by Shivaranjan on August 1, 2007


The aim of this post is to let you know how to defragment a file or folder. You would have noticed that how painful it is defragment a voluminous hard disk drive as it may take lot of your time and sometimes you may have a situation such that you may want to defragment only a few large folders or files.

How to defragment a file or folder?

1. Firstly go and download Wincontig freeware from Snapfiles.com (Mirror)

2. After you have downloaded, unzip the files in a directory of your choice and launch the program.

3. Once the program gets launched go to file menu and select the files or folder of your choice. (refer to the screenshot below, click to enlarge)


4. Now analyze the file or folder, after you have added them. Now start the defragmentation process by clicking the Defrag button.


5. The defragmentation process would finish based on the size of your file or folder. Once the defragmentation process is completed now you should see a report that gives you the details on the files that were defragmented.


Defragmentation of file or folder would definitely be useful when you are running short of time, I hope you found this useful. Give me your feedback on this?

Cobra File Defrag will do this as well, but makes it easier through a Windows Explorer style interface (www.CobraApps.com)
