Windows 7: Win 7Pro 64bit "Defrag" question

Win 7Pro 64bit "Defrag" question

When running "Defrag"....is there any danger to continuing to work on other programs/operations while defrag is running ? Or is it best to run defrag only and leave the PC alone ?

Also...if Defrag is running...any problems with any programs "Auto-Update" running...ie...virus software updates or any other program's normal updates in task manager ?

Thanks...TRinAZ

There shouldn't be any danger in that. I'm not a defragger but check this link out where Brink is explaining how to defrag properly

Disk Defragmenter - Open and Use

Good luck,

The defragmentation built into Windows 7 is designed to run in the background. So yes its fine to continue to use the computer to the fullest extent while it is running.
