Powerful Windows Mobile storage card defragmenter that will rearrange the files on your storage card like children's tile puzzles until all files and folders become contiguous


Pocket Mechanic Professional - Defragment storage cardsFragmentation 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 when a storage card is used frequently, creating, deleting, and modifying files. This process is entirely invisible to users.

A fragmented file system leads to performance degradation. Instead of a file being in one continuous "chunk" on the disk, it is split into many pieces, which can be located anywhere on the disk. Doing this introduces additional positioning tasks into what should be a sequential reading operation, often greatly reducing speed especially on micro drives but also affecting flash memory because of the way the OS organizes read-ahead cache and FAT cache.

There are two principle reasons for improving when files are stored in contiguous cluster chains. One 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. The second is to improve the speed with which a file is stored to or retrieved from a storage card.

Pocket Mechanic Professional is loaded with the most powerful defragmenter for the Windows Mobile platform. Blazingly fast and supporting all three FAT formats (FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32) the defragmenter will rearrange the files on your storage card like children's tile puzzles until all files and folders become contiguous. The defragmenter supports various options and modes and is even able to defragment individual files.

Defragmenting the 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.
