I wouldn't say entirely pointless. (I'm assuming) Windows will still analyze your drive(s) weekly, but it will decide whether a defrag is actually needed. Logically, if it analyzes 0% fragmentation in your drives, it doesn't need to defrag anything.
That is for HDD. You can't analyze on SSD. Even if it is only analyze the disks, it should update the last run time in Defrag and Optimize Disk. Mine was terminated unexpectedly.
for some reason I didn't notice that I hadn't put any space though in the previous command I did.
Yeah.

@SumTingWong Just in case it is something wrong with uninstallations of security products, download something like Search Everything (Downloads - voidtools) and search for keywords like "Bitdefender" and "Emsisoft" and delete all leftover folders/files. (I don't think this will fix your problem, but it is good practice.)
I already did that. Search Everything and Autoruns confirm nothing related to Bitdefender and Emsisoft except Emsisoft Emergency Kit.

Are you using a laptop? Could it be that the defrag task is terminating because your system isn't idling or AC-powered long enough? Aside from the commands mentioned by @yitworths, I don't know what the issue could be. I'm still defaulting to "use Tweaking.com repair" to fix the issue as a last resort. After that, if scheduled defrags are super important to you, I recommend a clean boot.

leftovers & data integrity violation ain't same. I think you should wait for a while to check whther the problem resurfaces or not & don't mess with your system too much. What did I mean by 'too much'? Don't mess with your system at all. I know you won't be that good boy:sneaky:. Then what should I say:rolleyes::unsure:?

I will wait til tomorrow to see if the disk optimization scheduler work or not. I set to daily now to check.

I change the schedule in Defrag and Optimize Disk to daily to see if it starts tomorrow. Do I have to be in idle for it to work?
Even if you schedule it as daily, it won't defrag or optimize unless it's need. So,make it weekly & wait for a month. If process gets terminated unexpectedly after a week, then post it again. Otherwise wait for a while. Please, don't get me wrong but you tend to rush things too much. What's you pc is it desktop or laptop? As root/ correctly pointed out. & if it is desktop, idle is not necessary.

I think I could've done a clean format on my PC in the time it took to read and try all of the fixes in this thread. :ROFLMAO:
I tried to comment in another thread but now I've forgotten which was that one. I just hope his problem is resolved. After clean installation you need time to tweak windows 10. So, somehow this thread is still a bit more useful than a clean installation in terms of time consumption.

If you're asking what I'm saying, in English I think it's clear, if you're asking what Illumination would think I can only say that I know he travels pretty light, a reset takes little time if you stay prepared.
Yes, you are clear. Yes he does. And yes, if prepared. :giggle: I am mostly prepared but I’d be screwed if I needed to clean install. Never done one. I have no experience downloading needed drivers, etc. though I’ve made a list of what I think I would need. Windows troubleshooter has bailed me out so far.

With the machine I'm on it needs no assistance from me it just pegs it but I'm sure there would be anomalies out there. It really doe's a great job with the reset, I direct it to keep my files and in less than an hour it's up and running, it syncs pretty much everything, if you have softs that you need to install than thats the downside, for me it's pretty painless, for others I get that it wouldn't be.

If none of your security apps causing the problem, then most probably you should do a clean install:emoji_innocent:.(As you've already done sfc & dism) btw, you may run a dism with a iso of your current os versiono_O:censored:. Nope, go for a clean install. If you have time, you may create an another account & schedule this task & monitor for another week.
