hi when i check for most defragmented files in diskeeper after defragmenting c drive i get

"1 244KB \ntldr [Excluded]" i have never seen this before how can i fix it thanks

I don't think it is broke and if it ain't broke, don't fix it. If diskeeper has decided to exclude and everything else appears OK, leave well alone

Short for NT loader, NTLDR is a program loaded from the hard drive boot sector that displays the Microsoft Windows NT startup menu and helps Microsoft Windows NT/2000/XP load. It is almost certainly a protected file and shouldn`t be included in a defragment. You`ve only got problems when it becomes corrupt or "goes missing" so let`s leave it alone!
