some files cannot be defragmented?

When defragmenting the laptop reports 'some files cannot be defragmented.'
Why does this happen and how can it be corrected?
Thanks in advance

Windows will be using some files and so they cannot be moved on the drive.

you should either defrag in safe mode or even use a defrag program that runs before windows boots.
