    Questions about Automatic Maintenance

    I am not sure if there is a better name for Automatic Maintenance, I am referring to Control Panel > System and Security > Security and Maintenance > Maintenance > Automatic Maintenance.

    How I know defragmentation is part of Automatic Maintenance:

    • Open Defragmenter.
    • Go to Control Panel > System and Security > Security and Maintenance > Maintenance > Automatic Maintenance.
    • Start Maintenance.
    • Go back to defragmenter, you will see it starts running.
    Since Automatic Maintenance will try to run during idle time and defragmentation is part of it, my HDD is being (partially) defragmented everyday. Is it harmful to my HDD?

    Windows 11 Home Missing Notifications for Security and Maintenance

    Is Windows 11 Home supposed to have a Security and Maintenance notification option or provide notifications for when a Windows Defender Scan is Run?

    I recently bought a new Dell with Windows 11 Home.

    I uninstalled McAfee 1st thing. Both through windows and then again via a new download from McAfee for MCPR.exe

    I never get notifications that Windows Defender has run periodically.

    I checked Task Scheduler and even added a start of 7:00am with help from a MicroSoft Tech.

    Unlike Windows 10 Pro

    On my Win 11 Home PC;
    Settings (Also says "System") / "Notifications" / "Notifications from Apps and other senders";
    There is a short list of apps...
    There is NOT an on/off choice for
    Security and Maintenance (or anything resembling such)

    I read thread at:

    Redirecting

    Answer below Tells you how to schedule Maintenance in control panel.

    Are Windows Defender Scans in included in control panel Maintenance. I just ran a manual one. It completed, but no where do I see results or get notified a scan was even run.

    Interesting, but; how do you get the results of the automatic scan?

    Where are the notifications?

    Is Windows 11 Home supposed to have a Security and Maintenance notification option or provide notifications for when a Windows Defender Scan is Run?

    Windows 10 Automatic Maintenance ignoring my settings

    Hi, I can understand your concern.

    You may find the description of the time at which this runs here of interest:
    Change Automatic Maintenance Settings in Windows 10

    This suggests the task would not run if the computer is deemed 'busy'.

    Also:
    Specify Automatic Maintenance Time to Run in Windows 10
    (Notice in the tutorials group policy is given first, the registry equivalent for Home follows).

    This may be of interest:

    whilst
    Enable or Disable Scheduled System Maintenance in Windows
    might be useful should you wish to ensure it is not run at some point.

    This may be of interest on stopping shortcut removal, although the final comment suggests it isn't effective.
