MD5: e1973472723e4aa7920a6fd29f112761

Installs To: %WINDIR%\UltraDefrag
Shortcut: Utilities
Last Updated: 20101121
Notes: In previous versions, DriverPacks BASE would delete entries that were necessary for this addon, but I don't believe that will be a problem anymore since I changed the filenames. If you have issues, however, try installing this particular addon after you have already run BASE.

Language: English; I removed all other language packs.
Description: UltraDefrag is an open source disk defragmenter for Windows NT 4.0 and later operating systems. It makes use of the same defragmenting API used by many other windows defrag utilities, both open and closed source. However, UltraDefrag has many features that makes it unique. Firstly it has a kernel mode driver that does most of the work, secondly is the ability to run the application at boot up time in a manner similar to chkdsk. This allows for faster defragmentation time and the ability to defragment all files including system files. It can also defrag single file or multiple directory and can generate a list of all fragmented files. The program is available for both 32bit and 64bit version of Windows running on both AMD and Intel based processor.
Features:
  • Defragmentation algorithm was completely rewritten to be more effective. Click <Here> to know more about the algorithm.
  • GUI configuration utility to allow UD to be configured using a graphical window.
  • Very fast defragmentation, the work is done via a kernel mode driver which has an optimal defragging algorithm.
  • Single file or directory defragmentation ability. Select any file or folder in Explorer and choose the appropriate context menu item to defragment them.
  • Very small engine written in pure C.
  • PortableDefrag can be installed on demand which can be carried around in USB storage devices and used without any installation.
  • Nice graphical interface - compact and functional.
  • Safety, because the file moving is accomplished with Microsoft's own Defrag API.
  • Ability to generate html reports of fragmentation status.
  • Ability to include/exclude files based on simple filters.
  • Free: Distributed with full source code under the GNU General Public License.

Updated to latest version. I implemented a couple of bugfixes as well that should be present in the official release of 4.4 when it comes out.

dziubek,

The NSIS installer for version 5.0 has many options for customizing a silent install:
Silent Installation

UltraDefrag can be installed in silent mode by adding the /S switch to the installer's command line at the command prompt. In this case no dialogs will be shown and the program will be installed to the hard drive completely with all the features enabled.

The following additional command line switches are supported:

/LANG
Select the language to be installed. For example, use /LANG="German" to install the German language pack.
Valid language names can be found at the Translation Wiki
/FULL=1
Install the full edition, which includes all components and icons.
/MICRO=1
Install the micro edition, which includes only the core components and the shell extension.
/ICONS=(0|1)
Install or remove all shortcut icons. Example: /ICONS=0 removes all icons.
/BOOT=(0|1)
Install or remove the boot components. Example: /BOOT=1 installs the boot components.
/CONSOLE=(0|1)
Install or remove the console components. Example: /CONSOLE=1 installs the console components.
/GUI=(0|1)
Install or remove the GUI components. Example: /GUI=1 installs the GUI components.
/HELP=(0|1)
Install or remove the documentation. Example: /HELP=0 removes the documentation.
/SHELLEXTENSION=(0|1)
Install or remove the Explorer context menu handler. Example: /SHELLEXTENSION=0 removes the Explorer context menu handler.
Installing the context menu handler forces the console interface it depends on to be installed.
/DISABLE_USAGE_TRACKING=(0|1)
Enable or disable web based usage tracking. Example: /DISABLE_USAGE_TRACKING=1 disables usage tracking.
/STARTMENUICON=(0|1)
Install or remove the start menu icon. Example: /STARTMENUICON=1 installs the start menu icon.
Installing the start menu icon forces the GUI interface it depends on to be installed.
/DESKTOPICON=(0|1)
Install or remove the desktop icon. Example: /DESKTOPICON=0 removes the desktop icon.
Installing the desktop icon forces the GUI interface it depends on to be installed.
/QUICKLAUNCHICON=(0|1)
Install or remove the quick launch icon. Example: /QUICKLAUNCHICON=1 installs the quick launch icon.
Installing the quick launch icon forces the GUI interface it depends on to be installed.
/DISABLE_USAGE_TRACKING=(0|1)
Enable or disable tracking the usage of UltraDefrag. Example: /DISABLE_USAGE_TRACKING=1 disables usage tracking.
Usage tracking is done by accessing a simple text file on the UltraDefrag home page.
Maybe give it a try yourself? or perhaps provide the type of configuration you like?
