What os r u?

If you haven't defragged for a long time, depending on hd size it can take ages. I'm doing my external hd 120gb and it's taking 24 hrs, but I do dv editing. It's faster than normal as I'm using the ME defraggger in 98se os. If u want it I'll send it to u.

Download Diskeeper Lite from click here

It is a Freeware defragmentation program that will run in the background, and completes the task more quickly.

I use Windows ME. Diskkeeper takes five or ten minutes to completely defragment my 40 Gbyte drive with about 9Gbytes of files.

The progress indicator jumps in steps of 10%

On completion I get a dialogue box like this one: click here

On closing the dialogue box the progress indicator is back at 0% again, ready to do the next drive, if you have one.

Doesn't system restore still load in safemode with ME? If so disable.

Also try doing thorough scandisc with auto fix unchecked 1st.

I have just been to the site to download diskeeper lite but can't find it. All I can down load is a trial version of the full application, how do I get the lite version?
