At least since Windows 7, Defrag is turned on by
default. It is also set by default, to defragany Hard Disk Drive (HDD), once a
week. If a Solid State Drive (SSD), is detected, a procedure, called
"Retrimming", is occasionally performed. How often the retrimming process is
performed on any SSD drives, is not clear. I have 2 SSD Drives in 4 Desktop
systems. On what I call my main storage computer, the system drive, has not been
Retrimmed for 32 days, while Drive F, was retrimmed a week ago yesterday,
on 22nd March.

Windows 10 does do some automatic
defragging. How much, when, and so on, I’m not exactly sure. however I have
had this computer since 2017 and never needed to run the utility manually on
any of my hdds (they all show 100% not fragmented).
yes, as has been said, don’t defrag an SSD. Not even sure that Windows 10
native defragger will *let* you do that, though some third party
utilities might…just don’t do it.

Good afternoon everyone,
Does windows ten, have a utility built
into it that will automatically do both a disk defrag, and a disk cleanup on a
weekly schedule, or do you have too do it yourself? If not, which one do
you have too do first. In other words, should I do a disk defrag
first, and then do a disk cleanup second
Thanks in advance,
Al ? Which one comes
