    Windows 10 not showing second partition in defrag window


    It seems that only one partition +system reserved are showed. Any idea why?

    In practical terms the hidden/system/inaccessible partitions are not intended to be used so defragging is not necessary.

    How big was the partition? Does it still show in Disk Management?

    Has a drive letter been assigned to it in Disk Management?

    Yep. Everything was working OK until the cumulative update from today.

    Please post a screenshot when you run
    diskmgmt.msc from a command prompt

    and what your defrag program (which?) is showing.
    Thanks

    I've been using the default defragmentation program.

    But after 2-3 restarts it's ok. For one reason or another.

    Thanks anyway!
