running defrag

  ricky J 10:40 17 Aug 2006

Running XP pro and want to schedule defrag to run every month, have tried scheduled tasks but can't seem to find defrag.
Is it possible to do or do i have to buy fancy software?

Not keen on downloading more software, i just want to set the default defrag program to run on a regular basis, is this possible?
