im using windows XP, i am trying to defreg a 50gb partition using the standard windows defrag in system tools. but at the end of the defrag i get a report which states that it couldnt move certain files...these are movies on the partition
do you know why it cant move these files? i am not using ANYTHING during the defrag, interent connection, firewall virus scanner...everything is turned off all that is running is the defrag program.
im also finding that i cannot MOVE files or DELETE them from that same partition...i get a message saying these files are being used by another program...they are not being used by anything, how can i move or delete these files?
One way to forget all your defrag blues is to use Diskeeper, this app. auto-defrags without you having to do anything. It defrags without having to drop into safe mode and only runs when it is needed. I've used it on every machine I've had right back to Windows '98. Diskeepers home page is click here
I have gt a copy of Diskeeper, and ran the scan it sorted the other partitions out but not the BAD fragmented partition...i just has to format that partition. it was not getting defraged i left Diskeeper set to defrag ALL DAY and it couldnt move the files
the partition was full of video files which were about 700mb each.
i have not set diskeeper to defrag when needed automaticly, i shouldnt have that problem again
