Is that ok? I have Corsair Force GT 120GB, but i see that schedule doesn't defragment my ssd, so i don't need to turn off schedule, right? Sorry for my bad english
Hello hibernate, and welcome to Seven Forums.

That would be correct. As long as it's not set to defrag your SSD, then it's perfectly fine to leave the schedule turned on if you like to defrag your other HDDs.

Shawn this is my new laptop and as soon as I click on the defrag in system tools it disappears and I am not sure what it is doing - is there a registry way of doing this please?

Hey John,

Is this for a SSD or HDD? You wouldn't want to defrag a SSD.

Does it Disk Defragmenter run if you run the dfrgui.exe file directly instead?

Thanks Brink, actually I need to disable the Disk Defragmenter Schedule CheckBox via registry!
Do you know which registry key to modify?
Please advise.
Cheers.

Hello omidsolo,

I'm afraid that I don't know a registry option.

I'd set it to defrag all 3 of your partitions once a week or once a month.

Most likely, you will never notice the difference.

You can choose "analyze" and get an idea of the defragmentation percentage any time you want.

I defragment once a week on an automated schedule and my fragmentation percentage is usually zero and never above 7 or 8 percent.

I have not done a manual defragmentation in 5 or 6 years.

Unless I am wrong my friend the defrag will do the whole disk and why are you so concerned a bout it defragging every week. If it were me with a spinner then I would leave it at that - my reasoning being that leave it for long periods and the defragging becomes a lengthy process and yes who is to say it might not cause problems.

If you go into settings for it you can set the defrag to work overnight if that is what is bothering you.
