Why does Defraggler not fully defrag?

Recommended Posts

I've just downloaded and used Defraggler for the first time, initially trying Quick Defrag (which wasn't very quick) and then Defrag.  On the latter, after about five hours on a 40GB IDE disk (my OS is WinXP SP3) I was surprised to see that despite the Defrag Complete message, the disk fragmentation is still 27%.


(Sorry, I don't appear to be able to insert a screen dump from Clipboard so please see attachment)


Why is this and what, if anything, can I do to achieve a full defrag?  


Any help for a newbie will be appreciated.


Apologies for the missing attachment (or is it because I don't know where to look for it!).  Whatever, I've another interesting (?) snippet to add to my post:


The drive shown in the attachment DOES NOT APPEAR TO HAVE ANY MFT ALLOCATION (compared to a very large segment on another HDD tested).  How can this be?  I didn't think Windows XP Pro SP3 could operate without an MFT.   Perhaps someone can advise me?
