Default Remember doing Defragging? Update News for W10

1 query that We have not seen since Windows 10 rolled out is What happened to Defrag ? . Well the Good News is MS have got on top of that Housekeeping Task With the scheduling in the Background Running the Optimization weekly (default) Unwise to disable this feature as the Hard drive will Slow down over a Few weeks/months and eventually stall

In fact I have never done a Manual defrag since coming up from Windows 7

The Feature is still there KW: Defrag or Optimization on the Control Panel

Found under Administrative Tools on Windows 10 in the Control Panel.

Like you, I cannot remember the last time I carried out a disc defrag.

If you use SSDs, you should never defrag. In fact MS disables defrag and replaces it with TRIM if an SSD is fitted and this is also run automatically on a weekly basis.

I always manually do mine once a month depending upon how fragmented it is.

I use the elevated cmd defrag /c which does exactly the same as the scheduled one.

Just using laptops, they are never left on overnight and it would be inconvenient to run a scheduled one during the day.
