I have a friend that has a dell and I will check it out tomorrow, it's a new system, I still think it has to do with the system save function delll has with the restore CD's ... The red line I'm speaking about is when you defrag you will see different colors on your file system, the red line fragmented files that can't be moved at various times. You can see this when you do a complete defrag. I will have a solution tomorrow. Drop me a e-mail around 4:00 pm to remind me and I will get back to you! It's nothing serious trust me!
