Windows 7: Hacking Disk Defragmenter's 'Last Run' Entry

Hacking Disk Defragmenter's 'Last Run' Entry

Hi all, just like the title says, any way to do this? I ported my system drive from a spindle HDD to an SSD, by 1:1 cloning, and so all particulars get cloned over, like last defragmented date.

i would like the defragmenter to read 'Never Run'.

Just a cosmetic, thanks.

What defragmentter did you use?
Was it Windows built in or third party?

I hope this helps!

Right-click on the HDD > select Properties > click Tools and Defragment Now…. > click Configure Schedule > click Select Disks.
If the SSD is missing from the screen, then the SSD has been detected by Win 7 and it will not be defragmented.
If the SSD is listed, remove the checkmark.

I hope this helps!

Hi Paul, very innovative method to try to achieve this. but at the last part, my ssd is listed, but when i remove the check mark, the panel does not allow me to complete - the 'OK' greys out.

how do i get systemto recognize my ssd so that i never see it here at defrawgmentation again?

Just an idea, try it in Safe Mode!

Disk defragmenter would not start in safe mode. i see the button, but clicking on it is unresponsive.

Anyway there is must be a more direct approach to hack this. it must have been recorded in some log, i need to know where and how to rewrite it.

EDIT*

Will physically removing the disk and re-slotting it do the trick? will this reset the defragmenter status to 'Never Run'?

EDIT*

No it doesn't. Just tested. i need to trace where those logs are kept and hack them if it is possible.

Disk Defragmenter Question.
In an effort to resolve slow speed problems I opened Disk Defragmenter window which states that " Only Disks Shown Can Be Defragmented", however, four disks are shown including "System" which is 35% fragmented. Can this disk be defragmented? If so, How? Incidentally Disk "C" is only 3% fragmented.
