I want to be able to use the code below to set a vbs to run in task scheduler to defrag all volumes regardless if the volume needs it or not. Will it work? Or is there other ways scripts to do it? I do not want to buy a third party product.
I have tested this seems to be working. I just need to verify that it defrags regardless if drive needs it or not.
strComputer = "."
Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:" _
    & "{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & strComputer & "\root\cimv2")
 
Set colVolumes = objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Volume")
 
For Each objVolume in colVolumes
     errResult = objVolume.Defrag()
Next

You can do this more easily with a batch script.

Paste the script below into a text file with a .cmd extension.  Running it will defrag all local drives.


@echo off
 
for /F "tokens=1" %%G in ('wmic logicaldisk get deviceid^,drivetype ^| find "3"') do (
 defrag %%G -f
)
