disc health

hi this is a message from diskeeper after defrag warning the overall health of volume c is degraded the MFT is currently 96 percent of the total MFT size which indicates the MFT will become fragmented, should i use diskeeper frag shield to fix this, the hard disc is a new sata 80 gig drive and new install of wxp what would be the best way to fix this thanks chippy

Ignore it - so the MFT is about to fragment. You will not notice any difference in performance, in fact you will notice absolutely nothing at all.

If you're seriously worried you can probably download software from your HDD manufacturer that will run a detailed check on your drive.

This is NOT an error with the HDD. The MFT is allocated a set amount of space on the drive when it is formatted. That size is being reached so the drive will need to allocate more space.

That is all it means.
