I am lately trying to defrag my drives and I tried using several defrag programs. The C drive is always the most fragmented and I noticed several catalog.wci files keep appearing in the fragmentation list, even after I have just defragmented the system. Also the windows defrag program always shows a big fragmented file on the C drive, that keeps appearing no matter what.
I've used for defragging Auslogics disk defrag and lately the Piriform Defraggler, which seem to be doing a quick good job. I also tried Mydefrag 4.1.1., which took a long time and should do a more intensive defrag. However, it seemed to only mess up with the whole drives, as checking their looks afterwards with the windows defrag they were all much more fragmented.
What should I use to do a good defrag and get rid of the recurring catalog.wci files? What's the use of that folder, maybe I could just move or delete it? I read it may be an indexing service, but I don't know how that is good or necessary for my system. Thanks in advance!
