Windows 7: defrag c: -w -v worked on vista?

22 Jul 2012   #11

Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate

The -w switch seems to work here on my computer Windows 7 64bits SP1. It is not listed when you defrag /? but there is also no error message.

Another undocumented switch is the /b (boot optimization) which only works on the boot volume.

Allowing the app to run with a particular switch option with no feedback and actually doing something are two different things .

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.
