  • Question

  • Windows 2008 R2 SP1.

    On my Servers the Defrag Scheduled Task is scheduled to run on Wednesday's at 1:00am, however if you look at it in server manager it runs at anytime but 1:00am, I've seen run times of 2:30am, 1:25am and so on. does anyone know why it dosent run at 1:00am every wednesday?

    Thanks

  • Hello,


    That’s normal. The defrag task does not always start at the scheduled time exactly. Sometimes earlier and sometimes delayed.


    Thanks

  • Do you know if there is any supporting documentation about that ? I need something to give to management.

    Thanks

  • Hello,


    Sorry, I have no documents to support this. The below picture is the task history of DiskDefrag on test machine running Windows 2008 R2. As you can see, it’s scheduled to run at 1:00 every Wednesday. But the task history shows that it starts some time later.
