Running XP, I've used Diskeeper Lite several times, but now it jumps to 12% (percent, if that gets garbled!) and stays there. Occasionally it gets to 25%, but stops there, too. The hard drive continues to rattle noisily, and keeps going when I stop the program. Then the computer will not shut down and I have to use the power button.
I have reinstalled the program twice, still the same.
So I uninstalled it and ran XPs defragmenter. That went through without a problem, though the noise from the hard drive was significantly less.
Which made me wonder, because Diskeeper is faster, is this at the expense of wear and tear on the hard drive?
