What’s the difference between defragmenting a hard drive and optimizing it in Windows 8?
I’m curious; in Windows 8 there isn’t an option to defrag a hard drive, but there is one for “optimizing it” which, by default runs every week. This is the same schedule I had for defragmentation in Windows 7, if memory serves. Did Microsoft just change the name from defragmenting to optimizing for Windows 8/8.1, or does optimization mean something else?
