Defrag RRS feed

  • Question

  • My HP notebook has two partitions. One for the OS and the other for the rebuild ISO.

    I've made DVD's from that iso using HP's tool but hesitant on ditching the partition.  :-\

    Can the defrag section be configured so it doesn't try to defrag the rebuild partition?

  • The recovery partition is usually not visible to the operating system therefore most likely it won't be defragged. Unless you have a serious need for an extra gb or so of storage I suggest leaving the recovery partition in place.

  • The log states "Not yet started" on the drive with the ISO.

    It's a standard partition with the recovery file.

    Thanks for the reply.

  • I believe I found a fix.

    Within Disk Mangement, I removed the drive letter from the partition with the system rebuild ISO. That way, it doesn't show up.

    If I need it, I just give it a letter and go.
