First and foremost, Windows has a defrag utility built in. For the majority of users, this utility is an acceptable defrag. In newer versions of Windows it is two clicks to setting up a scheduled defrag using this Windows utility.
Click on Programs/Accessories/System Tools and Choose Disk Defragmenter
Choose to run on a schedule. Choose a schedule that works for you and then select the volumes to be defragmented. Hit OK and then close out. Make sure your PC is on for your scheduled defrag. That’s it. You are all set. I will talk about more advance defrag utilities in a subsequent post.
