The built-in disk defragmenter for w2k and XP is a cut down version of Executive Software's Diskeeper package.  This cut-down version cannot be scheduled.  Our enterprise deployed the full version of Diskeeper, which offers fully functional schedule features, and others features.  Additional functionality depends on the version you purchased.

Thanks for the points.  Sorry there isn't an answer which doesn't require a third party product :(  That has caused me no - end of grief in the past too.

Cheers.
