Defragment
« on: October 29, 2012, 12:56:12 PM »
Hey Guys

  Looking for a way to completely defrag my drives without using third party defragmenters. I read somewhere that -w switch is not supported in windows 7. Is this true? Normally I use "defrag c: -v -w".

Put this in a bat file :wink:

start /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\System32\defrag.exe C: /H /V
start /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\System32\defrag.exe C: /H /V /X

Just the C: drive. If you want to add other drives you do it like this, you will see D: is added

start /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\System32\defrag.exe C: D: /H /V
start /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\System32\defrag.exe C: D: /H /V /X

Thanks for that. Right when you sent it I figured out how to make bat file. It was easier than I thought. Good to know.

Very odd. Can you run it from a cmd window your self?

Also try this in the bat file

start /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\System32\defrag.exe C: /H /V
start /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\System32\defrag.exe C: /H /V /X

OK so you can run defrag from cmd manually.

Try this, move the bat file to the root of the C: drive and try it.

I notice where you are running the bat file that there is a space in the path. That might be getting in the way.

what the crap lol. I wonder if something is blocking the bat file?

Here is a way to test. Open a cmd.exe window and past this in

start /wait %SYSTEMDRIVE%\Windows\System32\defrag.exe C: /H /V

Does it work?

Then something is blocking the bat file. What AV do you have installed?

I know Avast has a sandbox mode (Which I disable)

Try disabling avast all together and any other protection you have and see.

Very odd something is blocking the bat file.

Dont see why it would be. You can run the commands from a cmd window but not from a bat file.

Not sure what is going on there. It is like the bat file doesnt have permission to access the system32 dir.
