Q: How can I force a boot file optimization so that key files are moved to the outer tracks of my hard disk?

A: Defrag.exe has an undocumented switch, -b, that looks at the information in Prefetch\Layout.ini and moves the files to the outer tracks of the disk. For example, you can run

defrag c: /b
