PowerShell disk defragmenter

Kuma\'s PowerPack to defrag your hard disk

Kuma's PowerPack to defrag your hard disk

Another PowerPack challenge spotlight: the second contestant is Kuma with his Volumes With XP Support powerpack. The PowerPack takes the Volumes pack which we had in the library for ages and makes it work for Windows XP.

The pack gives you a list of hard disk volumes on your computer and allows you to defrag them either with the defrag UI showing up on the screen or without it.

Kuma is actually running the defragmentation process in a pretty cool way. He is using the start-process cmdlet from the PowerShell Community Extensions library – so defrag is being started asynchronously and thus is not locking your PowerGUI console.

You can download Kuma’s powerpack here. And you have about two more weeks to get you chance to become of of the first round winners. 😉

    I think it would be cool to see the results of a frag analysis in here as well.

    Hal, could you post it (and any other feedback) on the powerpack’s page so Kuma can see and respond: http://www.powergui.org/entry.jspa?externalID=1991&categoryID=296
