Pause, sleep, resume question

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to pause a defrag job, put the computer to sleep, wake it later and continue the job without any potential problems?
And would doing so on the system drive make any difference?
I'm stuck in a small shed with a hot PC defragging a metre from my head in the middle of summer! Would be nice if I could pause while I sleep. :D

Simply click the Stop button to stop the defrag wherever it is up to, it will finish defragging what it is currently working on and then stop.
Files that are already defragged are already defragged.

Then start again when you are ready to defrag the rest.

That makes sense, thanks!
Only been using Defraggler for decades... :D
Always just let the big ones run right through before, never even thought to try this, Kicking myself.

TBH the quickest way is to only defrag the files that are fragmented rather than defragging the whole drive.

Run analyze and when it's finished click on 'View files'.
At the top left of the list (next to 'Filename') click on the box to tick all the files.
Then click 'Defrag Checked' to defragment the files.
