Stellar Data Recovery has released Stellar Drive Defrag, a free edition of its drive defragmenting software designed to optimize Mac hard drives and volumes.
The software defragments large files, including all associated metadata. It also performs full defragmentation of the entire volume or drive. Stellar Drive Defrag is compatible with Mac OS X 10.5 and higher.
Thes free edition is capable of optimizing free space in a hard drive into contiguous memory space. Temperature fluctuations during defragmentation can be monitored; the tool is also equipped with a “color legend” that allows color customization for memory blocks under similar categories.
In order to defragment the boot volume, the application offers to make a bootable DVD. You can boot the Mac system from this bootable DVD and can perform all the defragmentation operations directly on the boot volume.
