I am trying to defrag all drives on a windows 2003 server box. When I try to run the script below it does not work. Can anyone recomend a new script or how to fix this one?
'Defrags all drives
 
Const LogFile = "f:\log\Defrag.log"
 
Const DriveTypeRemovable = 1
Const DriveTypeFixed = 2
Const DriveTypeNetwork = 3
Const DriveTypeCDROM = 4
Const DriveTypeRAMDisk = 5
 
Set FSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set Drives = FSO.Drives
 
For each Drive in Drives
 if Drive.DriveType = 2 then
  RunCmd Drive
 end if
Next
 
Sub RunCmd(DriveString)
Set WshShell = WScript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
RunString = "%comspec% /c echo " & WeekDayName(WeekDay(Now), True) & " " & Now & " " & DriveString
Return = WshShell.Run(RunString & " >> " & LogFile & " 2>&1", 0, TRUE)
RunString = "%comspec% /c %WINDIR%\System32\Defrag.exe " & DriveString & " -f"
Return = WshShell.Run(RunString & " >> " & LogFile & " 2>&1", 0, TRUE)
Set WshShell = Nothing
End Sub
