Defragment several disks automatically without monitoring

By Monday, September 19, 2011 , , No comments
                 Regular defragmentation keeps the system performance consistent. But you cannot sit at your PC through this entire  process.  What  is  also irritating is that defragmentation needs to be manually activated if there are several hard disks.
                 The graphical interface of Windows’ defragmenter does not provide the option to process several drives one
after the other, at least under XP. What a lot  of  people  don’t  know  is  that  Windows has an additional command line tool called  ‘defrag.exe’  that  is  suitable  for batch processing as well. You can use it to automate the defragmentation of several drives. If you operate a system with the drives C, D and E for instance, enter the following in Notepad:
@echo off
defrag.exe -f c
defrag.exe -f d
defrag.exe -f e
Save the fi le as ‘defrag.cmd’. If you are using other drive names or more drives, change the file accordingly. Double click this fi le to defragment all hard disk partitions one after the other automatically without a break. However you need to be logged in with administrator rights for running the file. The used parameter ‘-f’ carries out the defragmentation even if the hard disk hasless than 10 percent free space, without pausing for an error message. But the process takes too long in that case. What you can do is delete the large fi les that are no longer required.
                  Vista and Windows 7 regulate defragmentation automatically on the basis of a schedule. Irrespective of that, you can either use the batch processing operation via ‘defrag.exe’ or even select several drives simultaneously with the graphical interface.
                  For this, right click a drive entry ( Explorer) for both the versions, select
the context command ‘Properties’, activate the tab ‘Tools’ and then click the ‘Defragment now’ button. Under Vista, click the ‘Select Volumes’ button and you can then activate several drives for defragmentation or select ‘Select all data carriers’. Under Win7, keep the [Ctrl] key pressed and then select the desired drives by clicking the entries one after the other.
