Defrag From the Command Line in XP

Windows Tip: Defrag From the Command Line in XP:

You can defrag XP from the command line for more options.

It's a good idea to defrag your hard drive on a regular basis.
You can set defrag to run from the command prompt in XP.

Make sure you have administrator access.

[Start] [Run] [cmd]

At the prompt, type "defrag" followed by the volume letter (c:), then one of these switches:

(a) to analyze your volume.

(f) to force the defrag even if your free space is low.

(v) to get a verbose output.

(b) to optimize your boot files to speed up your boot process.
