PerfectDisk 13 Service Pack 4 (Build 843) has been released, which adds the ability to exclude files approaching the FAL maximum size from defragmentation operations, adds vSphere 6.0 compatibility, and fixes a Log Viewer sorting issue.
Exclude Files Approaching FAL Maximum Size
PerfectDisk 13 Service Pack 4 (Build 843) adds the ability to detect files that are approaching the NTFS File Attribute List max size of 256KB and exclude them from defragmentation operations. Files that exceed this limit can not create additional file fragments – resulting in application or other errors. Note that this limit has nothing to do with the actual size of a file. This limit has to do with how badly fragmented the file is.
If a file is badly fragmented and is approaching this limit, defragmenting the file could push it over the limit and you may see error messages, such as:
-Insufficient system resources exist to complete the requested service
-The requested operation could not be completed due to a file system limitation
