OS: XP Home (sp2) PD version: 7.0 (Build 46) I have a couple of questions regarding PerfectDisk 7.0. QUESTION 1: After performing my usual nightly defrag (first off-line, followed by SmartPlacement)....I noticed that the MFT Zone has greatly DECREASED in size. Usually the MFT Zone occupied about 5-6 FULL lines. It's been that way since I installed and performed the very first defragmentation. Now the MFT Zone has shrunk (see pic below) to about 11 squares/blocks. http://img362.imageshack.us/img362/5771/image16xh.jpg Is this normal and how does something like this just happened? I've always had the "Aggressive Free Space Consolidation" option marked under Online Degrag settings properties. QUESTION 2: Also I have noticed a SLOWDOWN when performing on-line defrags (even after doing an off-line defrag first). Recently I have installed FD-ISR w/ 2 created snapshots. PerfectDisk seems to take extra long between 51% - 78% of the defrag process. In total, it's taking about 25 mins to perform a defragmentation on a 80GB hard drive with 26.2 GB of data. Is this too slow or about right? Any help/info would be appreciated. Thanks.
