i can't defrag one of my hard drives it just freezes on 1%

Is this the same disk as the other one in this thread click here ? Diemmess is waiting for an answer there.

You can try booting into Safe Mode and do the defrag there.

But I don't know whether your 2 problems are connected. Are there any error messages from either application (disk cleanup and defrag). If there's something wrong with the drive itself, better hold it, and do a scandisk or chkdsk first.
