Windows 7: Stopping Defragmentation

Stopping Defragmentation

I have always avoided stopping or shuting down my computer while defragging. Win 7 is the first time I have allowed defragging to be scheduled. I wonder if I would be prevented from shutting down the machine while a scheduled defrag was running?

Would it do harm?

I would really like to have the warm fuzzies about a scheduled defragmentation.

Thank you.

Hello Jsquareg,

If the scheduled defrag was running when you try to shutdown, it will cause shutdown to take a bit longer to complete, but it will cancel the defrag and continue to shutdown the computer without any harm being done.

That is comforting.

Thank you.
