WinContig Review

Sven Sorensen
A customizable defragger which can defrag specific files
A review of WinContig by Sven Sørensen

Some of the most common bottlenecks when you have a traditional hard drive installed are caused by fragmentation of your filesystem. Hard drive defragmenters generally help improve the speed of your system and WinContig is a program which does exactly that.

Without having to actually install WinContig (it's a portable application), you can defragment your hard drive or specific areas of it like directories. For example, you can only choose to defragment C:\Windows for faster operation of Windows.

Unlike the built-in Windows defrag tool, WinContig can help specify which directories need to be defragmented.

If you're looking for a useful defragger which saves time by only targeting certain areas of your filesystem, then WinContig is definitely a good free candidate which can work wonders (compared to long processes by Windows' own tool.)

Note: Defragmenting files and folders on SSDs (solid state drives) is generally not recommended.

Compability and license

WinContig is licensed as freeware for the Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from hard drive defrag software without restrictions. WinContig is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).
