I am using O&O Defrag to defragment the files on my computer (Windows, NTFS file system).
Is it possible to specify that particular folders (and the files/folders within them) be placed in the beginning of a drive? This was possible with the very first version of the Norton defragmentation program (back in the DOS days - many, many years ago).
Placing folders/files in the beginning of the hard disk that are known to be accessed often presumably greatly improves seek times and thus the performance of the computer.
Place the two folders "C:\WINDOWS\system32" and "C:\data\myConstantlyUsedReadOnlyDatabaseFiles" in the beginning of the disk.
I am aware that O&O Defrag can sort after access/modification time ("COMPLETE/Access" and "COMPLETE/Modified"), but this does in no way offer the level of control that is needed.
If this is not possible in O&O Defrag: do you know of another defragmentation program that offers this level of control?
