Update: MyDefrag shut down on October 2015. The program, which has not received updates in a little over five years and the forum are no longer available. The reason given by the developer is that the hosting company shut down and that it did not make sense to move the project due to its state.
We have uploaded the latest working version of the program to our own server and removed links pointing to the website. You can download it with a click on the following link: MyDefrag-v4.3.1.zip
Please note that we don't support the program in any way, and that we cannot be held responsible for issues that occur when using the program. End
MyDefrag 4.0 was released two days ago after a series of beta releases and a name change from JkDefrag.
The new version has still all the traits of the popular JkDefrag. Interested users can take a look at the changes in this new version by hopping over to the
official forum and there the announcement made by the developer of the file defragmentation software.
The program uses the Microsoft defragmentation api and is considered to be one of the fastest resource friendly file defragmentation programs available for the Windows operating system.
Several options are added as start menu entries after installing the latest MyDefrag version on the computer system. This includes running an analysis of all connected hard drives, defragmenting all of them, running a fast optimize script or to optimize flash drives.
The real strength of MyDefrag are the extensive command line parameters and scripting possibilities that allow you to individualize the defragmentation process. Options include defining actions based on file type or age, and to create actions that run different commands on different volumes connected to the system.
Quite a few graphical user interfaces have been created for JkDefrag in the past. It is very likely that at least some of these will be made available for MyDefrag as well.
This will help inexperienced users and those that do not like working with the command line to make use of the full functionality of the file defragmentation software.
MyDefrag is available for 32-bit and 64-bit editions of Windows.
