How about Defraging your registry?


Recommended Posts


If you use Registry Mechanic

you have an option to Defragg your registry!


Why do you defrag your HDD then? Defraging registry is a same thing.

but instead of Defraging files and folders, you Defrag your registry database.


The registry in your computer is like nerves in a human body.

they have to be connected with a human brain if you are going to recognize something.


While files and folders is like the Humans muscle.

if you train,your "proteins" is producing a muscle mass that is getting more compact the more you train.

getting you stronger.


The same way as a hard drive is defraging your files and folders!

files is getting compact and there will be more easy for your computer to handle stuff.

its getting in to a mass. l

Yes but we are talking about SSD's Synbios.

That's the point, so why defrag the registry? And even if we would talk about HDDS: no need to defrag, believe me, you won't recognize any speed changes. These are tuning tips from yesterday, but you still can read about it at these so-called professional magazins.

This is totally my opinion and not based on any facts.


I think the registry defrag tools do more than just defragment the actual registry files on the disk. It seems that they work with the actual structure of the data within the registry files, actually reducing the file size (some claim to reorder the data to make the queries faster - like compact & repair for access). I don't think it will show any true performance gains on todays hardware.


SSDs can be defragmented. You wont gain any true performance, and you will be wasting the limited number of writes your SSD has, but defrag programs will run on them.

Yes a good program like Quicksys RegDefrag does more of compacting than defragmenting the registry, but "defrag" sort of works better in a product name I suppose. It is also a safe method in contrast to the couple of dozen registry "fixers" with various bugs that are out there, but in a typical situation it might not be able to make the registry more than 10-20% smaller which won't register in practical performance with a modern SSD drive.
