Title: Slow ppf-o-matic? Read this!
Post by: Xifanie on September 27, 2015, 05:42:35 PM
It is taking you hours to patch a ppf file?

I've decided to investigate and finally once and for all get rid of this issue.
It turns that ppf-o-matic just hates fragmented ISOs. But don't worry: there's a very simple to fix. You just need the right program. It's called "Defraggler" and it allows to completely defragment individual files.

1. Download, Install and Open Defraggler

Now just wait for it to complete...

3. Patch away!
The process should be way faster now. Enjoy!

Thanks for finding this Xifanie! I know that whenever I tried to patch before it would take forever

You're welcome~

I knew that if I did figure it out, it would help a ton of people. I'm just glad that Defraggler exists, because it is so unbelievably convenient in this case.
