The Windows 2000 Disk Defragmenter tool does not provide support for command-line parameters or switches to automate the disk defragmentation process.


Windows 2000 contains a limited version of Executive Software Disk Defragmenter. This limitation prevents the scheduling of disk defragmentation.

If you need to automate the disk defragmentation process, obtain a third-party disk defragmenter tool.
