    A common belief is that Novell NetWare volumes do not become fragmented and that defragmentation is not important. This is simply not true. There are many good reasons to defragment volumes. For example: after adding a new volume segment to a volume, the new segment contains no user data. By defragmenting the volume, data is redistributed evenly across all volume segments. System administrators can now measure the performance affects that fragmentation causes.

    Key Features:

    • Complete volume optimization
    • Defragments all NetWare volume data areas
    • Redistribute data across a volume after a new segment is added

    • Supports execution from scripts
