You can schedule Defraggler to run once, daily, weekly, monthly, or on boot-up for an Endpoint, group, or Network.

If possible, schedule Defraggler to run in that Endpoint’s off-hours (for example, in the evening, off-shift, or on the weekends, depending on the work schedule).

Scheduling Defraggler

  1. In the Network Tree, right-click an Endpoint, Group, or Network, then point to Defraggler and select Settings.
  2. In the Defraggler settings window, select Enable scheduled defrag.
  3. Select the frequency to run Defraggler, and specify any additional settings.
  4. Select OK.

For scheduled defragmentation, the Task Scheduler service must be running on the  Endpoint.
