Defragmentation does not work



i can defrag my D: and E: drive but i cannot defrag the C: drive. when i try to defrag C:, it says defragmenting and it stays at 1% forever and the HD light does not blink as it does when defragmenting other drives. i have some services disabled but none of which have to do with defragmentation. i defragged the C: drive few weeks ago. i tried from the command line, the same issue, it does not work. anyone has any idea what is going on?
it does not report any errors.

i'm using windows defrag program.
my computer:

1.4 AMD TB
512 DDR ram
Acoustic edge sound card
Realteack NIC
IBM 60 GB 7200 RPM HD

Armed and DWI

Same problem. So I use Norton SpeedDisk (comes with system works) and it works fine


i used disk keeper and it worked. i guess i'm gonna stick with it till i format the system. but i stopped its service from running. i'll mannaully enable it when i need to defrag. it takes like 5 MB of ram and slows system at start up.
really the diskkeeper service is slowing you at startup? I've never had any slowdown problems with it, I like to have ti running since my comp is never off and after the first couple of defrags it works great.


it's not noticable but from the amount of memory it takes you can tell it would slow the system to start up. you only need it to be running in the back ground when youhave the set it and forget it option enabled other than that it's useless and wastes system resources.

Why is it when I try to run disk keeper in safe mode it tells me that it'll try to connect with a local host...or something to that nature and instead of connecting, it just sits there trying to do something besides defrag my drive?

When I say something, I mean it just sits there like it's trying to start up forever.

Forget about DiskKeeper! It's basically your integrated defragger, but with one extra--it gives a person more information about the condition of their drive.

Disk Keeper did nothing exceptionally different from my current default defrag program. It left chunks of fragged files untouched for no reason and it gave me many other problems, such as it kept pushing a group of fragged files further away from the defragged group.

If you really want a good alternative defrag program get O&O Defrag 2000 Pro. This program not only actually defragged my entire drive, but it's also much faster than Disk Keeper.


I stick also to SpeedDisk for defragmenting. It worked well with Windows 98 SE.

Now my SpeedDisk has to work on Windows XP. Although my harddisk is defragmented regularly every few days, the defragmenting takes quite long as if the harddisk had never been defragmented before. Very strange...

Do have the same experience?
