Move the selected files to the end of the disk. More specifically:
for every selected file try to find a gap above that file big enough
to hold the file, and move the file to the end of that gap. If no gap is
found then skip the file.
- Files are automatically defragmented when they are moved.
- This action is relatively slow, best to be used for big files only. It's
because the Microsoft defragmentation API is not very efficient in finding the
last gap suitable for a file.
- The end of the disk is the slowest part of the disk. Many people want to
move the spacehogs zone (with less important files that take up a lot of
space) to the end of the disk, leaving a huge empty gap between the regular
files and the spacehogs. In my opinion this is a waste of perfectly good
harddisk space and makes the spacehogs slower than they need to be.
This is why the standard MyDefrag scripts do not move the spacehogs to
the end of the disk.
