Could Not be Defragmented?

What does it mean after defragmenting when it tells you some files on the volume could not be defragmented?
Does this mean some files on that drive could not be put in there specific order or arranged correctly?

It's usually because the file was in use... defrag can't do an active file. I've also seen large files remaiin fragmented when defrag doesn't have enough disk space to defragment them.

Just means that some files (such as system or ones in use) could not be defragged. Depends on what software u use, but you could use one with an option to defrag on boot. That way the protected and locked files can be defragged before they're in use.

hmm, i am not sure but i there is this program that will defrag in dos better than windows, so if it is FAT 32 and not NTFS you might want to go hunting for the tool.
