Slow Defrag

  loughlan 18:27 20 Feb 2003

Defrag has started to take 4 hours plus on my 3.2Gb HD, instead of some 20 minuites. Any idea what's going on?

Does it keep restarting? Maybe there are some background progs running.

Try starting in safe mode (how depends on your OS) and run defrag then.

click here for an article on defrag problems with links to Defrag ME and notes on how to install it. Apparently it's much better than it's predecessors. If that doesn't work try click here. for diskeeper lite.

Great freeware program. Doesn't get flummoxed if you keep working while it is doing its business unless disk activity is very intense, e.g. running virus checker at the same time. I'll post again when the defrag is finished. I have a 40 Gbyte drive about one quarter full.

That's how long it takes.
