I need to find out what switches need to be installed in the defrag script, or what syntax will allow me to put in a stop time.

We are currently using the program JKDefrag, the batch command is started from Windows Scheduled Task, but I've had no success finding a syntax that will allow me to put in a stop time (6AM). The code is below.

"AT 4:00 /every:su,m,t,w,th,f,s "C:\Windows\JKDefrag.exe" -example-

Edit to suit your needs

Time Format is 24 hour Military time

AT 12:00 /every:su,m,t,w,th,f,s "C:\Windows\JKDefrag.exe" (IT)

AT 18:00 /every:su,m,t,w,th,f "C:\Windows\JKDefrag.exe" (Servers)"



Any help would be appreciated.

I think you should use the SCHTASKS command instead.  You have the option to create and end a task.

Try this:


rem Remove the "rem" in front of the version AT that you want to run. I suggest testing with
rem the first to make sure it is what you want

rem The following will kill it gracefully asking for confirmation if there are unsaved changes
rem AT 06:00 /every:su,m,t,w,th,f "taskkill /IM JKDefrag.exe"

rem The following will kill it forcefully without asking for confirmation
rem AT 06:00 /every:su,m,t,w,th,f "taskkill /F JKDefrag.exe"
