Windows 7: How to Run Defrag

In Windows 7, defrag is typically setup to run automatically at least once a week.  To run a manual defrag, or to change the schedule of disk defragmenter, click Start and type Disk Defragmenter, then hit Enter.  From here you can click Configure Schedule to change when the defrag runs, or just click Defragment Disk to run a manual defrag.

    I run a commercial automatic defragger which I find is much easier to use and extremely efficient. As it defrags utilizing idle resources and also prevents some of the fragmentation, defrag job is taken care of without any hassles of scheduling or manually running it.
