I'm having trouble with ScanDisk. It keeps restarting without doing the full check, which I need to run Defrag. The problem also occurs in Defrag too.

The HDD is a new Maxtor 80 Gb, onto which I've transferred the data from a smaller HDD using 'Genie Backup Manager 4'

Do it in safe Mode. You sreen saver will stop it running

Shut down all other applications and disable both AV and Firewall programs before stating to defrag a drive.

Thanks Woodchip and Diemmess. A simple but effective solution.
