Developer's Description

Runs from anywhere: You can place this program on a Jump drive and just run it from there. No installation is required, however currently it requires Windows XP. Defrags all hard disk drives: This includes all physical drives. Creates a Text Report which tracks results/errors: Report is created as monthly files (stored in %windir%). Errors are tracked also inside this report file. To view the report, either manually open up the program, and if there is a report available for the current month, the "Report" button will be enabled; click on that; or goto the windows folder and look for "DefragReport012007.txt", where 012007 is the month and year. Allows Switches to be passed to the program: Switches allow auto start, auto end, & removal of drives from the defrag. See below for more details.

Program is named Defrag.exe for easy identification: The Program closes the built in Windows XP Command line defrag.exe program when it is completed or manually stopped, using unique identification so it closes the correct program, and not itself. This is required so the program does not hang when prematurely terminated. Also the FAT32 and NTFS Windows Defrag programs which run in the background, are closed as well. Switches: To add a switch, first save the file somewhere it cannot be deleted by accident, such as in its own folder. Create a shortcut of the file then open that shortcut's properties. Add one of the following switches after the "Target" path. You could then just drag that Shortcut to the Start Up section on the Programs Menu, or add it to Task Scheduling (see website for more details on switches and scheduling). Terms: This is free software and we are not to be held responsible nor liable for damage from the use or misuse of this software.
