  • Defragmenting hard drive on Windows Server 2003

    When does a hard drive on a hardly used Windows 2003 server need to be de-fragmented? The server is a file server and has files written and removed from it several times a week and is accessed by ~25 users. Can we set an alert when we hit a hard fragmentation level?
