    Windows 10 disk defrag not there.


    I have Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and two SSD's. I wanted to setup defrag to run trim regularly but disk defrag does not seem to be installed. When I go to the tools of my SSD and click optimize nothing happens and the disk defrag service is not even installed. How can I resolve this issue? My SSD's are Samsung and I tried Samsung Magician but when I try to optimize then with that it gives me the error that disk defrag is not running.

    Cheers,
    Joe

  2. disk defragmenting

    Sign in to your Windows 10 computer with an administrator account. It is important to use an administrator account because standard account holders cannot defrag the hard disk drive.

    Click the Start button.

    From the left pane of the Start menu, click File Explorer.

    On the opened window, from the navigation pane in the left, expand the This PC tree.

    From the expanded list, right-click Local Disk (C: ) or any other partition on which Windows 10 is installed.

    From the context menu, click Properties.

    On the opened Local Disk (C: ) Properties box, go to the Tools tab.

    From the displayed interface, under the Optimize and defragment drive section, click the Optimize button.

    On the Optimize Drives box, from the displayed list, ensure that the system drive (C: in this example) is selected.

    Click the Analyze button from below the list.

    Wait until Windows completes the analysis and displays the percentage of the fragmented files in the selected drive.

    Note: If there are no fragmented files in the drive, Windows displays a message box stating that the disk does not need to be defragmented.

    After Windows completes the analysis, click the Optimize button to start the defragmentation process on the selected volume.

    Wait until Windows defragments the drive successfully, restart the PC, and start using Windows 10 normally.

  3. defrag

    Hi Kim,

    It is important to use an administrator account because standard account holders
    cannot defrag the hard disk drive. We would like to ask for additional information. Please provide the following:

    • Which build of Windows 10 are you using? To know about it, hit
      Start, type Winver and then press
      Enter. You could also press Windows Key + R, type
      Winver into the
      Run dialog and press Enter.
    • Are you using the administrator account on your computer or a Microsoft/guest account?
    • Were there any changes made on your computer prior to the issue?
    • Since you've mentioned that it refuses to defrag, can you please provide us with a screenshot of it? You may refer to this

      link
      on how to include a screenshot in your post.

    Moreover, we recommend that you use the administrator account registered on your computer the defrag it. To optimize them:

    • Select the search bar on the taskbar and enter defrag.

    • Select Defragment and Optimize Drives.

    • Select the disk drive you want to optimize.

    • Select the Optimize button.

    Looking forward to the requested information and the results of the recommended troubleshooting steps.

    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?
