Software that will defragment your iso

Asked By 100 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

I recently downloaded an ISO file (legally) but in not in a single day (I have a slow connection). I used Free Download Manager to download the 600 MB ISO file over 4 days. After running the file using a free utility I noticed that it is quite sluggish regarding access time.

One technical support staff told me defragmenting the ISO file will remedy the slow access time.

Can anyone tell if there is a software that will Lay you defragment your ISO file?

Thank you.

Defragmenting will surely increase performance. The access time will be much better than before.

There is software called winContig, which can be used to defragment ISO files. You can download it here:

I would recommend you to upgrade your RAM and possibly your processor to get better performance out of your system, without using any defragmenting tools.

Defragmentation is a process of reducing the amount of fragmented files by organizing the contents of the mass storage device. In able to defrag a file there is basically one good procedure that you do not need to install any other third party software. Copying one file to a different drive or external device would defragment one specific file automatically, provided that there is enough free space from that storage device.

Here are the steps that you could follow:

Step 1: Copy your large file to a different drive partition or a USB, this way those little chunks of the file would be copied to a different drive as a one whole chunk of the file.

Step 2: Defrag your drive using the built in defragmentation application on your computer. This is for preparing your drive to have a free space large enough to accommodate the large file in one piece rather that fragmented to several smaller chunks.

Step 3: Copy the large file back again to its original location.
