Hi,

your homepage says about the Defrag API:
Quote
MyDefrag is based on the Microsoft defragmentation library, which is only available for the Windows versions after Windows 2000, not for [...] Windows NT

According to the article 'Inside Windows NT disk defragmenting', the Defrag API is present in Windows NT 4.0 - there are defrag utils based on it working under NT4, but nothing as decent as MyDefrag. Sad

Offtopic: Forum software is a little old, SMF 1.1.8 is available. Smiley

Thanks for your remark, I appreciate it. The FAQ on the MyDefrag website contains an updated text, see Is there a version for Windows 3/95/98/ME/NT available?. I know about the new SMF version, but have not yet gotten around to downloading and installing it. I have made some custom changes so it takes some work.

So there isn't a chance, not even for the cmdline version. Bummer.

The problem is that I do not have access to an NT server. Perhaps it is possible to program around the system calls that NT is missing, but I cannot try. According to Wikipedia the market share of NT is between 0.02% and 0.09%, practically nothing, so I'm not inclined to spend a lot of time on it.
