mft files
« on: February 11, 2011, 03:33:44 PM »
Hi
I found out recently, that the MFT files in my machine are fragmented to 3  fragments, is that something I should be concerned about? [Tried to defragment on boot with no success]

According to Microsoft, it is vitally important performance-wise to defragment the MFT and paging files. However, it is only safe to do so using boot-time defragmentation.

And this will help you get the job done :wink:
