new v2.01.239 - Idle Time defrag question...
Posted 22 December 2010 - 12:41 AM
My question is about the new "idle time" schedule option.
I see that you're using Windows Task Scheduler to implement this. Fine. The question is, what happens let's say, if the machine is idle for 3 hours, and DF starts to work, and then the user starts to use the machine again. Will DF just keep forging ahead or will it "pause" to allow the user to work comfortably and then resume when the machine becomes idle again?
Because if the task does not stop when the machine ceases to be idle, then it's not "really" an idle-time defrag now is it? thanks much for your response.

If other applications are hammering the CPU or resources Defraggler would have to until the system is in an idle state.

Once, Daily, Monthly, Idle etc. are triggers for the defrag, so they determine when Defraggler will be started. In the case of idle trigger, after the defrag is started, Defraggler will not stop/pause when computer activity increases. We may implement such feature in the feature though.

In XP, this can be done in the task's Settings tab.
