Real time defrag

Does real time defrag run all the time in the background?  Where can I go to find out more about it?

Re: Real time defrag

Yes and no.

My understanding of real time defrag is that it runs in the background whenever it is needed.

At a certain point, the disk is defragmented so it would not then keep running or defragmenting (although it would ideally be available should a file become fragmented).

Here is a link for more info on this:


If this is done correctly, there would be no resource hit on the computer while real time defrag was running; it would be truly transparent, as described in the article above.
