system defragmentation

Hi Everybody, I have system defrag turned off. I just wondered if it is normal for the system reserved to
say 13% fragmented. The internal drive is a Toshiba DTO1ACA1OO, 1tb. Have been a bit curious about it
for awhile.

System Reserved -- do you mean the System Reserved partition? If yes, do not anything to that, let Windows take care of that hidden partition. If you meant defragging your OS partition, your Windows system partition -- no problem at all, defrag away perhaps once monthly or so.

system defrag

Thank you RolandJs, Yes it was the system reserved partition, I should have explained better. I have always left it alone, I just did not know if 13% was normal for it. Thank you.
