Sounds pretty close to normal. You might have had an extreme amount of fragmented files, and it just took a while.

Hmmm...

The access speed of a 20MB HD is quite slow, compared to today's speed. Gotta figure that in too.

That is unless you mean GB.:)

Just about every commercial defragmenter is better than the built-in defragmenter. You mention Diskeeper. There is also:

PerfectDisk - www.raxco.com
O&O Defrag - www.oo-defrag.com
Defrag Commander - www.winternals.com
SystemWorks - www.symantec.com
Vopt - www.goldenbow.com
Ontrack - www.ontrack.com

- Greg/Raxco Software

Disclaimer: I work for Raxco Software, the maker of PerfectDisk - a commercial defrag utility, as a systems engineer in the support department.
