    Can somebody please help?
    I want to schedule Auslogics defrag to optimise once a week using command line.
    http://www.auslogics.com/en/software/disk-defrag/command-line/

    In schedule I navigated to C:\PROGRA~2\Auslogics\DiskDefrag\cdefrag.exe and set it as the programme.
    In arguments I included -c -o (optmise local disk).
    It's not working. Anybody?

    Iangh,

    Get it working manually first, then schedule the batch file. Create a batch file and copy/paste these trial lines...

    Code:
    @echo off
    
    Path=C:\Program Files (x86)\Auslogics\DiskDefrag
    
    start "" cdefrag.exe C: -o
    Run the batch file as an Administrator. Does the batch file work?

    There's no way I would have come to close to figuring that!
    Cheers,
