    I tried Defraggler when the newsletter recommended it, and while it does a good job there is no option I can find where you can just set it to do all your partitions at once. You have to initiate the defrag on each partition separately. This is a big time-waster.

    Back to my old faithful - Vopt . . .

    Code:
    for %%a in (c d e) do "C:\Program Files\Defraggler\df.exe" %%a:
    as a BATch file. No time wasted at all; start it off before you go to bed.
    Add
    Code:
    shutdown /s
    as a second line if you want the PC to shutdown when finished.

    The point about defragmenting one partition after another needs only a little thought to realise that if you are defragmenting more than one partition on a hard disk, the disk heads will be flying up and down between partitions across large areas of the disk, rather than, more efficiently, just within a single partition at a time...

    The best IMHO defragger is Auslogics Defrag. I never defrag anything except C: drive which I do in 'SafeMode' using these settings.

    Thanks, BATcher - that script would be really helpful if I only knew what to do with it. Did some programming in the late '70s - on cards even, and some HTML in the mid '90s, but since then my brain has become completely filled with grandchildren and I no longer remember anything I knew and haven't learned much either.

    And while VOPT does defrag all partitions, it does them sequentially, so none of the flailing that you were mentioning.

    Gizmo Richards has now listed Auslogics as his best pick as well. I have used it for a couple of years with no problems and great results.
