Windows 8 New Defrag GUI

Microsoft has redone the GUI for the defrag program. Many people were dissatisfied with the lack of information from the Vista/7 GUI, so the new one is a bit more involved, but still very simple. You can analyze the drive before “optimizing” it, and it tells you the status of the process as well.

    Any ideas why when I click on Optimize nothing happens?  Same thing when I try to run defag from Administrator Tools?  It was working recently.

     Executing dfrgui.exe also does nothing.
