    Dear members,

    Could anyone give me some proper instructions how to properly burn iDefrag on a disk so I can defrag my startup disk please?

    I've tried to burn the dmg a several times but it failed. I'm desperate for help right now :)

    Thanks in advance!

    You don't need to defrag a Mac.

    ...If you're doing it for performance reasons. Maybe the OP needs to defrag so he can partition the drive.

    A 100% true :)
    I've been getting this error when trying to partition for bootcamp

    "The disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved"

    Defragmentation should fix this problem

    If I recall correctly you just mount the image, select it in disk utility and hit burn.

    I think that function only comes with the newest 2.0.5 version. I have the 1.7.3 version
