Sure, but why do it if there’s 0 benefit, and even if it’s slightly detrimental. It’s just a waste of time and resources, and if the oS itself doesn’t provide for it…that’s a pretty good indication.

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).

And 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.

Albert,

You will always want to do a disk cleanup first, then do a defrag.

The disk cleanup will make space that the defrag will write data onto to make a tighter usage of the disk.

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,

If you hear the sound, it must be some of the individual volume controls that have been lowered. If I could do a JAWS tandem with you, I believe I could find out what's wrong.

Hi, Mario. I don't think this is the problem. When JAWS starts, one of the things it does at startup is to unmute the sound card to which JAWS is set.
JAWS also raises the volume enough so that JAWS may be heard, making it possible to navigate to the volume settings, and raise it further.

Hi, Amir. If you type Windows key plus R for the Run Dialog, and type JAWS2021 into that field, and it comes up, it's not JAWS and the sound card. It's more likely that either the options in JAWS Options>Basic>Automatically start JAWS are not configured correctly, or you may need a JAWS repair.

 

 

Another thing that has worked for some users is the following,

 

If you type shell:startup into the run dialog, you will get access to your user account's startup folder.

 

Copy the JAWS shortcut from your desktop into the folder which opens after you type the above command. After this, JAWS should start at login.

Well, have you tried bringing up your JAWS through the search edit field when you open the Start Menu?

 

If you haven’t tried that, press Control + Escape and type jaws 2021 and see if you get it to come up.

 

Then use Insert + J or what is now called the JAWS key + J and open the Options menu, select the Basic setting and tab to Automatically Start JAWS button and open it with either enter or spacebar.

 

Go through this using the tab and make your necessary change/selection and be sure to select Always.

 

Tab to OK and then press ALT + F4 to close.

Start JAWS after logon for all users check box‑ checked‑

If so, you may have a sound card issue so you could go to the sound settings, and in there somewhere is a trouble shoot problems with the sound card.

moderated Fw: Question regarding either of these options.

Glenn / Lenny
 

Hi,
I would not lose any sleep over having defragged an SSD, it won't break it if you do that, the truth is, that SSD drives are fast enough that you won't get any benefit from doing that, and your SSD drive has many write cycles to it, but they are indeed limited, so a few defrags won't hurt and may not help.
But if you have deleted a lot of really really large files, it may help on rare occasions.
Just don't be scared if you do this, thinking that it would help and worried that it may hurt the drive, it likely didn't hurt anything.
Here is how it is described by Crucial.com, who sells disk drives:

Should You Defrag an SSD?
 
If you’ve ever owned a traditional hard drive, you have probably defragged it at some point along the way. This is because defragging a hard drive is necessary
due to the way it is built. In recent years, many people have been replacing their HDD with an SSD due to the impressive
technology
 and additional
benefits.
Those who are used to defragging their hard drives may wonder if it is necessary to defrag an SSD. We answer that question below.
 
Should I defrag my SSD?
 
The short answer is this: you don't have to defrag an SSD.
 
To understand why, we first need to look at the purpose of defragmenting a drive. Defragging ensures that large files are stored in one continuous area
of a hard disk drive so that the file can be read in one go. Mechanical drives have a relatively long seek time of approximately 15ms, so every time a
file is fragmented you lose 15ms finding the next one. This really adds up when reading lots of different files split into lots of different fragments.
However, this isn't an issue with SSDs because the seek time are about 0.1ms. You won’t really notice the benefit of defragged files — which means there
is no performance advantage to defragging an SSD.
 
SSDs move data that's already on your disk to other places on your disk, often sticking it at a temporary position first. That's what gives defragmenting
a disadvantage for SSD users. You’re writing data you already have, which uses up some of the NAND's limited rewrite capability. So, you get no performance
advantage whatsoever, but you are using up some of the limited rewrite capability.
 
To summarize, do not defrag an SSD
 
The answer is short and simple — do not defrag a solid state drive. At best it won't do anything, at worst it does nothing for your performance and you
will use up write cycles. If you have done it a few times, it isn't going to cause you much trouble or harm your SSD. You just don’t want this to be a
scheduled, weekly type thing that takes away from the finite number of SSD rewrites. There are other ways to
clean up and increase speed
 on your computer. There are even reasons for
formatting an SSD,
encrypting SSDs,
and ways to
increase storage space on a SSD.
They all serve a purpose — there just isn’t a reason to defrag an SSD.

There are a couple of ways you can determine what kind of local drive is inside your computer.  If it contains a hard drive, you should be able to feel or hear it spinning when you place your hand or ear on the enclosure.  If it contains an SSD, there will be no mechanical noise of any kind because there is no motor or cooling fan.  You could also check the properties of your local drive by focusing on it on the desktop and pressing alt-enter to bring up the properties page.  Sometimes, you can tell from the properties whether the drive is an HD or SSD.  But if you want to be absolutely certain what type of drive your computer has, download and install a free utility called Belarc Advisor that will create a profile of your computer and provide the model number and other information about its local drive, which should be helpful:

He knows his business really well, so I am taking his word on that.

Hi, Albert. As far as I know, these maintenance procedures must be done manually, unless you schedule them through the task scheduler. If it were me, I would do the disk cleanup, which would delete any unneeded files before defragging. This would result in a tighter defrag. I have also heard that it is unnecessary, and sometimes detrimental to perform a defrag on a SSD drive.

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,

Hi, John.

 

Method 1 of 4

 

Check via Task Manager

Step 1: Open the Task Manager either by using Ctrl + Shift + Esc keys, or right-clicking on the taskbar and then clicking Task Manager option.

Step 2: Switch to the full mode if it opens in small view.

Step 3: Under the Performance tab, click on the disk on the left side to know the actual name of the drive on the right side. The name usually indicates the type of the drive (SSD or HDD).

If your PC has more than one internal drive, you will have to click on all of them (on the left-side) one after another to know their properties.

 

Method 2 of 4

Check if your PC has SSD via Disk Management

Step 1: Right-click on the Start button on the taskbar and then click Disk Management option to open its window.

Step 2: On the left side (as shown in the picture below) of the window, you can see all internal and external drives currently connected to your PC. To know if a drive is HDD or SSD, right-click on it and then click Properties.

Step 3: The General tab displays the actual name of the drive which usually indicates what kind of drive (SSD or HDD) it is.

 

Method 3 of 4

Check if your PC has SSD using File Explorer

Step 1: Open the File Explorer and navigate to This PC.

Step 2: Right-click on a partition drive and then click Properties to open its properties dialog. Note that if you have more than one physical drive, you need to make sure that you are right-clicking on a drive that belongs to the physical drive that you want to know whether it’s SSD or HDD.

Step 3: Under the Hardware tab, you can see if your PC has SSD or HDD.

If your PC has more than one drive, the Hardware tab lists all drives and highlights only the physical drive where your currently selected partition drive

is located.

 

Method 4 of 4

Check your PC has SSD via Device Manager

Step 1: Open the Device Manager by right-clicking on the Start button on the taskbar and then clicking on the Device Manager option.

Step 2: In the Device Manager window, expand Disk drives tree to see the name of the drive which also includes the type of the drive (SSD or HDD).

Hello:

Is there a way to tell if you have a SSD drive?

 

Thanks in advance,
