    Ok then easy one to Start. Ready Jak with the 8 ball?

    QOTD #1

    A Windows 2000 file server hosts home directories of several hundred users. Files are intensively written and deleted on the computer's disks, which causes fragmentation. You do not want to perform the defragmentation prematurely. Which of the following commands should you use to determine whether you should run the defragmentation utility on a particular disk?

    a. Defragment in Disk Defragmenter

    b. Check Now on the Tools tab in the disk's Properties page

    c. Analyze in Disk Defragmenter

    d. Defragment Now on the Tools tab in the disk's Properties page



    Answer tomorrow

    Answer C.

    Analyze does just that - determines if disk requires defragging, without carrying it out at the time.


    Or have I spoiled the punchline ? :oops:

    I'll go with the others and say C. BTW AJ...we need to teach you to do a proper poll. When you do the initial post, scroll down until you see the options for creating a poll. You'll always need to add one more option than you'll need and leave it blank, otherwise the last option doesn't get put up for some reason. Si could probably explain it, genius that he is.

    Another suggestion: How about a title for the thing. Something like: "Windows 2000 QOTD April 30th" or something similar...just to identify it by type and date.

    Gee...pushy, ain't I? :oops:

    @ Trip

    Tried that mate but the question was too big for the window. Only got half the question in before it stopped. You know how M$ phrase their questions. I wanted to phrase them in a similar way so that anyone who has not seen them will at least have a passing knowledge on how they work and how to read them.

    The next QOTD will be titled in a better way tomorrow, but thanks a lot.

    No worries, AJ. Sorry if I came off rude. :oops: I wonder if there's a way to increase the capacity to the question window? Si?

    Wow, the suspense was truly awesome waiting to see what you'd choose for an answer there, Flex. :eek:

    That could be a whole new attraction in itself...

    Answer time.

    Choice C is correct. To determine whether you should run disk defragmention without starting the defragmentation process, you should click Analyze in Disk Defragmenter. The physical structure of the files on a specific volume will be analized, and you will receive a colour diagram and a tabular report. Using this information, you can decide whether you should actually defragment that volume. The defragmant command in Disk Defragmanter also performs the same analysis, but you do not receive a tabular report; instead, defragmantation starts immediatly. The Check Now button on the Tools tab in the volumes Property page is used to start the programme that checks and can automatically correct certain types of Data Integrity problems. Clicking the Defragment Now button on the tools tab in the properties page only causes the Disk Defragmenter window to appear; neither analysis nor defragmentation will start until you click the approriate button in disk defragmenter.
