Windows can automatically defragment your hard for you once scheduled to do so.

  1. Open up the Start Menu and search for “Defragment and Optimize Drive”.
  2. Select Change Settings in the Bottom left hand side
  3. Check the box “Run on a schedule” and set the Frequency to weekly.

If the last run date is over a few weeks old we strongly recommend using the Analyze option and then Optimize if needed.
