Windows 7 defragmentation

Configure Windows 7 defragmentation schedule

The Windows 7 defragmentation has been significantly expanded compared to the XP and Vista versions. In addition to a new user interface, several drives can now be defragmented in parallel. In addition, by taking NTFS metadata files into account, there should be a further optimization in terms of thoroughness. The detection of solid-state drives (e.g. flash storage devices such as USB sticks) offers an automatic deactivation of the defragmentation of such storage devices. The reason for this is, on the one hand, a theoretically limited write repeatability of this memory and, on the other hand, it makes no sense because no rotating parts are installed.



Another point that speaks for the new tool is its speed. Even with very full hard drives, the process is completed in less than ten minutes. The defragmentation function is automatically activated when Windows 7 is installed, but it is advisable to configure the schedule to ensure that the PC is switched on at the time of the planned execution. During the defragmentation, you should stop working on the computer, as data can be lost in the event of a system crash. The new interface and the configuration of a schedule are described below:
