Compacting the Registry
The registry files in Windows can become fragmented over time, occupying more space on your hard disk than necessary and decreasing overall performance.
The program works by recreating each registry hive "from scratch", thus removing any slack space that may be left from previously modified or deleted keys. Note that this function does NOT change the contents of the registry in any way, nor does it physically defrag the registry files on the drive. The optimization done is simply compacting the registry hives to the minimum size possible.
