The doubt which i currently have is regarding the functioning of defragmenting software. i.e. when you defragment a disk. does a defragmenter defragment only files or also folders.
e.g. lets say i have a directory "folder\"
in it are some 200 files. if i run the defragmenter then each of the 200 files become contiguous. but if the 1st file is located at one end of the hard disk and the 2nd on an aother end, then defragmenting has not offered me any significant benifit.(lets assume that i had to access every file in the folder, e.g. during the time of application startup). so i wanted to know if the defragmenter, along with defragmenting the files, also brings the files in a folder together in a contiguous arrangement(i.e. defragments the folders as well).
i have the following 2 defragmenters in mind
-Auslogics Disk Defrag.
if none of these perform the required function, then suggestions of software that can acheive directory defrag are requestd.
