:hello:  How do I turn on and off Windows 7 defrag and optimization at boot time? Is there an option for periodicity? I don´t want to let HDD running at 100 pct for hours. How do you choose optimization of the system files too? And can I run it not only on drive C:?

Go to computer. Right click on any of harddrives --> Properties --> Tools --> Defragment Now --> after window of defragmenter will appear Configure Schedule

:hello:  Thanks. Do you know how to also optmize HDD's by moving system files to the fastest area of the HDD? I wanna do it at boot time, without schedule and force the optimization of the unmoveable files to those fastest areas. Do you know the command line options?

You can run disk defrangementer whenever you want and I would recommend you doing it time to time. About optimizing files, I am not sure if it can be done with specific command line options in Windows native defragmenter, but I heard that windows 7 defragmenter is pretty good and can optimize files to a degree. There are also third party options that may be able to do a better job but they are not typically free.
