It cannot be scheduled. If you need to schedule disk defragmentation,
use the Defrag.exe command line tool. For additional information
about using the command line Defrag.exe tool, click the following

There are two defrag tools in XP.

dfrg.msc is 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 schedule.

Yes it can be scheduled, and for all hard disks, as well. <G>
