Optimization of the Boot Files



Normal file fragmentation scatters the pieces of a file all over your hard disk. This invariably also affects the files that load at boot time. You can defragment the files that load at system startup to enable faster loading.

Navigate to:
HLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Dfrg\BootOptimizeFunction

A setting called Enable under this key need to be set to Y (i.e. Yes). The setting will defragment the boot files, and it might relocate startup files into contiguous clusters on the volume, reducing the movement of the disk head when reading the volume.

With the setting at Y, boot file optimization occurs automatically if the system is idle for 10 minutes.

NOTE: A Reboot is required for the change to take effect

About This Blog

The Windows Registry is a database which stores settings and options for Microsoft Windows operating systems. It contains normally information and settings for hardware, operating system software, most non-operating system software, and per-user settings. Registry is used to optimize the security, enhance the functionality, modify the functioning of any software OR settings and many more.

In this blog I have tried to collect all the tweaks and hacks available on various website. I have tested many of these hacks before posting but still I would suggest you to take backup of your registry before trying any of these tweaks and if anything goes wrong while trying these hacks I or this blog will not be held responsible.
