Running ms defragmenter there is a large red, fragmented area of my main drive.
Defragmentation shows it as something like Windows sys 32 ms log file (I apologise for the non exact name I am ona different pc now)Sorry.
I believe this may have something to do with Log files from Bootvis. I tried this out a while back and then removed it, or so I thought.
How can I remove this fragmented area of my drive properly? Especially of it a leftover from Bootvis. I will post up the complete file name later, can anyone help with the above information?

It's probably your windows swap file. You cannot defrag in the normal way as it is being used all the time. Here is some further info.click here

Set the virtual memory to no pagefile. Restart the computer and reset the pagefile to your usual setting. Restart computer. You now have a nice new contiguous pagefile

Any good defrager will lock the drive while it does its job
