Built in W7 one - I didn't realize it was working in the background until I went to defrag. Should it be set to defrag all drives (internal and external)? It shows it defragged the "Restore"...

I have 2 questions, one from a couple posts up:

Thanks! I don't think just "Disabling" gets rid of the hiberfil file, I think you have to delete it manually. I turned off hibernate a week ago, yet I have a 4.5 gb hiberfil file, dated today. I...

Macrium Partitions

Is it a good idea to shrink your "C"-OS partition to 80-100 gb (250gb HD), so that the image is smaller and can restore to a smaller partition? (as long as my winsxs folder doesn't keep growing) I...
