It claims to put more frequently used files toward the outer edge of the disk in order of the access stats. I wonder how well it works on my systems because I always disable NTFS file last accessed time tracking to reduce the number of disk accesses. I can visibly see the difference on my machines. The access light blinks less and the machine is a bit spiffier. But that's just my preference.

The outer edge is supposedly faster on most HD. So it tries to push everything toward the outer edge. PIOZR would have to do with the order of the files. Most used closest to the edge. For me directory and boot file optimization probably has more effect because they're not governed by NTFS file access tracking.

I only defrag with those options about once or twice a week. The rest of the time I do a quickie with all options off. Then again I run with my system disk at over 80% space free. Defrags are quick when you have all that free space to work with. Once a week or so I clean off as much crap as I can to get even more free space. Then I defrag with those options on(the top 4 check boxes in the list.) But that's only for the system drive. For my drives in docking stations the only opt I ever use is the Fill Gaps option.

Works for me but eveyone has slightly different usage patterns and space requirements.

Any ideas on why Puran Defrag will not restart or shutdown my computer anymore?

Are you using Boot Scan?

May be a bug in build. Can you use previous version? If not email Puran as they are responsive in time.

Does Puran Defrag 7.3 Free work with Windows 7 Defrag disabled ?
I normally set the Disk Defragmenter Task Schedule to DISABLED, and leave the Windows Disk Defragmenter defragsvc set to DISABLED. Will Puran Free be able to safely and fully operate under these conditions, or should I change defragsvc to MANUAL. I occasionally create a Macrium FULL image...
