Question 1: Can I defrag the drives protected by Safecode Defencecure?
Answer: Yes, but not recommended.
Question 2: Why not?
Answer: Defrag won’t do what you intended to do. Because Safecode Defencecure snapshots are transparent to Windows defragmenter, the defragmenter cannot read or alter data in Safecode Defencecure snapshots. So the defragmenter can only defrag the data in the current system. It will not be able to defrag data in snapshots.
Question 3: What if I defrag the drives protected by Safecode Defencecure anyway, would that crash the system?
Answer: No, it won’t. It would be a waste of time and disk space.
Question 4: How can I defrag the drives protected by Safecode Defencecure then?
Answer: Safecode Defencecure has a build-in snapshot defragmenter. It defrags the snapshots instead of the whole drive. It works in the background. It works in the knowledge of Safecode Defencecure snapshots, and it’s speedy.
Question 5: But I still want to defrag the drives using my defragmenter. How can I do it?
Answer: Turn off Safecode Defencecure protection, defrag the drives and then Enable Safecode Defencecure protection.
Question 6: I only have Safecode Defencecure protecting the system drive. Can I defrag the partitions and drives that Safecode Defencecure does NOT protect?
