How do I get Disk defragmenter to start up using " Schedule Tasks". I
want it to run automatically at certain times. Additionally I have a
partitioned drive so I want it to do both sections.

Thank you
TS

Thank you for the help. Using the web page from Microsoft/Support it
seems to run it in a DOS window and gives the Analysis Report. Not
sure if it is actually running the defrag of the hard drive.

Any more advice ?

Thank you again

There are two defrag tools in XP.

dfrg.msc that's the pretty one that opens from
Start\All Programs\Accessories\System Tools.

defrag.exe the command line tool that runs in the command prompt.
defrag.exe is the one that you can scedule.
