A hard disk is major part of PC if your HDD is not working properly it means you can’t run computer. The health of this physical is definitely matters because it’ll create difficulties if it’s facing bad sectors. These bad’s are coming from multiple ways e.g. creating partitions in wrong way, install OS again and again, unplug and plug in everyday, do not perform fragment, duplicate data copying and more. WinContig is superb tool that can do data fragmentation of any file in hard disk to increase it’s health.
Previously people use tools to perform this operation but majority tools will only defragment whole HDD / SSD. This is lengthy and time taking process that will need hours and in some cases the procedure covers whole days. The problematic thing is that you can’t do work after starting fragmentation. Win Contig is small tool that doesn’t need any installation and it works smartly by doing defragment of individual files.
Moreover, this’ll give speed up in startup and shutdown, faster data copying, get more free space, rearrange files in clusters and increase in HDD health. As you can see the red color shows fragmented and green is showing not fragmented status in above screenshot. Furthermore, it will reward more free space especially if you start fragmenting OS drive.
The basic purpose of program is to target only files and folders rather than whole HDD. This will be a good option for those who are looking to optimize disk drive without spending hours. Although, it’s smart tool with just 1 MB of file size but the functions are out of limits.
