Optimize Hard Disk When Idle
 
Note: This tweak only works on Windows XP/.NET.

Description:

This setting will rearrange files on the hard drive when the computer is idle thus improving the performance of the system.

Steps:
1. Open your registry by clicking on Start > Run > Type: "regedit" and find or create the key below.
2. Create a new DWORD value, or modify the existing value, called "EnableAutoLayout" and set it according to the value data below.

Code:

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OptimalLayout]
  Value Name: EnableAutoLayout
  Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)
  Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)

3. Exit your registry, you may need to restart or log out of Windows for the change to take effect.

Hi Kash,
You have to creat a DWORD value not any other, which I think is the case with you.

I got that, thats why the previous post.
Just enter either 1 or 0.
1 is for enabled and 0 is for disabled.
