  1. Admin...If you check new posts on this forum you will see this affects other users as well using latest Android version on Google Play. We need a solution or program update. Thanks. Seems there is little assistance out there. M
  2. I have the same problem after just installing on my new RCA 7 Voyager tablet. Uninstalled and reinstalled. No difference. It is the version on Google Play today. v. 1.11.43. I still have over 4 GB space left in storage. I have KitKat 4.4. with a quad-core processor. Hope there is a simple solution. Thanks
  3. Well, seems I got lucky: I ran the standard Windows 7 Defragmenter, through all it's many "passes", then tried Defraggler Freespace defrag and this time it worked properly. Not sure what the Windows Defragmenter did differently, but it corrected whatever was wrong. Hopes this helps someone else in future who browses these posts.
  4. Further to the above: it seems to be stuck on the System Volume Information file whichis about 1.5 GB in length.
  5. I am unable to run a complete Defrag of freespace on my Windows 7 laptop. I have tried twice with same result: the 2nd time I let it run all day but still stayed at 9%. Not sure what to do next. Standard Defrag works fine. I have only 34GB of data on the HD.
  6. The $RecycleBin entries were from when I 1st got this PC and had set up a separate Admin user ID plus my own. I realized I didn't need both and removed the one named Administrator, but keeping those priviledges in my usual logon. That's where the $RecycleBin files were: in the removed Administrator login. So I recreated that Admin ID, deleted the files in it's RecycleBin and removed the Admin user again. The files were then not listed in Defrag. I didn't know Defrag listed every user's files.
  7. Still the same problem ongoing...can anyone advise if this is this normal ??? After I run Defraggler, and I immediately Analyze again, it says MORE fragmented files have been found. Subsequent runs fill in some of the blanks within the grouping that the previous run left unfilled. But each run leaves much RED (fragmentation) in the middle of the drive, plus some unfilled spaces in the top grouping, and more fragmented files (in this case 31 files totalling 14GB or 11%). File examples: Program Files (x86)\Shaw Secure\Common\ 210kb 4 frags Windows\System 32\Logfiles\Scm\ 15,616kb 3 frags Windows\System32\WDI\Logfiles\ 1,408kb 2 frags Windows\System32\spool\ 14kb 2 frags etc. If the drive has really been defragged, why are all the newly created files fragmented when written to disk right after defrag complete? Defraggler only seems to work on the files at the beginning of the partition. If the files in the middle of the partition cannot be defragmented by Defraggler, why bother to show that they are fragmented. Unless, of course, someone can tell me how to defragment them using other means/settings. Attached are screenshots taken after 2nd consecutive Defrag and immediate Analysis after 2nd Defrag complete.

  8. Well individual file defrag worked for those that Defraggler will process: not the C:\System Volume Information\ ones which begin with { .
  9. This is not the accessible Recycle Bin...note the character in front of the name Recycle. I cannot see this path even when I ask to see hidden files, and CCleaner doesn't find it either even with all filetypes checkmarked. What I am trying now is to checkmark each file in the list and do them individually. However the ones which begin with an { will not defrag at all.
  10. Good response Glenn... I live near Richmond (Langley) and have just bought a new PC myself. Although I have upgraded previous machines by installing new motherboards, CPUs, RAM, HDs, video cards, etc, I just watched for something that I thought would meet my needs at a retailer that had a no-questions return policy (there are several chains in the Vancouver area). Buying from a "hole-in-the-wall" PC assembler is dangerous as there is usually no return policy if after a week or so you find it's not meeting your needs. My personal criteria for upgrading is: when major apps/new hardware I want to use won't work efficiently (or at all) on what I own. Usually because of an O/S that's no longer supported, a BIOS that doesn't recognize new hardware, or CPU/FSB that's too slow. Here is my history of upgrades with reasons for doing so: 1. Windows for Workgroups 3.11 - Pentium 60 (bought at local computer store recommended by my employer to get employee discount) - too slow to copy/burn CDs 2. Windows 95 - Pentium 166MX (O/C to 200MHz) - Had Hole-in-wall retailer install M/B-CPU-memory (was still a newbie). - unable to play/copy DVDs 3. Windows 98SE - Celeron 500 - bought parts at London Drugs clearance bins ( M/B, CPU, RAM), installed them myself. (still original case, power supply, keyboard, mouse !!!) - too slow for efficient video authoring (8 hours for 30 min video) (Would need new case, power supply for any current processor.) 4. Vista Home Premium 64-bit - Compaq Pentium Core 2 Duo E5200 - bought at Staples back-to-school sale plus teacher discount after trying their Compaq Pentium Core 2 Duo E2200 ( two weeks later E5200 was on sale for $30 extra to get 0.25GHz faster, 250GB bigger H/D, 2GB more memory, 64-bit Vista - their exchange policy used for swap.) - Also purchased new 22" LCD display, 2.1 speaker system, all-in-one printer, ergometric mouse to match (new tower and KB were black: all my previous components were beige, so bit the bullet and changed everything.) These were purchased at various outlets with good return policies where I got the best sale prices. Back-to-school and Boxing day sales are best for PCs.
  11. I have run Defraggler several times back-to-back, but even though it says completed, there is almost as much still showing in red spread over the drive. Each time I run it, a tiny bit more is concentrated in blue at the top of the defrag window, but not much when it says completed. After 5 runs, it still shows over 40% fragmented. The attached screenshots I took 2 minutes ago, saying 50% complete and now it says Complete, but nothing much has changed. This is a new Compaq Intel E5200 PC (Vista Home Premium 64-bit edition, 4GB memory, 500GB hd) on which I have installed my programs and have used for a few weeks, mostly Web browsing, reading e-mails, authoring a few home videos.
