Even in safe mode defrag does not function.

Sometimes back I sent a query about defragging in W2K. I was advised to conduct defragging under safe mode. But even in safe mode defragging does not work. Any lights on what the problem could be?

Have you used control + alt + delete to close any programs which are hidden? They shouldn't load in safe mode though.

You might be able to try it through DOS, but it won't be such an advanced scan. I'm not sure if you can do that with 2k though.

Try Diskeeper Lite, the free version of Diskeeper.

I have worked out a very fast way to defrag HDD.

Use Norton Ghost, dupm your HDD image to a new HDD, and that is.
