Your OS should have windows defrag set to run on a schedule. You should not need to run another, 3rd party defragger. If your drive is SSD you should not defrag it.

Thank you for replying. I do appreciate it.


Let me assure you that I do not consider myself a computer expert or even computer literate, but what I have noticed is that when my computer starts to get slow one thing I can do to speed it back up is defrag it. Why this works, I do not know, I only know it works.

If you want to boost your laptop, install a SSD.

- Option one: Replace the HDD with a SSD (256 or 512G).
- Option two: Replace your ODD with a HDD caddy. Install a small SSD (120G) for windows and programs and use the HDD for data. You will have the speed of a SSD and the space of a HDD at low cost.

If you take a look at Task Scheduler, you should be able to see if Defrag is enabled, and if so, when it is scheduled to run. You can add or alter the time it runs to whatever you wish. If you have a SSD you don't defrag them.

Upgrading to SSD and more RAM is an excellent way to improve boot, shutdown and overall performance.
