Still unable to defrag even with diskkeeper lite

  Haylyn 18:26 16 May 2005

Still unable to defrag disk; have run spyware etc. could not defrag with windows; or scandisk;
Analysis got to 9% and system froze. Tried removing all old programs, checking registry and then loaded disk keeper lite but this stops at 9% when analysing.

Any further suggestions??

"Windows Defrag" always pauses at between 9% and 11% as it is running "Scan Disk".

If you have not run Defrag for a while, it could take Scan Disk a couple of hours to run it's course and the defragmenting of a large, heavily fragmented, drive could take all night!

when did you last run completely either scan disc in standard mode or defragment on the pc?

Last ran a defrag about a month ago; have not got much data on disk.

Hi, if your OS is XP, run Disk Cleanup (in System Tools) before trying the defrag.

what OS are you running?
what happens when you try and run scan disc, and presumably you are trying scan disc in simple mode? and not thorough mode:)

you will need to run scan disc first to clean the disc; then run defragment, prefereably in safe mode if it is that badly problematic:)

Have you switched off any Anti-Virus program that may be running? It worked for me.

Thnaks for all your help; still can't run scan disk but defrag is working.
