    Defragging a 2 Terabyte Drive


    I have a 2 Terabyte drive of which only 357 GB is used, leaving 1.45 TB free.
    With that much free space would it be beneficial to defrag my hard drive?

    Defragment and Optimize Drives Problem

    Hi Edward,

    Based on the details you have provided, your C drive was unrecognized by the system. We suggest that you run these
    commands and see if there are any changes:


    • Open
      Command Prompt
      as
      Administrator.

    • Run
      the following commands:

      • To fix any logical file errors:

        • Chkdsk C: /f /r


      • To defrag your Drive C manually:

        • Defrag C: /D /U

    Update us on how it goes.

    Regards.

  3. Windows Defrag

    When running defrag, there is a drive listing for Windows RE Tools. It shows as a solid state drive and that it has never been defragged. It will not optimize. Clicking on it does nothing. Any suggestions?

    Defragging a 2 Terabyte Drive

    " Defragment and Optimise Drives "

    Hi,

    First of all, I would like to describe the laptop that I have. I have an 128gb SSD which holds the OS on it and a 1 terabyte HDD which I use for all my programs, documents, music, videos etc etc, both came with the laptop. Now I know its safe and normal
    to defrag a HDD which I do probably 1 every 2 to 3 months but for the solid state drive I don't know what to do. When you search for defrag, the defrag and optimise box appears and shows both of my drives. For the SSD it won't give me the option to " analyse
    " but it does give me the option to " optimise ". Now does optimise mean defragmentation or does it actually mean optimise because those 2 words mean completely different things when were talking about HDD and SSD's.

    Does optimisation mean defragmentation under the " defragment and optimise drives " ?

    ( Side note, I am perfectly aware defragging a SSD is very bad due to its finite number of write cycles, there is also a lot of discussion online about not defragging an SSD because it doesn't need it ).
