how can i know if w7 did optimaze boot defrag and Prefetch data?

Hi
how can i know if w7 did optimaze boot defrag and Prefetch data?

i mean is there a regkey or files that let me know if w7 did perform a boot defrag and did optimaze the prefect boot & data?

xp does every 3 boots after an x minutes (i guess 30) idle time

how does w7 perform these actions?
and how do I know when w7 did it the last time

thanks
cheers

Windows 7 does it every boot, and defrags once a week if you did not disable the buildin defrag.

You can defrag the boot files using the undocumented switch /b. e.g. defrag C: /b

If you really want to know whether Prefetch is working as it should, do this:
  • Delete the contents of C:\Windows\Prefetch.
  • Restart. Observe how long it takes to get to the desktop and how quickly programs start when launched.
  • Use your system for a few minutes.
  • Restart again. This time make the same observations. You'll find that it's already much faster the second time around.

Boot time defrag
I hate to ask what to some might seem like a dumb question, but what is the difference between "defrag" and "boot time defrag"? Puran defrag offers these options.http://cssimg.sevenforumscdn.com/images/smilies/confused.gif Thanks.

Can't defrag DATA (D) drive?
Opened Disk Defragmenter. DATA (D) is showing 21% fragmented. However when I highlight this drive, it is only highlighted for about a second and I can't get this drive to be degragged. I can defrag the OS (C) drive, though. What's up.

Prefetch data deleted.
I am currently running the 7022 32bit build. For some unexplainable reason my prefetch data gets deleted everytime I restart. Resulting in me losing all changes I make to my system. Anyone out there with suggestions? Regards.
