    Is there any way to automatically do a defrag, scheduled say once a week or something?

    sure, pay for a program like Diskeeper (not Diskeeper Lite)

    I think you can create a scheduled task in Windows, there should be something in control panel about scheduled tasks :cheers:

    yup yup...but don't forget to add the drive letter (for which you want the defrag to take place) in the advanced properties of that job :thumb:

    if you like Diskeeper Lite over simple "defrag" then you can schedule it to run whenever you want. why would you want to pay? :?:

    I said that because Diskeeper Lite doesn't have any scheduling options, creating a scheduled task never accoured to me

    absolutly, imo windows defrag is crap. Download Diskeeper Lite and degrag with Windows Defrag before you use it, then defrag with Diskeeper Lite... the results speak for themsleves :thumb:

    Having used Diskeeper Lite for a while now I can tell you that it does defrag a lot faster than the built in application. As to if it does a better job ... I'm not really sure. So far my system has been happy with it.

    Only reason that I switched over was when my son installed one too many programs on my old hard drive and no matter how much I deleted XP's defrag utility said it required more empty space to work .... Diskeeper Lite had no such problem and fixed the disk up again.

    Crude but Effective ... it is a way of life.
