Files are often stored in different locations that slow down system performance. This feature defragments vital files, such as page files and registry hives for improving the performance of the system. Defragmenter reduces the number of fragments and clubs all the fragments into one contiguous chunk to improve system performance.
To defragment page files and registry hives, follow these steps:
- Select Tuneup > Defragmenter.
Two options for defragment appear: Enable defragmentation and Cancel defragmentation. Cancel defragmentation is selected by default.
- Select Defragment at next boot to perform defragmentation the next time you start the system; else select Defragment at every boot to perform defragmentation every time you start the system.
- Defragment system paging file (Virtual Memory) and Defragment Windows Registry are not selected by default. You can select any of these two or both for the Defragmenter to perform. We recommend that you keep these options selected.
- Click the Apply button to save these settings, or else click Close to exit without saving.
