Windows 7: Disk Defrag isnt working in Windows 7?

Disk Defrag isnt working in Windows 7?

I have a E drive that's 1.5TB and I download movies and delete movies from there. I know 100% its fragmented like crazy. But when windows 7 analyzes it it says its 0% fragment. Is this correct?

Hi zaytsevi,

I have some rather large drives too, so I thought I'd try Krispy1's suggestion to give you a point of reference. Mine are fine and all de-fragemented, with two exceptions.
1. My Server 2008 drive which is a dual boot to this OS does not have the correct permissions to allow de-fragmentation from Windows 7.
2. My OS_OLD drive (I just rebuilt last week) is connected via USB at the moment, so it's not normally there.

Everything else is 0% or 1% telling me that the windows defragmenter is working (and was working before my rebuild). Hope this helps.

Tim

Is your E: drive configured to run defrag on a schedule? In that case, defrag would run in the background and keep the drive unfragmented without your intervention.

I too should have clarified if you had scheduled this..... and let you know that mine is scheduled (for relevance to my earlier post)

yea bill may be correct because by default windows 7 defrags in the backround once a week

May I suggest the Auslogics Disk and Registry defraggers.

Both are free, and when run after CCleaner disk and Registry cleaning keep my installs whistle clean and perfectly ordered.

These are the state-of-the-art tools for cleaning and leave nothing to be desired.

My 2 cents

I downloaded this defragger and used it, and optimized. I think I see an improvement in performance. I use Ccleaner for cleaning only, and now I will use this defragger for defragging instead of Windows defragger, but..... I don't recommend using ANYTHING other than Windows 7's built in systems for messing with the registry. DON'T MESS WITH THE REGISTRY UNLESS YOU ARE A PRO, AND YOU HAVE A KNOWN PROBLEM AND A KNOWN SOLUTION FOR THAT SPECIFIC PROBLEM! This is the voice of experience talking here.
