Can the software defrag the boot volume of my Mac system?

Yes, the software can defrag/optimize the boot volume of your Mac system. However, for this, the software prompts to create a bootable DVD first. You can boot the system from this bootable DVD and defrag the boot volume. If you have 'Lion' installed on your computer, you need to download a bootable image ('.dmg' file) using the link provided by Stellar and then burn it to a DVD to defrag the boot volume of your system.
