Wizcode Defragment MobileIs your mobile device becoming more sluggish as you install more applications and store more data on your storage cards? Does it take forever to start up and run programs? Your invisible enemy is called "file system fragmentation". It is the number one cause for slow file system performance and the major rival of successful data recovery.

Enter Wizcode Defragment Mobile - the world's most efficient and powerful Windows Mobile storage card defragmenter and file system optimizer now featuring Wizcode's FlashBoost® flash memory optimization technology and Wizcode's DirBoost® folder sorting.

Use Wizcode Defragment to:

  • Keep your storage card data free of fragmentation
  • Increase the performance and reliability of your storage cards
  • Optimize your file system appication-wide
  • Reclaim unused RAM from applications and increase free memory

Defragment Mobile - easy to useExtremely easy to use

The powerful, high performance defragmenter will analyze your storage cards and will remove file system fragmentation with a few clicks of your styles. Install the defragmenter, select the storage devices to defragment and wait for the the defragmenter to do its job.

Defragment Mobile - very fast and efficientExceptionally efficient defragmentation

Being the industry leader in Windows Mobile defragmentation software Wizcode's Defragment Mobile has the world’s fastest and most reliable defragmenting engine. It has been designed specifically to work on flash media and incorporates features to speed up the defragmentation process like the built in caches and a single pass defragmenting algorithm.

Defragment Mobile - specially designed for storage cardsOptimize storage card performance

Wizcode Defragment Mobile doesn’t just use simple defragmentation. It also streamlines your file system, reorders directory entries alphabetcially (DirBoost®) and performs specific storage card optimizations like the flash media block alignment FlashBoost® feature, enabling your mobile device to run at top speed with the most stability.

Defragment Mobile - safe and reliable with built-in error checkingData safety and reliability guaranteed

Wizcode Defragment Mobile uses industry standard code to move data and does not damage any files on your storage card. Each fragmented file chain is first copied to a new place and only then the folder entries are updated and the old chain is discared ensuring 100% safe fragmentation. Besides, Defragment Mobile contains Wizcode's proprietary ScanDisk disk error checking intergated code that runs before the defragmenter and guarantees the file system is healthy and therefore safe to defragment. Unlike other "automated" defragmenters, Wizcode Defragment does not constantly perform analysis and defragment, which shortens the life of your flash cards.

Defragment Mobile - automatic or schedule defragmentationScheduled defragmentation on device reboot

Defragment Mobile can be configured to automatically run and defragment all installed storage devices when the device is rebooted before other applications are loaded. In addition, the application supports command line parameters allowing scheduling a defragmentation with scripts or 3rd party tools.

Defragment Mobile - Defragment RAM, reclaim memory, increase RAMRAM defragment feature

Although this feature is not diretcly related to file system fragmentation it is very useful especially on a mobile device because it reclaims unused and fragmented RAM memory from applications not using it and increase the RAM available to the system as a whole. This feature is so frequently used by our customers that we've added single click RAM defragmentation icon in the programs files folder that will automatically defragment RAM memory when the icon is clicked.




Technical information

Fragmentation refers to the tendency of files, stored in the FAT file system, to become broken into pieces that can end up in very different places within a storage card volume. Fragmentation occurs naturally with time when a storage card is used frequently - creating, deleting, and modifying files. This process is entirely invisible to users.

Blazingly fast, supporting all three FAT formats (FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32), and with the new FlashBoost® feature specifically designed for flash memory optimization, the defragmenter will rearrange the files on your storage card like children's tile puzzles until all files and folders become contiguous, and folder contents become alphabetically sorted for maximum performance.

A fragmented file system leads to performance degradation. Instead of a file being in one continuous "chunk" on the card, it is split into many pieces which can be located anywhere on the card. By doing this, additional positioning tasks are introduced into what should be a sequential reading operation, often greatly reducing speed, especially on micro drives but also affecting flash memory because of read-ahead and FAT caching, and the way information is physically stored on a storage card. Flash memory is organized and accessed in blocks and the performance penalty for accessing sequential data stored in two different blocks is substantial.

There are two principle reasons for improving when files are stored in contiguous cluster chains. One is to improve the speed with which a file is stored to or retrieved from a storage card. The second reason is to reduce the possibility of data loss. If the files are kept together in adjacent clusters, the chances of recovering them, even with third-party recovery tools, increase measurably.

Without Wizcode Defragment Mobile on your mobile device file system fragmentation will steadily bring down system performance and generate fragmentation related problems such as slowdowns, freezes, crashes and more.

Defragmenting a very fragmented storage card will often result in tangible improvements in the "feel" of the disk. To avoid excessive fragmentation, defragment on a regular basis; usually once every week or two is sufficient.

Restrictions

  • Trial version limitation - the trial version of the product is not feature limited. After the 30 day evaluation period expires it will require a license key to continue working.
  • It is recommended to install Wizcode Defragment Mobile in RAM, not on a storage card. Although the defragmenter will still work fine when installed on a storage card it won't be able to gain exclusive access to the card and therefore deny access of 3rd party apps to the file system while defragmenting.
