Defrag takes Hours

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I started to defrag an external HDD (466 GB in size, 334 GB uses) that is connected via USB 2.0 to my PC.

After 12 hours (!!) 99% are done, but defrag is still not finished.

 

Is it normal, that a defrag takes such a long time?

Or is this a CCleaner Cloud specific problem (that it would be faster in Defraggler for Windows)?

 

Greetings

- Defragmenting an external HD is Always (much) slower.

- I let the program list the fragmented files and then let DF defragment those files only.

Hello,

 

secure deleting the free space on this external HDD via CCleaner Cloud also took 6 hours.

Is this an issue of CCleaner Cloud (would it be faster with CCleaner)?
