    Hey All,

    How can I make Vista Defrag stop working? I don't like the fact that it works in the background, it is always "analyzing disks" whenever I open it. It has no progression bar.

    My question: Can I stop it? Can I disable it? Can I make it go away?

    MS, what exactly were you thinking making the defrag do this?

    Thanks in advance,


    Heeter

    Just uncheck the "Run on a schedule" box and close it. It won't run automatically once you do that. :)

    It has been "analyzing disks" since yesterday, though.

    Does it think that it needs to do all the mapped drives? Is that what is happening? I can't shut down this analyzing and I don't know how far it's gotten. Is it nearly done or is it frozen? No idea.

    I was going to do a defrag the other night and then it said it just ran the other night. I like the feature. I just have it setup when I am not around.

    does vista defrag consolidate space as well as files?
