I've got an Acer aspire 1683 (win xp) and I can not get the C drive to defragment. I have 52% free memory. I've done a disk cleanup, emptied my temp internet cache/folder, emptied wastebin and so on. I'm getting as far as Defragmenting... 1% and that's it.

I was able to defrag the laptop's other (D) drive without difficulty.

I'd be greatful if anyone has any ideas. Thanks.

Try click here.

If no joy, & as a temporary workaround, use the excellent & free MyDefrag click here. G

Thanks. Couldn't find the "Applog folder" in any case.
