WinContig DOWNLOAD Freeware - Defragmentation tool

WinContig is an easy-to-use standalone executable defragmenter. It doesn’t create any installation directories or Registry entries on your computer.

Its goal is to shortly defragment files without the necessity to defragment the entire disk. In addition, WinContig allows you to group files and folders into profiles for processing later.

WinContig supports FAT32 and NTFS file systems and it works with Hard Disks and SSDs.

Most defragmentation tools carry out basic defragmentation of a whole partition. In a real-life situation, you usually wish to defragment a single file or a directory, for example, to enhance the loading speed of a program file, or to reduce the loading time of a certain disk-intensive application like a game.

WinContig has been designed particularly to satisfy the wants of users who focus primarily on files and folders relatively than a complete disk.

Its ability to filter files by several criteria combined with its ability to be managed through command-line switches, make WinContig the proper tool to defragment specific files which might be regularly used and repeatedly turn fragmented.

To start using it, simply extract the contents of the ZIP archive to any folder you want, and run it. Its defragmentation and analysis engine relies on the standard Microsoft defragmentation API.

The WinContig supports two different defragmentation methods:

This application is launched as freeware for private and industrial use.
