Windows 10: Optimize and Defrag Drives in Windows 10
Yeah. I defragged but it immediately reverted to 30% fragmented and then 60% upon analyze.
Than you for your help!
Hello again Shawn mate have tried this in several different ways but noting seems to work I always get a red error message I am guessing because it might be case sensitive?? or I have included spaces in spots and not in others.
Again not adding pics mate so cannot show you what I get.

You'll need to run the command in an elevated PowerShell instead.
There should be a space after "volume" in the command, and there shouldn't be a colon after the drive letter
Optimize-Volume -DriveLetter C -Analyze -Verbose
Thank you for the tutorial, Shawn.
One question though... if I use the /B modifier to defrag boot sector, will the defrag tool reboot teh system to do this or this task will be dome with the OS loaded?
I would personally not touch the boot sector.
I agree with Nick above, and wouldn't recommend to defrag the boot sector either. Usually, you'll only want to defrag the Windows drive and any data drives.
Well... if you say so, I'll leave it as it is.
Thank you guys
Glad we could help.
Sorry for the bump, but another question came to my mind.
In Windows 7, I used to have Tune Up Utilities 2012, and used their registry defrag to keep the registry trimmed, from time to time. No issues so far (it's a Windows 7 install from 2012, never reinstalled and working steady).
Taking in mind all the automated tasks Windows 10 has, I decided not to install Tuneup Utilities on my new laptop. But I have this doubt: I don't see problems so far by not defragging the registry, and I was wondering, Is it really nessesary? What exactly does defragging the registry does? Tuneup really defrags the registry or just "trims and cuts off unused space" as it claims it reduces the regystry size?
Thanks in advance for your answers
Defragging the registry is basically a method to remove wasted space in registry, and is fine to do.
Cleaning the registry is to remove what is believed to be invalid registry entries. Some software are more aggressive at this than others, and can often remove registry entries that it shouldn't causing issues. Personally, I would strongly recommend to never clean the registry for this reason. Especially since you will not notice any performance difference.

How to Change Schedule Settings for Optimize Drives in Windows 10
One of the best ways you can improve your PC's performance is by optimizing the drive. Windows includes features to help optimize the different types of drives that PCs use today....
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.
not only in windows 10 but in all windows i always thought that windows was automatically defragging my hard drives and then i turn around and just decided to check with a 3rd party defrag (because my pc boots slow) and theres 65gb of fragmented...
Anyone having trouble with Build 10041 hiding Drives?
I downloade & installed the trial version of O&O Defragmenter tool. I started a defrag last night at midnight setting it to do a 'Complete/Modfied' which I read is the best drag which will give you a faster boot time (which is what i want). it has...
