    Wont Defrag (2002)

    Hi I hope someone can help.

    I'm trying to defrag my hard drive - only 20Gb. I've used the windows one but after running all night was only @ 1%, I've also tried Diskeeper light - although this completes it keeps telling me that the hard drive is heavily defragmented with 33% still fragmented and recommends I do it again - which I have a number of times.

    Any body got any ideas?

    How much free space do you have on the drive?
    Have you shut down all running applications you possibly can?

    Leif,

    Thanks for the reply. I have around 6Gb left on the harddrive. I shut all applications down - all that runs is the screen saver.

    "all that runs is the screen saver" which will keep things from defragging.
    Turn it off also.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.
