Windows Thread, Defrag Problem in Technical; ...
8th January 2009, 03:59 PM #1
Hello, Iím trying to get out servers to defrag threw scheduled tasks every few weeks. I have found the command that should be working thatís, defrag Drive: -f but for some strange reason it doesnít work. To help work out what was going on I moved it to a bat file and had it out put to a file, that shows that the server is running the analyze but not running the defrag. Any thoughts??

Yes Iím positive that itís not running, as I said it outputs to a txt file that is recording and for testing purposes I have had the server trying every night when nothing else is running for the last 3 days its reported that its 12% fragmented with 24% file fragmentation.
The 2 weeks defrag is for our student data drive that gets bad in about 3 weeks other servers would run a lot less.

Sometimes Defrag won't run unless you run Scandisk first. Running Defrag every two weeks does seem OTT.
Problem is, if you choose the system drive to be Scandisk'ed this requires the server to be rebooted. Any other drive can be scanned within Windows itself.

Aslo won't run if you are down to less than 15% of drive volume. Check free space.

If you are considering third party programs, Diskeeper is a reliable program.

Diskeeper is stonking, but can be pricy. one to note, perhaps more for PC's which have had RAM upgrades is PageDefrag from sysinternals I've seen defraggler recentl;y and that looks ok too
