Diskeeper Corporation Europe Identifies Vitality of System

Software company Diskeeper Corporation Europe states that it is vitally important to defragment MFT and paging files.
On an extremely busy server where hundreds of files are being created every day the Master File Table can become heavily fragmented and the native Windows defrag tool, despite interoperating with the file system and APIs, doesn’t actually support defragmentation of the MFT, the Paging File, FAT directories or files open for exclusive use - for example, Windows registry.

Every file in an NTFS's volume has an entry in NT's Master File Table. The MFT includes references to all folders and files stored on the NTFS partitions. MFT is similar to a FAT table in a FAT file system. When you convert your file system from FAT to NTFS, MFT is created and placed somewhere in the middle of the partition, not at the beginning like when you perform a fresh format. This causes slower access to the MFT and higher fragmentation of other files.
It is therefore important to perform defragmentation on such files in order to speed up system performance; however it is only safe to do so using boot-time defragmentation. Most online methods bypass the defragmentation APIs within NTFS file systems which Microsoft has provided for safe defragmentation, and can result in loss of data, data corruption, system crashes or even loss of entire volumes.
A third-party defragmentation tool is undeniably useful to handle such tasks. Diskeeper 2007 is a new generation defragmentation that can work with MFT and paging files and uses Microsoft’s approved boot-time method along with FragShield™ technology, an exclusive feature that configures disk allocation to prevent these critical system areas from becoming fragmented.
