    Hey all, and seasons greetings. :)

    I recently started using UltimateDefrag 1.72 and it has the capability to move unused files to the end of the drive for archiving. I love the idea in principle, but when I set it to automatically archive 25% of my least used files, it ends up archiving things like picture albums that I don't access very often, but when I do I don't wanna have to wait.

    So my question is, if I wanted to simply enter my own custom folders for archiving, what would be some good candidates? I wouldn't mind archiving some stuff, but I'm afraid I'll end up regretting it and then have to spend a boatload of time undoing it, or that they might actually be files my system uses on a regular basis.

    Are there any that would give the best bang for the buck? What about cabinet files for example? I know they're huge, do they mostly just sit there?

    Why dont you use exclusion feature? You just excluse your image folder to be archived in options menu.
