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.

How can I defrag my Dell optiplex760?


How to Defrag a Dell Computer
1. Open the My Computer window. To do this on a Dell computer, click on the "Start" button at the bottom of the screen. Then, click "My Computer".
2. Choose the hard disk drive that you want to defrag. Locate the section entitled "Hard Disk Drives." In this section is a list of hard drives on the computer. For most Dell computers, the hard disk drive you will want to defrag is Local Disk (C:).
3. Right-click on the hard disk drive you want to defrag on the Dell computer. If you want to defrag your C: drive, then right-click on "Local Disk (C:)". A menu bar will appear.
4. Click on "Properties." "Properties" is the last option on the menu bar. This opens the Local Disk (C:) Properties window.
5. Click the "Tools" tab. The Tools tab is the second tab in the Local Disk (C:) Properties window. The tabs are located on the top of the window.
6. Click the "Defragment Now" button. The "Defragment Now" button is in the Defragmentation section of the window. This opens the Disk Defragmenter window.
7. Click to select the disk drive you want to defrag on a Dell computer and then click "Defragment." For most Dell computers, this will be (C:). After you click "Defragment," the Dell computer will first analyze the disk drive you selected and then beginning defragging the Dell computer.
8. Wait for the "Defragmentation is Complete" message. If you have not defragged a Dell computer in a long time, then the defragging process might take a while, even as long as an hour for very fragmented Dell computers. Allow the Dell computer to run the defrag until the process is completed. You will know that the Dell computer has completed the defrag process when the "Defragmentation is Complete" message appears.
9. View the defrag report and then close the window. If you want to view the defrag report, click "View Report." Otherwise, click "Close" to close the window.

Yes, if the the fragmentation was bad to begin with the Disk Defragmenter stops after some time. I've had some  customer's pc's in which i had to run it 3 times in a row to get it to a decent level.

Hp Pavilion a1620n, XP Edition. I Can't defrag my recovery drive.


Unfortunately you will need to do exactly what it states, which is free up some space. Defragging a drive requires there to be an ample amount of "swap space" available so that it can move files into that 15% of space while it rearragnes the placement of other files and puts them back in an order which will provide faster access to the files after the defrag is complete. being that it is your D: drive, can't you just move some files to your C: drive to make enough space for the defrag??

Please be sure to rate this solution.

Regards,

Joe

My Computer Wont Defrag


Best way to Defrag is to start up in Safe mode and run the Defrag program. Time to defrag depends on size of HD and free space.
Degragging in normal mode also enables your anti-virus software which I' ve found to interfere with defragging. Best of luck to you and I hope this solves your problem.

Hi!

Seen that before! microsofts defrag tool isent the best one if i may say so. If you have any programs running in the background it wont finnish, so you can either stop all running programs manualy and the defrag will finnish, OR you can Use another defrag tool,
Here are two:
O&O Defrag is one of the best, but its not free:

Auslogics Disk Defrag is a good toll and its free:

Now, make your chioce and enjoy a good defrag tool:)

Good luck

Tried a few defrag programs and some of the files won't defrag


Try using the free AusLogics Disk defrag program (http://auslogics-disk-defrag.en.softonic.com/) If that does not work, you can download a free trial of Perfect Disk Defrag at http://www.perfectdisk.com/home. This program allows you to not only defrag large files, but also consolidate free space, schedule when you want to defrag, and select the files you want to defrag. These are two of the better defrag programs out there. Auslogic also makes a good registry defrag located at http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/registry-defrag/download. They all work great and are good to have. I use them.
