Is it optimal to disable Windows built-in defrag if i use Defraggler?

Recommended Posts

optimal?, Yes, why would you want 2 defraggers running on the same drive? :)

As a "not at all, computer savvy", I'm always afraid of getting in some sort of trouble. I've been using the free CCleaner version for years, and I was using the Windows <scheduled> Defragmenter. 

 

Now that I've bought the CCleaner Pro Plus, (comes with all the trimmings :lol: ) I transferred the Windows Defragmenter to my Documents, and disabled the <schedule>.

 

Should I not renew my Licensed Subscription, next year, for whatever reason, I can always reactivate Defragmenter.  

 

But yes, I have only one Defraggler running...CCleaner.

Maybe make some notes before installing? Cause common users will not know that built-in should be disabled.

 

it's not so much that it should be disabled, there just wouldn't be any point in having the Windows defragger run on a schedule if you are going to use DF.

 

I thought at one point in the past DF used to turn off the Windows scheduled defrag process but I'm not sure now since getting a SSD a few years back.

can`t you ask developers about it directly?

 

A bit of a late reply!

 

Moderators on here are all volunteers, the developers do not converse with us directly.

I'm not sure what you are chasing?

 

Do you want to know if Windows Defragmenter does or should get disabled automatically when Defraggler is installed?

If you're using Defraggler only and not using Windows to optimise your disk at all then disabling the one built into Windows will allow Defraggler to operate without having to constantly undo what Windows does.

 

Actually it's like that with any defrag software they often do not complement each other at all and will only undo what each other have did since they each have their own algorithms.

just don't use Windows defrag, and turn it's default schedule of weekly.
