Description: SpaceSniffer is a freeware portable tool application that lets you understand how folders and files are structured on your disks. By using a Treemap visualization layout, you have immediate perception of where big folders and files are placed on your devices. Treemap concept was invented by Prof. Ben Shneiderman, who kindly permitted the use of his concept into this tool.
Start a scan process and see the overall situation. Bigger are the elements on the view, bigger are folders and files on your disk. You need more detail on a big folder? Just single click on it. The selected element will be detailed with its content.
Need more and more detail? Keep selecting elements and they'll discover their secrets to you. Need a larger view of a small folder? Then double click on it, and it'll zoom to the full extent of the view....

Description: MyDefrag is a disk defragmenter and optimizer (a maintenance utility to make your harddisk faster) for Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, 2008, and for X64. It is freeware, no time limit, fully functional, no advertisements.

Included are a set of easy to use scripts for endusers, a scripting engine for demanding users, a screensaver, and a combined Windows plus commandline version that can be scheduled by the Windows task scheduler or for use from administrator scripts.
MyDefrag is extremely solid because it is based on the standard defragmentation API by Microsoft, a system library that is included in Windows 2000, 2003, XP, Vista, and 2008. Most defragmenters are based on this API, including the free defragmenter that comes with Windows and many commercial defragmenters. Basically all MyDefrag does is send "move this file to that location" commands to the API. The API is part of the operating system and can safely move almost any file on the disk, without risk and while the computer is in full use

Hard disks are by far the slowest component in your computer. CPU and memory work much faster than hard disks because they do not have moving parts. Therefore fragmented disks often become a bottleneck of the system performance.
Besides causing slowdowns, fragmentation makes the hard drive disk heads move frequently when reading files which leads to freeze-ups and system crashes. It is important to keep your disks defragmented and optimized as much as possible.

JDN Reserve v2.2 Compatible with: Win9x/NT4/ME/Win2k/XP Filename: reserve.zip Size: 490 kb Author: JDN Toronto More Details & Downloads
Description: JDN Reserve is freeware for Windows that enables you to clean your drives in minutes instead of hours. It doesn't actually do any cleaning. It just enables you to do it more quickly. JDN Reserve only takes a second to run and you can always delete any or all of the reserved files quickly and without any problems. No matter whether you want to create one gig or 1,000 gigs, now you can do it in just a split-second.
What does it mean to reserve space and why is that a useful thing to do? With the recent dramatic rise in identity theft, people are becoming aware of a serious Windows security problem. Here is the problem in a nutshell:
When you delete a file, it is not really deleted. Its name is removed from the directory but its data lingers on your drive. So people can retrieve the data and that is one of your greatest vulnerablities. When you delete data, it becomes vulnerable.
People now use wiping or scrubbing utilities to ensure all deleted files are fully erased. But there is a problem with those utilities. They take hours to run and that discourages people from cleaning as often as they should. But there is an answer.
Suppose you have a 60 gig drive and 50 gigs are unused. It will take several hours to wipe those 50 gigs. But once they have been wiped, why waste hours and hours wiping them again and again? That is a colossal waste of time. Clean the drive once and then reserve most of the clean 50 gigs, leaving free only what you need in the near future. From then on, when you clean the drive, you will only have to clean a tiny area and it will only take a few minutes instead of a few hours. That is what JDN Reserve is all about.
JDN Reserve never takes more than a second to run because it doesn't actually write files. It just creates them so that the space cannot be used for anything else. And you can always delete any or all of the reserved files or reserve more space, depending on your needs.
JDN Reserve may also have some application in reducing disk defragmentation.
