    @Slartybart; Thanks for that information. That's exactly how I'm now proceeding.

    Any idea when the ISO for v10122 will be released by MS?

    In Windows 10 I can find disk optimize by using the search engine in settings, and typing in: "Disk defrag and optimize". Or by right clicking the drive in question > Properties > Tools tab.
    But it doesn't show the folder location.
    I've searched all the Windows folders such as Win System, Accessories, etc. Can anyone please tell me where it's located?
    On a clean install (last night) of Win-10, x64, build 10130, I looked for the Defrag.exe program right where I expected to find it, , ,
    in C:\Windows\System32\Defrag.exe ,,,,, but it won't run. When I double click it, I get a window opening up and immediately closing. Hmmm!

    But, it's there, if you can get it to run. I even tried running it as Administrator, and even that didn't help.

    During Beta Testing, we really shouldn't need to Defrag anyway. Eh?

    Cheers mates!

    It's(the build) probably not there long enough to fragment. But an SSD should be optimized. If TRIM is turned on it won't matter though, you really don't need to manually run it(at least often).

    To check if it's turned on, in a Admin Command Prompt run fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify
    It will give you one of two results, either a 0 or a 1. A zero indicates that TRIM is enabled correctly, a one means that it is not. If you have a TRIM-compatible SSD, but find that Windows 10 hasn't enabled the command, you can easily do so by running this command:

    fsutil behavior set DisableDeleteNotify 0

    Yes, I'm quoting myself..... lol

    I went back and did some more investigating and I found that the Defrag program for Win-10 is NOT "Defrag.exe", but "dfrgui.exe"

    Maybe that will help!
    It's still at: C:\Windows\system32\dfrgui.exe

    Just right click on it, and 'Send to Desktop, creating a shortcut' and you'll have it handy when you want to run it, or just set up the scheduler to run it as often as you like.

    Enjoy!

    It took me a while to find it too. I was actually looking for the Admin tools GUI .exe file.
