Thread: Random,self-starting De-fragging

  1. #1
    My computer starts de-fragmenting itself for no reason and different times,and sometimes several times in a day.It does this even after I have recently defragged it.What causes this and how can I stop it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    perhaps you should check if defrag is in 'sheduled tasks'. if it is, remove it. (goto control panel)

    Sometimes a failing harddrive will do this.
    Best to backup your files just in case of complete failure.
