Defragmentaion on Windows 7


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, I just defraged my hard-drive (C Drive) and this is how I did it. Please verify that I did it correctly.

First I clicked the Start orb, and searched "defrag". Then I pressed "Enter". Then, I clicked "Analyze disk". It finished whatever it needed to analyze and found 4% fragmentation. I then clicked "Defrag" and it started to defrag. It took about 10 mins and when I was done, the 4% turned to a 0%. It did about 8-10 "passes". Then, it didn't ask for a reboot (i'm not sure if it's supposed to). I just exited out and manually restarted the computer. Logged into my account and then here I am. Nothing more. Did I do it right? I have noticed that documents and applications open a bit faster than before. Thanks in advance!

Yes, that's correct.

It won't ask for a reboot.

FYI You can set this to run automatically on a regular basis -- I think it is enabled by default and runs weekly at 0200 AM (or something like that) on Wednesday. Needless to say, the computer needs to be powered on, and you can change the setting to run at a different time or day.

HTH,

Thanks, first time I've defraged my computer. I was kinda suprised when I noticed only 4% fragmentation. Then I remembered that it was scheduled to run on default. Thanks for the info :)

Unless it was disabled it is on by default already on Windows 7 - look in your Scheduled Tasks

Yes, I checked. Thanks :)
