Defrag your boot volume with bootable DVD in few easy steps
The boot volume of your Mac system is the volume, from which the system starts up. This volume contains all the Mac OS X installed files and other supported files needed to run the system. With usage over months, the boot volume becomes fragmented by storing various .plist files in the location “Macintosh HD->Library->Preferences folders”, log entries and other page-files. These files make the booting process slower and the need arises to defrag boot drive.
However, the problem is that while booting from the boot volume, the operating system files are in an active state. The active files can not be defragged and any forceful defragment operation may result in lost/inaccessibility of data following corruption. Hence, Stellar Drive Defrag utility provides an innovative option to create a bootable DVD, from which you can boot your system and defrag any Mac volume, including the boot volume.
