Not Defraging Properly!

Recommended Posts

Hey Everyone!

 

So, I just got defraggler about a week ago and worked perfectly on my external (F:\) and partitoned drive (D:\) but when I used it on my main drive with vista on (C:\) it only defragged some of the files and left some major ones fragmented! I checked the ledgend and saw those files were not unmovable so i tried again, yet it said "no files were defragmented."

 

Does anyone know why this 9.2GB of files wont defrag?

 

Thanks :)

How can you tell? Defraggler doesn't mark unmovable files as such. The hibernation file, metadata, system files are just shown as "normal" files and are simply left out of defragmentation.

I also would appreciate to have them marked as "unmovable".

I have exactly the same problem.

I tried at a Windows XP computer, and the problem does not appear. It is only for Win Vista.

 

I guess I've got a short cut to get over this: copy the exe defraggler file to a pen drive and start the defraggler from the pen drive instead of from the HD. I noticed that if you do so all files will be defragmented.

 

Good luck

I have checked the fragmented file list and i didnt see the "hibernation file" or any "metadata", but thanks for trying. :)

The "hibernation file" is only on the hard drive if you enable Hibernation in Power Settings:

The "metadata" files are not visible because they are part of the files Properties:
