    So far I have not any problems with Vista. I started to Defrag my desktop and there was no Defrag map and it has taken over 4 hours so far. Has anyone heard of any other similar defrag problems?:confused:

    I dislike the defrag interface however I just wrote a bat file to run defrag from a cmd prompt once per week. No problems with that at all. As for taking that long, I think the first defrag after install and all apps installed took approx 20min on a raid0 array. 4hr seems a little much however if there is not much room left on the disk and it is a single slower drive it might take a while. Have you tried running defrag from the cmd prompt? It tells you what the % of file fragmentation before it begins the actual defrag.

    Are you speaking of Vista? You can program a schedule with it. Once a week or what you will.

    If you right click the shortcut, you can also insert some parameters , for example, after the command line, you could put C: -c -v , this would give you a defrag of all the volumes in verbose mode. (Not the visual map you are used to seeing!) If you want to see a complete list of the suffixes, right click the command prompt and select "run as administrator" type defrag and the list will come up with a few examples.
