The Perfectdisk help files are not enlightening me. If I select "Let PerfectDisk manage" under Advanced Options will it optimise the prefetch/layout.ini files or do I need to select "Let PerfectDisk manage all the layout.ini files"?
Which setting is recommended?
"Let PerfectDisk manage. - if selected, PerfectDisk will optimize the location of the files needed to start your computer. This will decrease the time necessary to reboot your computer. If not managed by the Operating System or PerfectDisk, your computer could become unbootable if a file needed to boot the system is moved beyond the BIOS limit of your computer. On Windows XP, this is a subset of the files listed in the layout.ini file (i.e., only those needed to boot the operating system). "
"Let PerfectDisk manage all the layout.ini files (Windows XP only) - if selected, PerfectDisk will defragment, and place all the files listed in the layout.ini file in order, starting at the beginning of your disk. This list contains all files loaded by Windows from the second you turn on your computer until about 1 minute after the desktop appears. This list not only contains the files needed to boot, but also the applications you routinely start after the system has booted."
