Defragment Disks

Use the Task Defragment Disks to defragment and optimize local drives and system drives. If you schedule this Task as a regular Job, you can schedule automatic disk defragmentation at regular intervals.

  • You cannot defragment volumes that are marked as dirty, which indicates possible corruption. Therefore, it is recommended to schedule a Task Analyze Disk Fragmentation before you schedule a Task Defragment Disks. This also enables you to check which drives need to be defragmented and optimized.
  • Optimization of folders is restricted to NTFS file systems, because FAT systems do not allow changes in the address of the first cluster of directories.
