Make Windows Vista Defrag Less OftenApril 24, 2009 – 11:54 AM
I just noticed this today but it looks as though the Disk Defragmenter in Windows Vista is scheduled to run once a week by default.
Personally, I think that with these newer and more efficient operating systems, not to mention the growing sizes of hard drives, that this is completely overkill. Maybe monthly at least? Quarterly? But weekly is way too much in my option. When I look at the options for rescheduling it shows Monthly as being the max amount of time that you can choose:
If you choose to keep it scheduled, at least go with the Monthly option. Your hard drive will thank you.
