Thanks. I take it that optimize and defrag are used interchangeably in this context.

The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The realist adjusts his sails.

On the HP tablet, I selected drive C: and selected Properties. Under Properties I then selected Tools and selected the Optimize task. When that screen popped up, there was a setting to turn it ON or OFF. I had previously turned it OFF. After Hans' comment, I decided to turn it back on. Then it asked what frequency I wanted.. The default was weekly. I changed that to monthly and "OK'd" the way out.

If my tablet's 32GB eMMC card goes belly-up, I will go after Hans for damages. I have taken a snapshot of his advice to turn defrag back on... Just in case. :evilgrin:

I would have sent a snapshot of the page because it looked slightly different than my desktop set-up. Unfortunately, I am still playing with the HP unit and have yet to learn how to take screen snapshots. Getting used to a touch-screen only operation is one of the fun parts! :grin:
Regards,
Bob

Indeed.

That results in the same dialog as the one I described. Turning Optimization on should be OK.
Best wishes,
