I recently tried to defragment my pc for the first time (the pc is 3 months old with Windows Vista). After more than 4 hours the process was not complete and I had to cancel it. I was quite surprised since on my much older laptop (Windows XP), defragmenting takes 30 minutes max. Is there something wrong with my PC?
had an 80gb hard drive which hadn't been defragged for a while. Defrag ran for an hour then said it couldn't complete because the disk was too full. Cloned the lot onto a new 250 gig HDD, then defrag said it didn't need to be done. Did it anyway, but it only took 20 mins. I suspect most of the defragmentation had been done at the first attempt on the old disk
