During defragmentation ultradefrag puts the files (or chunks) which are at the wrong place temporarily at the end of the drive.
They should be closer to the beginning to minimize access time.
Example:
Drive is 25% full, start putting the "temp" data at 30%, or at +32 GB if the drive is above 640 GB. The only exception would be total oversized files, like virtual hard disks or encryption containers tend to be - such biggies are difficult to defrag...
