View Full Version : How to defrag E when C comes up

I am sure there is an easy answer to this but I can not find it. When I defrag, the comp always says defragging C. I want to defrag E. (My hard drive is split into C and E.) How can I get it to defrag E?

Highlight E, then click on defragment. Then it should defrag e not c.

When you open the Disk defragmenter, you should be given the option to select which ever drive you want, by single clicking it to highlight, then click Defragement as normal, and it will defrag that drive.

Wainuitech:-When I go through the process to get to the defrag page and tell it to analyse or defrag it only says analising C, I can not find an option to enable me to choose differently.
Speedy:- If I click "my computer" I am not able to get a "defrag" option on the E drive when I highlight it.

I meant in disk defragmenter, not in my computer.

If the defragment now option doesnt appear, when u open my computer, then right mouse / properties on E.

Then go to tools / defragmentation, sounds like there's a prob with E.

What you should be seeing, and it doesn't matter which way you go through, either Start,all programs,accessories,system tools, disc defragmenter, or as speedy said you should be seeing the following Speedys Instructions (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Defrag_2.jpg) or Through the Menu (http://www.imagef1.net.nz/files/Defrag1211098882.jpg) Once you go as Speedy said, and click Defrag, you will then see the other window.

Note: the Drive E is only a pen drive, but a normal Hard Drive will be the same.
