    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.

    Hello John,

    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.

    Hello FerchogtX,

    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.
