how to defrag network drive

Recommended Posts

Defraggler just added 45GB to my laptop hdd and I'm very happy about that.

 

I was looking around in the settings & menus for a way to defrag a network drive (on my home network) but could not find a way.

 

Is that possible?

 

Thanks.

Lately when I defrag in Win vista I've got a big chunk of red showing in the defrag box, and I'm getting the message that some files cannot be defragged, and it lists this as the folder/file that can't be defragged:

 

248 1.39 GB \Documents and Settings\kr\Local Settings\Application Data\Google\GoogleEarth\dbCache.dat

You cannot defrag a network drive because it's not possible to get physical access to the drive's file system.

The only way around this would be to run defragging software on the server machine via a remote desktop connection.
