Just wondering, is there any harm in defragging Windows 8.1 in safe mode. I know not to defrag too much, I defrag my computer only if it's more than 3% defragged (once about every 2 weeks). I know in earlier versions of Windows, you were able to defrag in safe mode which defragged files that were usually unable to be defragged in normal windows. Just wondering if that it would be harmful to defrag Win 8.1 in safe mode.
