After the last analysis of my volume v: I noticed the following entries in the logfile:

Volume mountpoint:          V:
Volume name:                \\?\Volume{6a2730b8-3ab7-11de-9e03-806e6f6e6963}

This is very disturbing since it indicates that the disk contains bad clusters while it does not. Moreover it says that all the disk space is allocated to that "file" even if it is marked to be 0 fragments (nonexisting?) Not to mention the total which counts approximately 1.5x of the real total bytes.

Where does MyDefrag get that data from?

The $BadClus:$Bad:$DATA file maps the entire disk, it has the exact same size as the disk. It's a sparse file, it does not actually occupy any space (only if there are bad clusters). In the next version I will change the program so it will hide this file from the list of largest items.

That's okay, but why is this sparse file not present on other volumes then? What made it suddenly appear out of the blue? It was not there before and the only way to make it vanish was to format that volume.

It is a worrying thing to see and it is inconvenient to format a volume each and every time it shows up Embarrassed Not to mention if it occurs to system partition  Shocked

There have been some changes in MyDefrag... don't worry, just ignore it.
