Is 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.
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.
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.
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.
