I used optimize on my PC HDD please help

Recommended Posts

(Full problem) My computer was being very slow, I initially though windows Update and stuff so I left it, but it continued for days,so I opened task manger and monitored in between my work, even for extended periods of time the disk usage(HDD) is always at >90%, no matter the number of tasks or the disk transfer rate. I read online that defragging would solve the issue, so I ran the windows defragger and the usage really went down. I also came across suggestions to use defraggler piriform(I always use ccleaner but I never knew this existed).so I thought I should use that too. 

(Please read this) Here I made a big mistake after analysing in piriform defraggler I also ran optimize, I later came across the defraggler doc which goes "optimize is for SSD". My computer uses HDD. What should I do now, it's been stuck at optimizing(83%). And my PC  disk usage is at 100% again. I am afraid my HDD will fail. Please tell me what should I do?. Should I cancel the optimize? and just run defrag?.

ADVICE FOR USING CCleaner'S REGISTRY INTEGRITY SECTION

DON'T JUST CLEAN EVERYTHING THAT'S CHECKED OFF.

Do your Registry Cleaning in small bits (at the very least Check-mark by Check-mark)

ALWAYS BACKUP THE ENTRY, YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT YOU'LL BREAK IF YOU DON'T.

CCLEANER, RECUVA, DEFRAGGLER AND SPECCY DOCUMENTATION CAN BE FOUND AT  https://support.piriform.com/hc/en-us and  https://www.ccleaner.com/docs
