    As far as I know, there wasn't a perfectdisk update this morning...
    Not sure about your problem tho.

    I just installed it last night so there was an update for me. All HD and partitions are showing all black - but the results look ok - it suggests a boot scan and smart placement. Windows xp defrag looks normal.

    My concern is the all black (nothing else) "excluded" - In case you did not notice.

    PerfectDisk ~ All Files Excluded

    Greetings Lynchknot,

    More than likely, you are seeing an issue with a driver that you have on your system.

    Check your system for this driver: hwfprot.sys

    If this is present, it will prevent PerfectDisk from getting access to the files on the volume.

    You can view our knowledgebase article on this issue here:

    http://www.raxco.com/support/windows/kb_details.cfm?kbid=393

    If you do not have the hwfprot.sys driver, you'll nee to check for these drivers: AlfaFM.sys, AFPAnsi.sys, AFPUNI.sys, BxShield.sys. These drivers are distributed by a company called Alpha Corp and are bundled with other software packages and thus, you may not have installed an Alpha Corp product, yet still have their drivers.

    You can view our knowledgebase artcile on this issue here:

    http://www.raxco.com/support/windows/kb_details.cfm?kbid=392

    If you have futher issues, I would suggest that you contact Technical Support directly.

    mr. claibborne, it's a pleasure you stopped by to help

    if you do a search, you'll see for the most part, perfect disk is the most endorsed defrag application on this site.

    Iwelcome to this board, and I hope you have the chance to stop by often.

    Is Greg Hayes still with Raxco?

    if so, tell him everone over here, (formally ntfs.org and xp-erience .org) says hello

    NP Johnny.

    I ran a search for those drivers and turned up nothing. I wonder if this a result of upgrading to larger drive and moving the contents of drive C over to it with the app Drive Image.

    Ok, I found Bx shield - not by running search but by running windows defrag and viewing the report that said it could not defragment that file. So I should delete that file? It's in windows\sys32\drivers

    *edit - that's funny. I go to C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\bxshield - and it's not there.

    *edit - deleted folder shield - working now. - I guess I cannot hide...er.. "sensitive" files.

    yep. absolutely right on that one. Perfect Disk is quite the good Defrag app.

    Mr. Claiborne, i don't mean to sound greedy or anything... but is there any chance you may possibly be able to give your loyal supporters at OSNN.net a license for Perfect Disk? if not, it's ok. still good to have someone around to help out in case there is a problem that needs a quick solution.

    P.S. if you do plan to stick around here a bit..... Welcome to OSNN.net

    - hehe, If I didn't "show hidden folders" how could I get this far? "C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers" -
