Windows 7: scheduled Disk defrag does not run

scheduled Disk defrag does not run

Dear forum members, my scheduled Disk defrag does not run in Win7 home 64 bit. I have made sure that all appropriate areas are ticked. Also in Services.msc the defragmenter is set to automatic and I have started the service. No Go. I have tried setting daily 5pm no go, 6pm and watched, no go. I have ticked only C: no go. Nothing so far has corrected the problem. The program that was always on was Zone Alarm Pro. That should not matter as web access is not necessary. Does anyone have any ideas? A web search turned up other people with the same unsolved problem. Regards Peter

What if you manually run an analyze? Or manually kick off a defrg? Will it run automatically after that?

defrag

Hi Desslok, that did not work either. I have since declared defeat and got another defragger. Smart Defrag. Too bad it would be nice to be able to fix the problem. Regards Peter

Windows Disk Defrag Doesn't Defrag
Disk defrag stops analyzing at 62% and doesn't go any further. So I downloaded Defraggler and ran it. It worked but it wouldn't defrag down to 0% fragmentation, It still shows 4% after defrag.

Does Scheduled Defrags analyze the disk first?
I have my disk defragmenter set to run every Sunday at 6, yet sometimes I'll go back after 6 and do a disk analysis and I'll see that 1-2% is defragged! Does the scheduled disk defrag program not analyze the disk first? If that's the case it will never defrag anyway, right?
