    I am using the Ultimate Defrag Free Edition for normal defrag once a week.I also would like to defrag the MFT.But I am reading some posts about how problematic the boot time defrags are.
    My question is:Is it safe to use the MFT defrag in the free version(1.72) of ultimate defrag.If it is safe to use; should I check the ''respect layout.ini.''
    I also have the Paragon Hard Disk Manager 8.5 Special Edition.It also has MFT defrag option.Is it safe ?
    Which one should I use?How often do I have to defrag the MFT? Thanks in advance.
    I had used page defrag from before,but I know it does not defrag the MFT.
