How many hours Disk Defragmenter takes to complete hard drive the first time

How many hours 697 gb -105 gb free ( HDD ) takes to defragged ?

It’s hard to tell. Usually, the Disk Defragmenter tool can take from several minutes to several hours to complete. It all depends on the size and the fragmentation needed on the drive.

Once you start the defragmentation process, you can continue to use Windows 10 normally.

(use windows 10 normally) that’s include playing games ? or just navigator ?

You can try. I’d assume is not going crazy using the device, and more activity the PC generates the longer will take for the tool to complete. Why don’t you leaving defragmenting before going to sleep?

Well i’m afraid that can take more than 10 hours , but ill give it a try . Thank you .

The capacity of your drive suggests that it may be an older model, and that usually means it’s slower than new ones. Based on past experience I would estimate between 3 to 4 hours.

Yes i defragmented hdd prev monday it takes 4:30 mins

So ~15-30 min
Depends on disk

mine 4.30 mins sounds fine .
