Stellar Drive Defrag 2.0.0 | Mac Os X | 12 MB
Stellar disk defrag is a wonderful Mac defrag software to help you systematize the fragmented data and free space in the Mac volumes. The software gathers the fragmented data of a file and stores together into a single chunk of memory, which makes the data access speed faster.
Stellar Drive Defrag has dedicated algorithms to logically group all scattered pieces of large data files present on your Mac hard drive and store them in contiguous segments on the drive. Some salient features of the software are illustrated below:
Defrag Mac Files
Collects logically related pieces of scattered data on your drive and allocates them neighboring or nearby locations to reduce fragmentation and make data access easier and smoother. You can either defrag a single file or perform defragmentation of multiple files simultaneously.
Organizes Free Space
Uses an efficient algorithm to examine portions of free space available on your hard drive and keep them at a single place to avoid fragmentation. This would in fact reduce the disk head movement and lead to a significant increase of your performance.
This defrag software accurately determines the space allocation on your hard drive and then smoothly defrags everything present on the drive, including files, metadata, and unused space. The software categorizes the disk space into various attributes, such as Allocation, Overflow, Catalog, Attribute, Fragmented, Data, and Unused Space.
The Mac Defrag software defrags all metadata files present in your system, including catalog, allocation, extent overflow, and attribute files. Metadata defragmentation paves the way for a much faster access to the file information.
The software accomplishes quick defragmentation by allowing you to defrag all fragmented files in your Mac volume. This eliminates the need for full defragmentation of the Mac hard drive or volume.
Enables you to create a bootable Mac DVD, which can be effectively used to boot your Mac machine and perform defragmentation of the boot volume of your system. If you are using 'Lion', you need to download the bootable image ('.dmg' file) and then burn it to a DVD to defrag the Lion bootable partition.
Block-Level Representation of Hard Drive Volumes
The software displays the entire hard drive as a group of individual blocks in layout view. These blocks are colored by examining the extent of information of the associated drive area and usually represent three types of files, i.e. ‘fragmented files’, ‘normal files’, and ‘free space’. You can choose the color of blocks according to your preferences. You can also view the current temperature of your hard drive in the left pane.
Option to View Path of File in a Block
The software smartly displays the path of a file when you place the mouse cursor over a specific memory block. If you click on a particular block, the file occupying that block will be shown as highlighted in the 'Files' view. This feature enables you to quickly identify and trace all fragmented files on your hard drive.
Option to Send Email Notifications
The software allows sending email notifications after completion of the defragmentation task. You can select 'Preferences' on the 'StellarDriveDefrag' menu and specify the email ids to receive task completion notifications.Download
