Does defragging take a long time?
Disk Defragmenter might take from several minutes to a few hours to finish, depending on the size and degree of fragmentation of your hard disk. You can still use your computer during the defragmentation process.
How do I speed up my defrag?
Here are a few tips that might help speed up the process:
- Run a Quick Defrag. This isn’t as thorough as a full defrag, but it’s a quick way to give your PC a boost.
- Run CCleaner before using Defraggler.
- Stop the VSS service when defragmenting your drive.
Is it OK to use computer while defragmenting?
To answer your question, no you should not use your computer while it is in the defragmentation process. You should have all programs closed while it is defragging as well. Any file that is being accessed by another program becomes immovable which defeats the purpose of defragging.
Can I pause Defraggler?
Defraggler defragments the selected drive. You can pause or stop the process at any time using the Pause and Stop buttons. Once defragmentation is complete, Defraggler will display a list of results.
