Please add a feature to defrag and compact MFT like Paragon Total Defrag 2010.

Thank you.

MyDefrag is able to defragment the MFT, however it cannot compact it and will most likely never be able to. See this thread for further information.

The only case in which there may be need to compact the MFT is when you copy a lot of files and directories on your disk and then delete them without intending to put such structure back on your disk again. And even in that case you can most probably live on withut compacting it. Actually with enough free space within your MFT your system doesn't need to allocate new MFT clusters when new files or directories are added so the MFT doesn't get fragmented during normal use.
