Defrag v1.02 shutdown doesn't work

Recommended Posts

  • 2 weeks later...

Same problem detected on my side. Shutdown feature of SmartDefrag v1.02 worked correctly all the time until I.....


1) reinstalled my old WinXP system after couple years from the scratch (by formatting HDD disk, inserting original WinXP SP2 installation disk into CD-ROM drive and installing WinXP on my formatted disk);

2) I downloaded all patches of WinXP after their installation from Inet using "Microsoft Update" option;

3) I downloaded WinXP SP3 via "Microdoft update" option;

4) I installed SmartDefrag v1.02;

5) and now I planned "Shut Down" option after defrag (with option "Optimize & defrag"). But shutdown never happens. :(


I hope those little steps written above can help developers with solving of SHUTDOWN problem detected by us.

My OS is WinXP Home Edition SP2, 32bit, patched by MicrosoftUpdate process to SP3.






PS: another hint: unfortunatelly my harddisks were configured in my PC following way: WinXP HDD1 (with logical disk marked as "C:\") on SATA4, new HDD2 with data only (detected by my older WinXP installation as logical disk "F:\) on SATA1.


Thanks to that situation (C:\ on SATA4 and F:\ on SATA1) after SATA4 reformatting and installing new WinXP from the scratch there, installation WinXP procedure detected and configured for me following mix of OS installation:


C:\ on SATA1 (without x:\WINDOWS, i.e. WinXP installed) where I have only data, not WinXP installed;

D:\ on SATA4, where WinXP was installed.


So, as result, I have now WinXP installed in "D:\Windows" !!!!


But this situation is handled by SmartDefrag correctly I suppose. Besides SmartDefrag still tries to format "C:\" logical drive first, where I dont have WinXP/OS installed! This is small mistake? I hope you are not expecting from users to have their OS installed in "C:\" logical drive always, developers. ;)
