I created a new 'boot' zone in my scripts
ImportListFromFile("C:\Program Files\MyDefrag v4.1.2\Scripts\Boot.Lst")
This idea here is to speed up boot times. As the windows one puts things in there that I haven't touched in a year. I would use hibernate but for some reason my laptop likes to wake up in the middle of the night and then never go off again. So I shutdown at night.
Here is what I do to get Boot.Lst. I use procmon from MS.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx
ProcMon has an option to run a trace while the computer is starting up. I do one cycle of that. Then I start procmon up again. This then informs me that I have a boot trace. I save it (it will be big). I then set the filter on the program to only show things from the C:\ drive (as some programs just open c: those are volume requests). Also filter out anything from procmon itself (procmon.pmb, and procmon64.exe, as it will be creating that crazy huge log). I then also exclude \* (as some programs open up things like this). I could add this to my script but this is just a quick and dirty way to get what I want quickly.
Then I open up tools->file summary. This gives a very nice list of total time spent in each file which I sort by. The idea here is to move the slowest files to the front of the disk. I then save this file as startlist.csv. I then run my python script against it to strip out the extra junk. I then redirect the output into Boot.Lst.
This shaved off a few seconds off my boot. Now if I can just figure out why media center likes to take over my computer at boot to get it schedules I would be good.
I did my zones like this ntfssystemfiles/directories/mybootlist/importlistfrombootoptimize/otherfiles/spacehogs.
I have also noticed that procmon doesnt track time totally accurately though. As when running mydefrag it will show many files taking 0 seconds on 15 gig files being moved to the end of the disk.
