Something funny happened that has me worried: I did a defrag and (all?) my MTF files seem to have disappeared (maybe?)…..

My standard pre-defrag cleaner is CCLeaner and my standard defragger is/was Piriform's Defraggler. Since I had such good results with Auslogics Disk Defragger after trying it out, I wanted to do a comparison test. I did the usual cleaning with CC and a couple of others I used to use. All the settings on all the apps were as always (I went back and checked that). I Defragged a few times with Defraggler to get rid of all the fragments, and my MTF files, which usually take up a lot of space, seem to have disappeared! Three, and then later only two, MTF squares remained, but if you mouseover those squares, it says they contain no files. Then I analyzed for defrag with Auslogics. It shows a goodly amount of MTF files (although a lot fewer than before)! Why aren't these files showing up on Defraggler? And why are they so much fewer than before? All this applies to my C: disk, which is NTSC (I used to have 2KPRO). I thought the MTF files were very important, so this has me worried…..

Additional info:

1. I have XP Pro SP2.

2. My OE6 asked if I would like to compact. Since I hadn't done it in a long time, and the computer has asked me a few times, I figured it was time to do it. So it did it. That always puts a HUGE amount of MB's in the Recycle Bin, so I cleared it. That's what prompted me to do a serious defrag.

3. So then I did the general cleanups and then the defrags.

What's the story here..? Confused

Thanks for any help!

Janet

PS In the Auslogics analysis, the MTF files are no longer together–they always used to be…

This exact thing also happened to me long ago, on my xp home sp3 machine. I was using diskeeper pro and the usually long MTF section suddenly dissappeared. As far as I can tell, nothing bad has come out from it. But yes, it would be nice to know why this happens.
