How big is your hard drive?
Large drives (multiple terrabites) can take a long time for a full defrag, especially if there are a lot of smaller files to move about.

Instead of a full drive reorgansiation many of us just defragment the specific files that are fragmented - try this:

Ananlyze - View Files (or open the file tab) - then check (or highlight) the specific files you want to defrag - and select 'Defrag Checked' (or Defrag Highlighted).

That defragments only the specific fragmented files rather than reorganising the whole disk, so it's much quicker to do.

Worried about 'Tracking Files'? Worried about why some files come back after cleaning? See this link:

Defragmenting all files all the time only increases the likelihood of bit rot as the data travels through your CPU, Memory, I/O chip, _without_ CRC protection.  Defragging once every month to 3 is enough, unless you are a movie editor, in which case you will copy your files to a different media or server once you are done, and erase the fragmented files anyways (then defrag).
