Windows 7: Does W7 On-Board Defrager Do Boot Time Defrags?

Does W7 On-Board Defrager Do Boot Time Defrags?

I have been searching and have not found any credible info on whether or not the stock W7 defragger does periodic boot time defrags to defrag those files that can't be accessed while windows is running. If it does do a boot time defrag, does the defragger have to be "turned on" (scheduled defrag time set), or will it still do a boot time if I have scheduling turned off?

No it doesn't have a option to do boot time defrag although i know of a tool that has the option that will let you do a boot defrag. Try the program Smart Defrag, it works great on my windows 7 laptop and desktop. I hope this helps you out.

Very small amount of files cannot be defragged but a lot can while the system is running. Microsoft put a lot of working in getting those files to be moveable while in use. So its less needed to have such a feature.

Thanks to both of you. I like SD2 too, and I am thinking of re-installing it to just utilize the boot time defrag option.

20 min+ boot time, boot is in slow motion
So this started about 5 days ago, and it was out of the blue. The boot would take 18 to 23 minutes. The weird thing is that is is in slow motion, like when the window first shows up by the stars coming together in a spiral, the stars are moving really slowly. Originally it was slow rendering the...

Does Scheduled Defrags analyze the disk first?
I have my disk defragmenter set to run every Sunday at 6, yet sometimes I'll go back after 6 and do a disk analysis and I'll see that 1-2% is defragged! Does the scheduled disk defrag program not analyze the disk first? If that's the case it will never defrag anyway, right?

Boot time
Although they haven’t set it as an official objective, it seems Microsoft have set an unofficial target of achieving a sub 15 seconds boot time with Windows 7. On the Windows 7 Engineering blog Michael Fortin stats that: In the lab, a very good system is one that boots in under 15 seconds. ...
