Features of O&O Defrag Linux V1.0

  • Analysis/defragmentation of EXT2 and EXT3 drive partitions, the standard Linux file systems

  • Analysis/defragmentation of individual files 

  • Analysis/defragmentation of individual partitions

  • Secure defragmentation with the unique "Security Mode". This enables you to repair an inconsistent file system when O&O Defrag Linux has been abnormally ended (e.g. by a power cut).

  • Various defragmentation methods:

    • Normal defragmentation

    • SPACE - defragmentation

  • The static version of O&O Defrag Linux can be started from a floppy disk (1,44 MB). In this way it is possible to optimize the root partition of the system with the help of a a start floppy or CD in combination with O&O Defrag Linux.

Notes for beta testers

The second run of the analysis phase in the beta version begins after defragmentation/SPACE defragmentation is completed. This is simply to check that O&O Defrag Linux is running correctly and to deliver statistics that are compiled after, and independently of, the defragmentation process. This significantly lengthens the total duration of defragmentation and should be taken into account when considering length of time taken. This analysis phase can be stopped at any time and will not be included in the released version. 
We request that beta testers send us a screenshot of the statistics compiled before and after the (SPACE) defragementation. 

Known issues

The disk space needed for the SPACE defrag method increases proportionally with the number of available clusters and can be several gigabytes on a 4 terabyte server. This disk space issue will be resolved for the next beta version.
