UltraDefrag 4.2.0 shows an incorrect MFT size in some of my partitions.
For example: 197.83 Mb, 9.99 Gb, 62.50 Gb and 49.65 Gb.
For the same partitions, Windows Disk Defragmenter reports respectively: 105
MB, 13 MB, 80 KB and 336 KB.
The MFT sizes calculated by Windows seems much more consistent with the
(I never used UltraDefrag before, so I don't know if older versions behave
On my Win7 x64 the difference to Windows defrag is always 200MB, which UD is
(I use UltraDefrag with Windows XP Professional SP2, and the 4 partitions use
Are you saying that it is normal to see a different size? 200MB difference is
a fair amount.....
Other tools are only reporting the used MFT size, where UD reports the total
On a freshly installed WinXP pro SP3 the used MFT size is 20MB, where the
total MFT size is 2.5GB.
Dimitri is currently working on making this more obvious for the user.
I have read some docs, and found that the MFT size reported by UD is the size
of what Microsoft calls "MFT Zone", that is well explained here: http://suppo
So that value is neither the used size nor the total size: it is the reserved
Now that I know this, I prefer the way UD display that reserved size, as
Windows Disk Defragmenter display that zone as empty, but doesn't move files
I would only write "MFT reserved" in the box, instead of only "MFT".
