Hello,

In older Windows OS's, I remember you had the "Maintenance Wizard" that let you do a disk cleanup, scandisk, and a defrag all on a regular schedule, and 100% automated (no intervention).

How do I accomplish this in XP-Pro SP2? I tried to put the "dfrg.exe" in the Scheduled Tasks, and it opens it, but it requires user input to actually start defragging (you still have to manually click the "defrag" button, or it won't do anything). Does it involve the Command Prompt?

Thanks

Microsoft thinks you can do it: Schedule Defrag in XP

That should do! Can you do the same thing with Disk Cleanup? The "chkdsk" will auto run and defrag the system drive all by itself, so that is already cool.

Thanks!

Don't know about disk clean-up, I use a thing called TempClean that does the same function. I just let it run at boot-up, which happens once or twice a week.

Could you tell me the link to download TempClean and is it freeware? Thanks in advance.
