How can i defrag my dell optiplex 380


Here's how you can defragment your disk:

Windows Vista, 7:

  1. Open Disk Defragmenter by clicking the Start button . In the search box, type Disk Defragmenter, and then, in the list of results, click Disk Defragmenter.
  2. Under Current status, select the disk you want to defragment.
  3. To determine if the disk needs to be defragmented or not, click Analyze disk. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
    Once Windows is finished analyzing the disk, you can check the percentage of fragmentation on the disk in the Last Run column. If the number is above 10%, you should defragment the disk.
  4. Click Defragment disk. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
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.

Windows XP:

  1. Open My Computer.
  2. Right-click the local disk volume that you want to defragment, and then click Properties.
  3. On the Tools tab, click Defragment Now.
  4. Click Defragment.

My N100 notebook is very slow in process


if it is a windows computer, try running defragmenter and disk cleanup.
to run defragmenter, in the search box in the start menu (in vista and windows 7) and search "defragmenter" select the c drive, and defragment it.. while you're at it, set up a weekly defragment with the defragmenter schedule.
To run disk cleanup, search for "disk cleanup" in the same search box. select the c drive, and check all the things you want to clean up.
you can always just do a scan with your antivirus to check if theres a virus slowing your system down.

Improve performance by defragmenting your hard disk


Fragmentation makes your hard disk do extra work that can slow down your computer. Removable storage devices such as USB flash drives can also become fragmented. Disk Defragmenter rearranges fragmented data so your disks and drives can work more efficiently. Disk Defragmenter runs on a schedule, but you can also analyze and defragment your disks and drives manually. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. ?id=microsoft.windows.resources.shellexecutetopiciconClick to open Disk Defragmenter.

  2. Under Current status, select the disk you want to defragment.

  3. To determine if the disk needs to be defragmented or not, click Analyze disk. ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

    Once Windows is finished analyzing the disk, you can check the percentage of fragmentation on the disk in the Last Run column. If the number is above 10%, you should defragment the disk.

  4. Click Defragment disk. ?id=18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

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.
Notes

  • If the disk is already in exclusive use by another program, or if the disk is formatted using a file system other than NTFS file system, FAT, or FAT32, it can't be defragmented.

  • Network locations can't be defragmented.

  • If a disk that you're expecting to see under Current status is not showing up there, it might be because it contains an error. You should try to repair the disk first, then return to Disk Defragmenter to try again. See Check your hard disk for errors for more information.

Have an ACER netbook. It was running very slowly. Was told that there is zero space left on the hard drive and that a system restore is required. Would you please tell me how to do this? Thanks


Hi,

I recommend you have a quick look in your documents, music & pictures folders and clean out unused/unwanted files first.

System restore is a great tool but not usually the right tool to use to free up hdd space :)

If your running on Windows I also suggest running the Disk Cleanup wizard.

Win 7 / Vista : Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup.

Win XP : Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Cleanup.

Once DC has analyzed the PC it will come up with a set of options. It should be safe to select the following and Click OK to continue removing them.
  1. Temporary Internet Files
  2. Recycle Bin
  3. Debug Dump files (WIN 7 / Vista)
  4. Temporary Files
Once you click OK Windows will then remove these files from your HDD freeing up some space. Its always a good idea to run Disk Defragmenter afterwards to ensure optimum performance.

Win 7 / Vista : Start -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter.

Win XP : Start -> All programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> Disk Defragmenter.

Select your primary O/S drive (usually C:) from the list and Click Defragment. Wait for the Defragementer to complete (It might take some time :) ) then restart the PC.

Hope this helps

:)

When I try to defrag my hard drive, I get a message which says "disk defragmenter could not open".


Possible Solutions:
1. Turn page file on.

Turning the page file on is a relatively simple process. Begin by selecting Start and right-clicking My Computer. Choose Properties and then press the Advanced tab. Next, choose the Settings button that is located in the Performance area; choose the Advanced tab in this area, and then press the Change button that is found in the Virtual Memory area. There will be a choice called System Managed Size in the Virtual Memory area, select it, press Set (this one is important), and then choose OK. The final move is the most important one; at this point you need to restart the PC. After you finish following these directions Disk Defragmenter should be available to do its magic.

2. Re-register the defragmenters snap-in files

It is possible that you install a third-party defragmenter like Diskeeper, then on uninstalling, it does not restore the built-in one correctly. Open Command Prompt (good ol' DOS) by clicking Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> Command Prompt. At the command prompt type,
cd \windows\system32And then register the defrag components, by typing:
regsvr32 dfrgsnap.dll
regsvr32 dfrgui.dll

At this stage, you may find the disc defragmenter works. If not, there is one more step you can do.

Using Windows Explorer browse to your windows\inf folder.
In there you will find a file called dfrg.inf right click this file, and select Install.

3. Check if you have enough free space on the drive you want to defrag. It should have at least 15% free space.
A volume must have at least 15% free space for defrag to completely and adequately defragment it. Defrag uses this space as a sorting area for file fragments. If a volume has less than 15% free space, defrag will only partially defragment it. To increase the free space on a volume, delete unneeded files or move them to another disk.

4. Run CHKDSK on the volume first before defragmenting.
To run chkdsk on a volume (partition, disk), go to Windows Explorer (not to be confused with Internet Explorer) -> right click the partition -> Properties -> Tools tab -> Check now -> place check marks as required -> Start

5. Check if you have the appropriate services running.

Start > run > services.msc [enter]

Browse down to these services and see if appropriate settings was set.
Logical disk manager - automatic
Logical disk manager administrative service - manual or automatic
Defrag with XP also needs the DCOM Server Process Launcher service running.

6. Your computer might have spyware or malware. Some viruses/malware are known to interrupt/disable system tools such as disc defragmenter. Try to download and run No Adware (download here), an anti-spyware and adware tool. You can also use Malwarebytes Anti-Malware tool or Smitfraudfix (how to use smitfraudfix?) to remove spywares or malwares that are running on your system.

7. Install and run third-party disk defragmenting software.

8. If all of the above possible solutions fail. I'm afraid you need to repair install your OS or as a last resort, reformat your computer (but yeah, I know, nobody want to do that just because of disk defragmenter).

DISK DEFRAGMENTER WON'T START


Try disk cleanup, do anything to improve memory, turn off everything except defrag. Check task manager, it'll show you what's using memory.

Error: ''Disk Defragmenter can't start''


I think there's a problem with ur hard disk file allocation/sectors. What you'll do is
  1. Press "Ctrl+R" --> type "cmd" --> hit Enter
  2. Now type "chkdsk /f"
  3. It will tell you that it will run the chkdsk the next time you restart your computer.
  4. Then do a restart. This will fix your problem.
For more detailed inforamtion about chdsk(Check Disk) will be at Chope
But then, windows defragger is not fast and not clean too.

I'll suggest you to use some free disk defragmenters like Auslogics.
It is way better than windows Defragger ;)

Disk defragmenter


Hi,
Does the disk need Defragmenting ??
if your concerned about having no-Backup device, i,d suggest either getting a DVD Writer, so that you can backup to DVD.
Or purchasing a memory card-reader with a 2-4 gig memory card, The other alternative, is to buy an external hard-drive.
Theres also a windows program, disk cleanup. which can help you cleanup unused files and folders.
Finally, you could re-install windows, or look for an alternative defragmenting program.
