I need a VBS script to defragment the hard drive/partitions on Window 2003 and 2008 including R2 server.

I need to be able to specify the drives/partition e.g. C: D: etc...

Can someone help me out?

You can schedule the following DOS commands.  You do not necessarily need to use VBS script. You can use the built-in Windows Task Scheduler, too.

defrag c:
defrag d:

Open in new window

I found an interesting article for the same, but it doesn't use VBS, instead it relies on BAT file. Please have a look at it, may be of some help to you.
