Windows 7: Enable test mode to solve USB problems?

22 Jan 2015   #311

x64 (6.3.9600) Win8.1 Pro & soon dual boot x64 (6.1.7601) Win7_SP1 HomePrem

You're most welcome.

I'm glad, I'm glad, I'm glad
I'm so glad.....

Before reverting the changes made during trouble shooting,
please run a few iterations of Windows defrag.

Hibernation and Restore Points use disk space and the defrag will be better without those files on the disk.

This will probably take a while, so overnight is a good plan

In windows Exlorer
Right click on C:\
select properties
press the tools tab
press the [Defragment] button (might just be Defrag)
A new window is presented showing your partitions (drives)
Select the C:\ drive
press the [Defragment] button (might just be Defrag) in that window.
it will churn for as long as it takes.

I determine the effectiveness of the operation by the number of passes it executes.
If it only executes 3 or 4 passes, that's pretty good - that's what I try to get down to.

I've seen it as high as 12 passes on my machine. It takes a few executions to get it down to an acceptable fragmentation level.
I think I said 5 passes was good enough when it started at 12. You'll be hard pressed to get it to one and it's not worth the time. As soon as anything gets written to the disk, fragmentation begins again. That's why it should be scheduled once a week (you'll see the place to check that)

Run one execution of defrag tonight, another on Friday night and a third on Saturday night. See how many passes it takes on Sunday morning or afternoon.
