you're not gonna believe this without a picture so I uploaded the screenshot

if you read my other post on the sp, there was no file fragmentation on my box from the sp install, I suppose this is because I had a nice block of free hardrive space

anyway, after the defrag, I actually have more fragmentation, only slightly less fragmented free space, and lower disc performacne after a defrag then I had before

lesson, sometimes you don't want to defrag your free space

yes that is normal for perfectdisk, as lord says tick the little box that says at boot, and restart your pc

lol... that does NOT look normal guys... He's spent 1.5hrs defragging and there's MORE file fragmentation than before.
But the offline (boot time) defrag does help speed up the system as already mentioned.

you cant defrag system files in use or the mft or meta data - these can only be done off-line, once an off-line defrag has been done things will look better :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
