    Location of MFT and MFT Zone


    Hi


    I am using an HP Laptop running Windows 10 Home 64-bit Version 1909 recently updated..


    I use Raxco Perfect Disc 14 Professional to defrag my hard disc drive and note that recently the visual display of the Hard Drive Blocks which it provides show that the MFT Blocks are no longer adjoined by the MFT Zone.


    Should it be the case that the MFT Blocks should precede the MFT Zone which I assume is free space for MFT to expand without fragmentation.


    Do I have a problem with my Windows 10.


    Eric

    MFT, page file location on hard disk (physical)

    MFT files contain internal information (data) about the "real" data stored on the volume.

    The are normaly located at the Beginning of the "partition".

    Also;

    Resident Attributes: Attributes that require a small amount of storage space are stored within the file's primary MFT record itself.

    Non-Resident Attributes: If an attribute requires more space than is available within the MFT, is not stored in that record, the attribute is placed in a separate location, with a pointer within the MFT that leads to the location of the attribute.

    So a NRA MRT file could be located wherever it fits on the HDD.

  3. Master file table (MFT) usage at 100%

    No need to worry, system tries to keep a free space just after MFT - so called MFT zone - to keep MFT non-fragmented if there will be needed to increase it size. In addition, small MFT fragmentation does not have noticeable negative effect.

    Master file table (MFT) usage at 100%

    Hi,

    MFT zone has nothing related with MFT size.

    Please, describe your problem with more details.
