Windows 7: Defrag Blocked

I used to use Defraggler with XP, but it seems to foul up w7, it needs files where it expects them to be. Puran Free works well and it can do a boot-time defrag.

Thanks. I referring to the disk on my desktop; it has a little over 1TB on it. It also gets a lot of activity.

I was wondering if Defraggler might be the reason why it took so long to defrag. I'll find out in a couple of weeks or so.

Is it basically bulk files, like music, video's, pictures, etc? I have a few 4TB drives and a few 2TB drives and none of them take very long.

I just had a thought strike me. Actually, it was more like it whomped me upside the head. Now that I'm back off the floor and my eyes are no longer crossed... I have no idea why I was worried about automatic defragging on my notebook after I install the SSD. There will be only one drive—the SSD—so there aren't going to be any spinners in the machine. It won't matter if I don't do a clean install. All I have to do is disable defrag. Duh!

I'm surprised one of you all didn't pickup on that blooper.

Because post #1 didn't mention a notebook. It simply said it turned off drgrag on spinners too.

SSDs will show up in the Defrag initial screen. When you click on the schedule to select the disks to defrag is when the SSDs is/are hidden. It's a little confusing since the first screen says "only disks that can be defragmented are shown". This is the truth though since you can force a defrag on a SSD from that screen. This is my schedule. The C drive is a SSD.

Does Windows Defrag defrag system files?
