Hi,
Im getting quite annoyed at DfrgFat.exe running when im away from my system. Its causing my hard drives to click away like crazy and not only is it noisy, but i cant help think its doing them no good.
I believe its a defrag program but I dont have it scheduled to run in task scheduler, nor anywhere else to my knowledge.
Is it safe to leave it runnung and can i disable it from running automatically if i should decide to?
Thank you

Try the following steps:
Start->Run. Type cmd. Press Enter.
In the Command-Prompt Window, Type: defrag /REVERT. Press Enter.
(Note: There is a space between defrag and /REVERT).

"'defrag' is not recognised as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"

Hi,
Im getting quite annoyed at DfrgFat.exe running when im away from my system.


One of my pc's is doing the same thing and I can't figure out why its running on its own at times when the pc is idle. There is no scheduled event for a defrag I also catch wuauclt.exe running on its own sometimes but I have Automatic Updates turned off !
