    Lightbulb Little help to deal with lags - defrag assets using Contig

    What is "Contig"?
    Contig is designed to defragment individual files and does not attempt to move files to the beginning of the partition. Contig has advantages over the Windows built in defragementor tool in that it can target individual files, individual directories, and subsets of the file system using wildcards.
    Read More on Wikipedia


    I can't gave you guarantee that this solution help you to deal with lags : )


    Short, quick tutorial, how to use it to defragment Rift .pak files:

    1. Download "Contig" - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/s.../bb897428.aspx (Press "Download Contig" on the right side)
    2. Unzip archive and move "contig.exe" to "C:/Windows/System32/"
    3a. Open Notepad or other text editor and paste code placed below:
    Code:
    REGEDIT4
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\contig]
    @="Defrag Folder with Contig"
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\contig\command]
    @="cmd.exe /k contig.exe \"%L\\*.*\" -v -s"
    and save as "contig.reg"
    3b. Otherwise you can download "contig.reg" file prepared by me from http://simekdesign.eu/contig.reg
    4. Double click on this file and press "Yes" to add keys to registry
    5. Navigate to Rift game folder on you disk, right click on "assets" folder and select "Defrag Folder with Contig"
    6. Wait until defrag process end then close the command line window, it's done

    I suggest to preform defragmentation after each update.


    If you want to delete "Defrag Folder with Contig" from the context menu you can download "contig_delet.reg" file from my server (http://simekdesign.eu/contig_delete.reg) or create reg file with following content:
    Code:
    REGEDIT4
    
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\contig]
    
    [-HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Directory\shell\contig\command]
    If you get any problems fell free to ask a question.

    Enjoy!

    My apologies, I saw someone taken in with something similar before.

    The 1 post user throwing up a reg hack was a red flag for me.

    False alert, sorry all.

    Here is the page that the D/l comes from. It is legit.

    I wouldnt suggest trusting his own personal version he has posted below that, but the original is the original.

    You can always ignore anyone that gets on your nerves. Click on the person's name in the thread, view their profile, and there will be an ignore button under their avatar.

    @aviansun

    You do realise that sysinternals is now owned and their software distributed by Microsoft ?

    No, so you just thought you'd jump on the OP without checking. Maybe you should get out of that Southern Californian sun and chill out a little.

    @simek
    Personally I prefer Diskeeper, just letting it run in the background 24x7 and leaving it to intelligently defrag based on my PC usage. However, it isn't free but then again it is managaging around 6TB of hard drives.
    I haven't failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work.

    I do think AvianSun might of jumped the gun abit early but come on guys.

    The first post is a link with downloads that may or might not have a virus or key logger and just before the 2nd beta event not saying he is trying to scam but come on who don`t think its just abit fishy.

    That don`t change the fact it seems abit fishy that just before the 2nd beta some one posts links to downloads in there first post.

    I know about defrag but that still don`t change the fact that this was a massive red flag to me.

    or you could use IObit's free Game Booster. It shuts down unnecessary processes to free up memory while you game, and it has a built in defrag tool for your game directories. google it.
