This still loads the OS but runs the defragger under less processes loaded than for Safe Mode. Day by day it started decreasing and i saw 20gb today.

A bigger allocation means you can keep more restore points, while a smaller space means fewer can be created before older ones are automatically deleted. weblink Schedule the defrag to run and complete on the same day and before you run a full backup, and do not defrag on the days you run the incremental or differential Page 1 of 2 1 2 Next > Dave \Crash\ Dummy Guest My Windows 7 x64 system has 6 fragmented files totaling 3 GB in the System Volume Information folder.

I just wondered if there was a utility that did the >> job. Welcome to OCF! You can modify it to have automatic snapshots run less frequently if you prefer.
So sometime in a few months there may be a chance that I'm not using my host and the defrag task gets to run and also complete. The time now is 07:47 PM. Defragmenting the hard disk will defrag those files which can improve the system performance significantly. If you would like to free up hard disk space, have a look at the following items: C:\HIBERFIL.SYS (hidden, as big as the available RAM memory) The hibernation file is a

Considering how little difference in performance would result between using a boot disc with defragger and using a boot-time defragger, pick whatever method you like. Keep in mind those permissions should carry over so you probably still won't be able to defrag that. The > article mentions Auslogics but doesn't include it in the feature > comparison chart.
