Defrag wont schedule

  Vale46 23:34 18 Jan 2009

Hi all,

I want to make my defrag run on a shedule as recomended, so i set it to do this at 4pm everyday so when i get in from work my pc is at its optimum for me to start my hobbly of 3D modeling with 3DsMAX

Trouble is even though this is set, it tells me that the next schedule run is set to never, and sure enough if i sit and watch it at 4pm nothing happens !!??? unless i manually start it, so whats the point in setting the schedule ?

How can i automate this ?

Thanks for any ideas,

What Defrag program are you using?

If you want to automate the defrag process, the best option is Diskeeper 2009. It's not free, but it defrags faster than other utilities I've tried and you have the option of either leaving it in full automatic defrag mode, or specifying a time window when it should run. Works great either way.

Defragging everyday seems a bit excessive to me. Once a week or less would be recommended.

You can google for demo versions of third party automatic defragmentersand decide what works best for you.
