing you all the fragmented files in your chosen location. And you can then defragment all (or just a selected few) of these in a click.

This is all simple enough, then. Although if you need more power, a closer look around the program reveals all kinds of interesting configuration options.

WinContig can delete temporary files from your system before it runs, for instance, improving defrag time. There's an option to launch a third-party cleanup tool, too, with the command line options of your choice.

The program will also by default ask if it can check your drive for errors before beginning any defrag, a sensible approach which should help to minimise problems.

And other options enable you to control WinContig's defrag strategy, or its process priority. You can specifically choose to include or exclude particular files or file types from the defrag. It's possible to save a particular set of files or folders in a profile, for easy recall and reuse later. And the entire program can be automated via command line switches, ideal if you'd like to run it from a script or as a scheduled task.

Version 1.35.02:
   - When using the /CLOSE switch, WinContig may not close the main window. Fixed.
   - Added the Turkish language module.
