Fragmented Windows

  szk2003 12:20 27 Mar 2003

i don't know whats the problem with my computer, but recently it become like 50% framented every day, i use norton speed disk and i usually defrag it once a month, but now i have to defrag it once a day.

i had a look at all the fragmented files and most of them is system restore snapshot.

please help if anyone has had this problem before

Safe Mode ( Windows Defrag that is ) to see if it makes any difference. I certainly notice a lot more fragmentation if I play certain games.

alright, i will try that, but which F key is it to get into that list when windows loads up

F8 or F5 or even the Left Ctrl.

Try Diskekeeper Lite its free click here and its by far the better Defrag option

I use DK Workstation running as a service. Occasional slowdowns when it is running in the backgroung, but no fragmentation.

Speedisk is great in '98 but rubbish in XP.

well i didn't not like it, but i just perfer speed disk, maybe cos its name is better known thats all. but i heard that diskeeper messes around with your system files so it might mess up your computer. but i mean if diskeeper is better, i have got a full version of it.
