    Sure, you could include the other drive letter as well, but the drive letters must have a colon : after them and not the backslash / in front of them. For example, with drive letters C and E.

    defrag C: E: /F

    i was trying to use that because it says: /C - Perform the operation on all volumes. so it should work...

    but ill try individually tonight and will let you know if it works!

    Ah, I was thinking that you were wanting to do it on that drive letter instead of the switch, and just had the command wrong. Sorry about that. LOL

    Yes, you can also use the command below in a elevated command prompt if you wanted to defrag all volumes.

    defrag /C /F

    Is that with the separate drive letters?

    If so, then you may need to do a repair install if you do not have a restore point available that is dated before (if known when) this issue started to do a system restore with.

    well i think i will stick to defragging in safe mode or smth... dont wanna lose my tweaks.
    will i get better results with defraggler while running it normally logged in than by defragging with CMD also normally logged in?

    Because this is the only thing that is not working.

    I don't blame you if this is the only issue.

    I ended up using defraggler for both drives and im ok with that....
    I set it up with similar settings of windows disk defragmenter (not to defrag files with fragments under 64mb)

    Thanks for all time spent trying to help me!
