My System

about a defragger problem


WinXP, SP3, NTFS file system.

running XP defragger I get a message that shows "Cannot defrag some files,
files too big" (or words to that effect).

The analyze does show very large "Red" areas of the drive.

Ideas?

Thanks,
savagcl

Hi clif. I personally don't use the built in Windows Defrag Utility since it isn't as accurate and thorough as other 3rd party defrag tools. Try downloading and running Auslogics Disk Defrag.

It should be able to defragment all of the files on your harddrive.

The error pretty much means exactly what is says

Do you have any large ISO or Images of your hard drive files on the machine?

It may also mean that you do not have enough free space on the drive - 15% absolute minimum - 20 - 25% preferred.

If you can post the error message in it's entirety we may be able to dig deeper into this.
