Hi JM,

 

The default setting is to check the drive once a month, at least that's what it was on my Windows 10 Pro system using a solid state drive, but it can be changed to weekly or turned off.

 

To check / change the defrag settings open File Explorer and highlight your OS drive.

 

Open the drive's properties and, control + tab to the, Tools, page.

 

Tab to, optimize and defrag... button, and press the spacebar.  You'll find a list of drives and their status will be reported if you arrow from drive to drive

 

You tab to find more options like analyze, optimize, schedule on or off, frequency of optimizing / defragging.  In order to get to scheduling / frequency settings you have to spacebar the, change settings button.

 

I know I'm missing a thing or 2, but to see what is there go into the drive properties and take a look around on the Tools page / tab.

 

 

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.

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, 

 

Al   ? Which one comes first.

I do not know about keeping the cursor from moving.  I don’t think I’ve experienced that unless I closed the message.

 

As for having it not turn into table mode, my guess is it could have been a table but Jaws wasn’t indicating that when you were reading.

Tables only show up in HTML format I think.

I guess you could set Outlook to compose in plain text; something I personally do not like because links and such can get more easily messed up.

Subject: cursor moves back to top of email

 

Hello,

I’m using most recent versions of Windows10, Outlook2016 and Jaws2021. I will be reading an email and then for some reason I need to flip to another window. When I come back to the open email my cursor is at the top of the email. In the past I use to press control R to act like I’m replying to it. I then move down to the original email and my cursor will remain in that particular spot when I flip to another window and come back. Yet in a particular email the text in the original email turns into a table. First of all is there a way I can setup Jaws so the cursor doesn’t move up to the top when I leave the open email going to a different window? Or if I do a reply the original email doesn’t turn into table format?

Thanks,

Kevin

Hello there:
 
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.

Yeah, I'm investigating to see if my Intel NUC 5 PPYH can also take an M.2 SSD, maybe I can get a small one in terms of GB to benefit from faster boot ups and keep the SATA inside too.

Hi Glenn,

 

You’re right on target with what your saying. I put my OS on the SSD for faster boot ups  and CPU operations and everything on the HDD. It is almost impossible to recover files on a SSd. So I’d rather losing my OS than important files. Besides, a HDD usually shows signs that it is failing; therefore, you can replace it before that happens, hopefully?

If folks are really concerned about writing to their SSD too much, you might consider turning off hibernation, which writes to the SSD/HD whenever your computer hibernates.

Also, you might set your swap file to a fixed size, so the page file isn't constantly changing size.

And if windows still lets you, if you have a secondary drive in your computer, put your pagefile.sys file on the second internal HD drive, so windows isn't constantly writing on the SSD.

You can move your commonly used folders like downloads and documents to a secondary HDD.

There is also a windows feature that I have never used, called super fetch.

If you disable that, it should also help save your SSD from too much writing.

Yeah, I only reboot mine when it starts stumbling from being on too long, like after a couple months.
I think the same is true for mechanical drives, constant rebooting, with the spinning up and down is hard on them.
I've never had a mechanical HDD die on me, and I never turn them off.
On one of my laptops, I put in a SATA disk drive adapter, and it holds two CF cards.
So that laptop has 64 GB of SSD, using the two CF cards inside.
If I can find some 64 GB CF cards at a decent price, I may swap them out with the 32 GB CF cards.
I may see if I can get an adapter that takes USB drives, I have a couple 128 GB USB thumb drives.
The nice thing about a desktop system is that you can make your own hybrid system.
You can get a relatively small SSD for installing programs and you really wouldn't need more than 32 GB, and you can have a mechanical drive inside as well for your downloads and documents folders, and perhaps your swap file too.

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.

As I stated, don't be scared of it, it's not a big deal if it happens a few times.

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, 

 

Al   ? Which one comes first.

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.

well, among the issue about JAWS not speaking automatically, he did say "When I go and start narrator it don't start." which led me to think that the sound card had been accidentally or intentionally muted. then he could investigate the issue further if it is necessary.

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.

Amir, do you hear any sound at all, such as when Windows starts up? if not, the sound card may simply be muted.

to unmute:

press Windows+r, type sndvol and press enter.
press tab, home key, and page down twice.
press tab again and press spacebar.
JAWS should start speaking if the sound card had been muted.

I’m now getting to learn Microsoft Teams. Are there scripts, special plugins or anything regarding using Teams that could help me? Right now, it seems that a lot of tab stops do not get read. I’m going to look through the JAWS help to see if I can find anything pertinent to using JAWS2021, but any advise would be greatly appreciated.
