  1. Defragment and Optimize Drives & Task scheduler not working.


    I want to defrag my drives but I get an error every time I start up the defragment service. The error I am getting is "Storage optimization cannot start because the task scheduler service is not running. Start the task scheduler service and try again.". And when I start the Task Scheduler in the services.msc the error I get is "The Task Scheduler service on Local Computer started and then stopped. Some services stop automatically if they are not in use by other services or programs."

    :)

    Can not run defrag Error: Storage Optimization cannot start because task scheduler service is not running

    Can not run defrag Error: Storage Optimization cannot start because task scheduler service is not running.

    Tried running task scheduler that just moans about there being no remote system. Won't let me do anything else.

    Defrag still won't run.

    Any ideas/suggestions?

    Optimize and Defrag Schedule issue


    Check that your Task scheduler defrag task does not have the idle condition set -
    • Task scheduler library, Microsoft, Windows , Defrag
    • While you are there, check that its Action tab correctly refers to the drive you are investigating. If you have been doing any repartitioning work the task definition might not have changed automatically.

    The idle condition used to be set by default in Windows 7 but I thought it had been changed in Windows 10.
    If the idle condition is set then it is perfectly possible that optimisation never runs.
    If, like me, you turn off / sleep your computer when you are not using it then it will never be idle.

    If automatic optimisation [defrag, trim] really is not running despite the correct settings having been made then there is nothing stopping you from creating your own defrag task.
    • You can crib the settings from the default task definition then just tailor them to your own requirements.
