Hello. I just updated my windows 8 to 8.1 a few days ago and now when I try to optimize the C drive it just analize it and then stops. It says that the drive is 10% fragmented. In windows 8, I always optimized it without any problem. What can I do ?

Need some more info....

Such as what kind of drive? Meaning SSD or Mech?

Raid / AHCI / IDE or what?

Chat chipset on the motherboard or perhaps motherboard model?


TBH seems like a driver issue.

So what happens, i mean does it give errors or something?

It's a mech sata drive. I have 3 partitions, tried with a different one it optimized it without problems, but when I try with the C one it just analize and then stops as if I had clicked the analize button instead the optimize one.

You might try forcing the defragmentation. Here is a link with more information. Chose the FORCE commando. It's a site about XP, but that should not make any difference now.

Microsoft Corporation

Make sure you start the commandprompt as an administrator!


Please let me know if this works.
