How to program automatic hard disk defragmentation in Windows XP - video tutorial

Hi friends, today's tutorial we will see how we can schedule an automatic defragmentation of the hard disk in Windows XP. If Windows Vista, Windows and Windows 7 8 this happens automatically in Windows XP you need to defragment your hard disk manually or schedule automatic defragmentation.
To program an automatic defragmentation of the hard disk we will use Scheduled Tasks and the defrag.exe file located in "C: \ Windows \ system32". In the tutorial we presented two methods to program a defragmentation. We can use the second method if we want to defragment several partitions / hard disks at the same time without having to program a defragmentation for each partition / hard disk. Basically for the second method we will create a file called "defragall.bat" in which we will write 2 commands and then we will program the running of this file which will take care of optimizing the existing hard disks or partitions in the computer. You can also use Scheduled Tasks in many other situations to schedule different tasks or programs to run.
What does defragmentation?
The process by which the operating system optimizes the layout of files on your hard drive so they can be accessed more quickly by operating system.
Windows will work better if you defragment your hard drive?
Definitely yes but we should not expect spectacular performance. However the difference will be noticeable when working on PC. The files will open quicker, apps as copying files will be faster.
How often you should defragment your hard drive?
It is helpful to defragment at least 2 times a month. If you know someone who download as many files, make moves / copying / deleting files frequently when you defragment each week.
There are cases where you should not use defragmentation?
Yes, if you own a SSD it is not necessary to make a defragmentation. Defragmentation is even contraindicated for SSDs especially if they have the technology TRIM
Towards the end, as sound and above on other Windows operating systems do not need to schedule automatic defragmentation because Windows Vista, and Windows 7 8 come by default set to make an automatic defragmentation of all partitions.
