I recall from a few years back that the Windows defragmenter rearranges files differently than other defragmenters.

That may be what is happening here.

 

Suggest you check to see if Windows Automatic Defragmenter is scheduled to run or not in the Task Scheduler.

  1. Open Task Scheduler by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33_818, clicking Control Panel, clicking System and Security, clicking Administrative Tools, and then double-clicking Task Scheduler. 18abb370-ac1e-4b6b-b663-e028a75bf05b_48. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.

I have the same problem on my other computer which is running windows 7 home premium SP1.

 

That pretty much guarantees that it's something you have installed on both machines.

  2.  

I disabled the windows automatic defragmenter yesterday.What to do ?

Enable it?

 

 

That pretty much guarantees that it's something you have installed on both machines.

What software i have install in my windows 8 and windows 7 i have install also in my old windows xp.But windows xp has not that problem,so i do not think that there is a software that cause the problem.

 

 

 

Also my computer is malware-free.

XP might not react to it in the same way.

I've been fixing computers for a long long time and I've never heard of the problem you have and you have it on two of your machines.

For sure, it's something you have installed on both machines, voluntarily or not..There's just no two ways about it.

So you disabled Windows defragmenter yesterday. I suggest you stop using other defragmenters. Just reenable

the Windows one and be done with it.

On both machines at the same time?

A hardware problem that I've never heard of?

I don't think so.

I'm not trying to impose my opinion on you.

I'm just telling it to you, like I see it.

Let's look at this mathematically.

I'm convinced that it's software that you have on both machines.

Buddie215 is prettty convinced that the slimware(?) program you are using, is less than ideal, and you have it on both machines.

To me, that adds up to removing it. It's not as if you can't reinstall it later on.

The caveat is that it's possible that removing it won't fix your problem, if it has caused permanent damage.

Anyhow, it's certainly worth a try, isn't it?

I uninstalled and reinstall ESET and is working now.My system is running better now but still my problem remains.My hdd was 4% fragmented and the free storage was 366 GB.I defraged it with the windows built-in defragmenter to see if the program has fixed my problem  but instead of be defragmented my hdd is more fragmented and now 363 GB are free.

What is my next step?

Can you help me?
