  1. Thanks for the advice. Unfortunately, I have already used the Windows standard defragmentor. Thanks for your time, though. Take care, RedStarYellowSun
  2. I tried creating a fresh pagefile and defragging without one. Unfortunately, it only moved one square. Your other suggestions, I do not know if I can do that. I only have one hard drive and the partition especially made for pagefile is in that same 1 hard drive. Thanks for your time. Take care, RedStarYellowSun
  3. Thanks for the info. I learned something new. But concerning Microsoft's Pagedfrg: Something seems odd with my pagefile.sys . I have set Pagedfrg to run during e evry start up. So, when the computer starts up, It reports that the pagefile.sys is in 1 (while, unified) fragment. But after start up, both Windows Defragmenter and Piriform Defraggler report that it is in 2 fragments and the and the $LogFile and $MFTMirr are in between each fragment. What can I do? Darn... $LogFile and $MFTMirr are in the way, so they're still 2 fragments. I shouldn't have defragged the partition. To both: Thanks for your time. Take care, RedStarYellowSun
  4. I was trying to help my mom with her Windows XP computer problems when I came into this problem. Following the advice of a website, I tried to defrag a part of her hard drive partitioned for pagefile.sys but found that Defraggler ineffective in defragmenting this type of file. After the defragging session, I found new files (probably created by Windows) entitled "$LogFile" and "$MFTMirr". I know that these files are quite puny, but is there a way of deleting these? Also, is there some tool out there that can defragment pagefile.sys? Thank you for your time. Take care, RedStarYellowSun
  5. Wow, that's weird. I have an idea, though. Is there some undefragmentable files there that are entitled "System Volume Information"? I hear that when a non-Windows defragger program modifies the disk, Windows saves information for backup. I heard that there is a way of shutting this of, but I don't remember how.
  6. Really? In my case, there is this "System Volume Information" that keeps consuming more and more of my space and I cannot defrag that data. How about you guys? Take care, RedStarYellowSun
  7. Everytime I defragment with Defraggler, I find that I have less space. I use Vista Business. Why is this? Is there a way of fixing this? Thanks for your time. Take care, RedStarYellowSun
  8. Thanks for the info and links! They were quite helpful. Take care, RedStarYellowSun
  9. I love Defraggler. Ever since I discovered the secret of defragmenting and defragmenting my free space, my Vista has never been faster. So, I tried installing it on my sister's PC (an XP) and my mother's laptop (also an XP). This is where the clash began. In my Vista, I can perform both tasks ["Defrag Freespace (allow fragmentation)" first, "Defrag Checked" last) and, when I would redo it again, they would both report that the disk was optimized according to both standards (free space AND continuous, 1-piece data). But, in XP, it seems that the two standards clash and contradict. I would do one process, when I did the other, it would just undo what was done my the first process... and vise versa. Is this just with their machines? Or is this universal for all (or at least most) XP's? Is there a way defragmenting with both standards met? Thank you for your time. Take care, RedStarYellowSun
  10. I heard from a friend of mine that Vista is now on its way to being obsolete because Microsoft has come up with a new system called "Microsoft 7". I Googled and found that it does indeed exist, but (at least my corner of the globe) it doesn't seem too well know. How about where you guys are? Is it any better than Vista? Thanks for your time. Take care, RedStarYellowSun
