  • win2k defrag questions

    I've just defragged my C drive, and after completion, my drive is still severely fragmented. This is the analysis AFTER defrag has run.

    Volume fragmentation
    Total fragmentation = 19 %
    File fragmentation = 38 %
    Free space fragmentation = 0 %
    Not what I'd call complete. I always used to get 0% for all of the above. Why is my drive no longer getting defragged properly?

    I'm using NTFS and I've got file indexing running - are they the cause of the problem?

    You should disable as many background processes as possible (including indexing) when defragging. I don't know how effective defragging the boot partition can be, given that a lot of the files will be in use and one won't be able to move those. This is one advantage to having a small second boot partition just for defragging your primary.

      Sounds like you got a fragged system, which can't be defragged while your running it. I recommend what monkey suggested.
