Quick overview of Vopt9
for Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, and Windows 7
Vopt lets you quickly defrag and pack your
disk drives to maintain optimal performance and reliability. Vopt's
speed makes daily defragging both practical and desirable. Vopt also
provides tools to assist you in maintaining your system, reclaiming wasted disk
space, and protecting your privacy.
Vopt offers many different lanquage
choices to give you the comfort of working in your own native language.
Main window map
Vopt's initial main display is a graphic map of the drive showing
which clusters are fully used, partially used, and free (unused). After you
do an analyze or defrag, the map shows which clusters contain normal files, fragmented files,
fixed (immovable) files, excluded files, metafiles, system restore files,
startup files, and the hiberfile.
When you click on the map after an analyze or
defrag, Vopt displays a window which lists the
files using that area. You can drag a file from the list and drop it into a
new location on the drive. Be sure to right-click on the list for options -- you
can even compress, uncompress, encrypt or decrypt files from this window.
- Defrag drive -
Defragments the currently selected drive.
- Analyze drive -
Determines and displays what each cluster of the drive is being used for
- Cleanup - Lets you view
and delete cookies, internet history, temporary files, the USN Journal, etc.
Cookies you don't want deleted ("Subscriptions") can be entered so
that you don't lose access to your favorite web sites when using cleanup.
- Defrag drive (tighter packing) -
Performs extra work to reduce the number of small gaps left after
defragmenting. This takes more time.
- Quick defrag (VSS compatible) - Files
larger than 64 MB are not defragmented, and file packing is minimal.
- Batch defrag - Defragments the multiple drives
you select, and turns off the system afterward if you like.
- Defrag pagefile - Defragments the pagefile.
- Exclusions - Lets you exclude files from
- Schedule - Lets you schedule automatic
- Advanced settings - Lets you set Vopt's relative
priority and other options for faster defragmenting.
an Analyze or Defrag, displays important information about the drive..
- Check disk for errors - Provides a more
informative access to Window's drive checking facility.
- Drive failure prediction - Checks the drives'
hardware status to ensure that they are in good working order.
- Drive performance - Provides a realistic
measurement of actual drive throughput.
The tools menu provides several useful tools for
viewing system information and enhancing performance.
- Maximum partition size: 16 TB
(terabytes) for volumes formatted with a normal 4096 byte cluster size. Larger
cluster sizes will increase capacity; smaller cluster sizes will decrease
capacity (e.g. 2 TB maximum for a 512 byte cluster
- NAS (Network Attached Storage) drives cannot
be defragmented, and are not displayed in Vopt's drive list.
