WinContig is an easy-to-use standalone defragmenter program that does not create any additional folders on the computer and does not make entries in the Windows registry. Its purpose is to quickly defragment files without having to defragment the entire disk. In addition, WinContig allows you to group files in profiles, and also supports optional command-line parameters with which you can control the behavior of the program.--

Additional information:

WinContig is a standalone application that does not require any installation or additional DLL libraries. You just need to unpack the contents of the distribution ZIP archive to any folder on the disk - and the program is ready for use.
WinContig is distributed as a freeware product for both personal and commercial use.

Frequently asked questions about WinContig:

Answers to questions frequently asked by WinContig users.
Q. Is it safe to use WinContig?
O. Defragmentation and analysis are based on the library functions of the interface in the OS kernel mode. Thus, defragmentation is safe and does not carry the risk of data loss.
Q. Is it possible to run WinContig from a batch file or on a schedule?
A. WinContig understands command-line keys that allow you to control the behavior of the program. Thanks to this, WinContig can be called from batch files or use the Windows Scheduler to run the program on a schedule.
Q. Does WinContig use the SysInternals Contig utility when performing analysis/defragmentation?
A. No way. WinContig is not a graphical shell for the Sysinternals Contig utility, nor is the Contig utility built into WinContig.
B. WinContig is a freeware program. Can I use WinContig at work?
A. Of course. The WinContig program is free for both personal and commercial use.
Q. What is the difference between fast (Quick) and efficient (Smart) defragmentation?
A. WinContig supports two different defragmentation methods. When choosing the fast method, WinContig looks for the first available free area of sufficient volume on the disk to defragment the file and uses it. This method of defragmentation is suitable for those who regularly defragment disks with a regular Windows tool. When choosing an effective method, WinContig tries to find a free area on the disk, the volume of which best corresponds to the size of the defragmented file. If the free area, which is large enough to write a fully defragmented file, cannot be detected, WinContig tries to reduce the number of fragments of such a file.
Q. I can't choose any other interface language other than Italian. Why?
A. You probably broke the folder structure when unpacking files from the archive . Check if there is a WContig in the folder where you extracted the, Lang subfolder. If you don't have such a folder, create it, move all files with the .lng extension to it, delete the WinContig.ini file (if there is one) and run WinContig.
