Use safe mode to defrag.

Every file the same or just some that it does defrag ?

Try turning off virtual memory.

You dont see files you see a screen of different coloured squares that windows sees as clusters and it could have moved then and they just look the same.

Try Diskeeper Lite available free on many magazine cover disks or download from several sites

I can thoroughly recommend this program which is installed on my desktop and laptop. Both now have 0 (zero) fragmented files even though it took about a week to completely defrag my latop. So impressed I actually bought the pro version.... Get it.
