When is the best time to defragment a hardly-used hard drive on a Windows Server 2003? This is a file server which has files that are written and deleted for many times in a week and is accessed by around 25 users. Is there an alert when the hard fragmentation is reached?

Hello there Buddy!

Once you square measure employing a digital computer, being accessed by twenty five users each day, adding and removing files from it from totally different users day by day can fragment your disk drive in time. Choosing the most effective time for defragmentation isn't supported. However, long before consecutive defragmentation however, rather supported how briskly your disk drive fragments. Currently, you're spoken language that twenty five users logs on everyday therefore it undoubtedly fragments in no time in addition.
 
Try to check your disk drive for fragmentation at least once per week to visualize if the defragmenter recommends a defragmentation or not. And through this you may have a concept the span of days/weeks the hard disk is heavily fragmented. Manual fragmentation is ok. However, takes lots of your time. Therefore, it's best to schedule the defragmentation once you’re asleep or the digital computer isn't getting used.
Therefore, I recommend you run the regular task on your Windows 2003 system. This may mechanically defrag your system in keeping with the time that you simply set (preferred at the dark time). Make certain you allow the system on-line throughout the regular time.
 
Open panel, click regular Tasks.
Click Add regular Task.
On the regular Task Wizard dialog, click Next.
Click Browse and head to windows'system32 folder. Choose defrag.exe and click on Open.
In the regular Task Wizard dialog, type, A name for the regular task
Under Perform this task, choose however usually you would like Disk Defragmenter to run. Click Next.
Set the time at that you would like the Disk Defragmenter regular task to run.
 
After you finished putting in place, you don’t get to worry concerning disk fragmentation once more.
 
Good Luck!

We defragment a hardly-used hard drive to improve system performance. When a hard drive is used by multiple person, it does not work properly.
 
The file location does not remain the same. You will find your hard drive working slow. When you find that problem, you have to defragment a hardly-used hard drive to improve system performance. You will get an silent alert when the hard fragmentation is reached.

You can use a different defragmentation tools that have central management consoles so that you can manage your tools, report on fragmentation levels and monitor systems.These tools can start defragmentation based on a scheduled fragmentation threshold level and it is tool dependent.They can also provide reporting on how things are going on the systems you monitor.Basic fragmentation does not defragment page files, you can schedule defragmentation on Task schedule.You don't need to wait for hard disk drive to be hardly used before defragging it.Yo need to maintain specific defragmentation period t maintain your computer speed.

Goodluck,

Dear,

As you your hard drive is used by 25 users it will gradually become slow and when the hard fragments is reached you will receive an alert.Disk Defragmenter rearranges fragmented data so your hard disk can work more efficiently. Disk Defragmenter runs on a schedule, but you can also defragment your hard disk manually.As your hard drive is hardly used,I would suggest you to Defragment your hard drive twice in a week.

Best Regards,
Zac
