    From what I could see when I did that, it really didn't do anything. There is still no C: drive located in the Optimization and Defragment panel.

    You can always just open command prompt (not sure if it has to be admin command prompt or not) and run the defrag command:

    Microsoft Drive Optimizer
    Copyright (c) 2013 Microsoft Corp.

    Description:

    Optimizes and defragments files on local volumes to
    improve system performance.

    Syntax:

    defrag <volumes> | /C | /E <volumes> [<task(s)>] [/H] [/M [n] | [/U] [/V]] [/I n]

    Where <task(s)> is omitted (traditional defrag), or as follows:
    /A | [/D] [/K] [/L] | /O | /X

    Or, to track an operation already in progress on a volume:
    defrag <volume> /T

    Parameters:

    Value Description

    /A Perform analysis on the specified volumes.

    /C Perform the operation on all volumes.

    /D Perform traditional defrag (this is the default).

    /E Perform the operation on all volumes except those specified.

    /G Optimize the storage tiers on the specified volumes.

    /H Run the operation at normal priority (default is low).

    /I n Tier optimization would run for at most n seconds on each volume.

    /K Perform slab consolidation on the specified volumes.

    /L Perform retrim on the specified volumes.

    /M [n] Run the operation on each volume in parallel in the background.
    At most n threads optimize the storage tiers in parallel.

    /O Perform the proper optimization for each media type.

    /T Track an operation already in progress on the specified volume.

    /U Print the progress of the operation on the screen.

    /V Print verbose output containing the fragmentation statistics.

    /X Perform free space consolidation on the specified volumes.

    Examples:

    defrag C: /U /V
    defrag C: D: /M
    defrag C:\mountpoint /A /U
    defrag /C /H /V

    But I think there is a problem with the drive. Just ran a chkdsk. I am not sure if there were any problems reported or not. I like having the C: drive show up the Optimization panel.

    After I ran the chdsk, it is acting strange. It's freezing up.
