Defragment detail information

Is there information available after a defragment routine that is like the information found after a scan disc?
I have looked at the Windows Event Viewer but I did not know what to look for.
Thank you for your help.

Welcome to Seven Forums ddh.

No, there is nothing recorded in Event Viewer. But you can generate an analysis report at any time by using defrag from the command line in an elevated command prompt.

The command DEFRAG C: /A /V will generate an analysis report only. The command DEFRAG C: /U /V will defragment the C: drive and give a before and after analysis report.

Bree - Thank you for your reply.

I don't know where the "command line in an elevated command prompt"
is located, please let me know where to enter it.

I would use the command " DEFRAG C: /U /V " to view the information before and after.

Thank you for your help.

It simply means when you open a Command Prompt you should run it as an administrator. See this tutorial...

NOTE:


Just don't EVER try to do a Defrag on an SSD. They don't like that!!!


An SSD is just like a USB Flash Drive. To refresh it, you backup all its contents, then wipe it and do a restore of the backup. (you can skip the WIPE if you want) A Restore of a backup Image, will simply overwrite all the drives contents.


I've been using a Ghost Backup followed by a Ghost restore, to Defrag my HD's for years. Works great.


Y'all have a great 2020 now, Y'hear?

One can TRIM an SSD; avoid defragging as TechnoMage said.
