Overview of WinContig
WinContig is a very powerful and easy-to-use stand-alone defragmentation tool for Windows. Its purpose is to quick defragment files without the need to defragment the whole disk.
File fragmentation causes the hard disk to do extra work, reducing the performance of the system and slowing down the process of reading and writing data. WinContig consolidates fragmented files by using kernel-mode interface library functions developed by Microsoft, so performing defragmentation process is safe and there is no risk of losing data when a file is moved, even in the event of a power loss.
WinContig supports defragmentation of files stored in hard disk drives (HDD) and solid state drives (SSD).
Most defragmentation programs perform a general defragmentation of an entire partition. In a real-life scenario, you often want to defragment a single file or a directory, for example to improve the loading speed of a program file, or to reduce the loading time of a certain disk intensive application like a game. In order to get the best possible performance, you can move files to the faster area of your drive and place your rarely used data onto the slower area of your drive.
WinContig has been designed specifically to meet the needs of users who focus mainly on files and folders rather than an entire disk.
Its ability to filter files by several criteria combined with its ability to be controlled via command-line switches, make WinContig the perfect tool to defragment particular files that are frequently used and continuously becoming fragmented. Also, WinContig optionally allows you to analyze and/or defragment files and folders directly from the context menu of File Explorer.
