Even running highlight script is faster (with the added positive of filebooleans).
HDView needs about the same analysis time as MyDefrag. And you have to restart MyDefrag every time you want to highlight other files.
Ok, that time it might have been a fluke. I remember hdview taking like 3-5 minutes to analyze my system volume. Now I timed it and it is within 10-20% the same as MyDefrag (more dependent on disk caching though).
and file flashes for only a second? And if the file is not in the current view highlight does nothing.
Nope, the file(s) stay highlighted, even those currently not visible in the zoomable view.
Maybe you used an older version of HDView?
Hmm, indeed I was. But aside from fragmentation list, I can see no difference. I'm not sure what was happening when I tried to use it before, now I see highlighting. Except there's still a problem: current view doesn't move to where found file is. If file is small, it's not seen on the whole map on the right. So I have to find it with another command, double-click to see LCN, remember LCN, close that window and manually scroll till I find that LCNs region. Am I missing something again?
And still, wouldn't it be great to test FileBooleans without reanalyzing the disk each time?...
