  1. HI there,

    When I'm running "defragmentation" on my drive C with Windows XP Professional, I got a pop-up with the following information:

    Some files on this volume could not be defragmented.
    Please check the defragmentation report for the list of these files.

    (defragmentation report)
    Volume (C:)
    Volume size: 149 GB
    Used space: 13.66 GB
    Free space: 135 GB
    Total files: 97, 757
    Average file size: 196 kg
    Total fragmented files: 1
    Total excess fragments: 327
    Average fragments per file: 1.00
    Total master file table size: 154 MB
    MFT record count: 106,098
    Percent MFT in use: 67
    Total MFT fragments: 3

    Does anyone know how to fix it? I do appreciate for your help.

    Rgds,
    Nino

    You need to run Check Disk

    1. Open My Computer on the desktop
    2. Right Click on Local Disk C:
    3. Click on for Properties
    4. Click on Tools from the Menu
    5. Select Error-Checking
    6. Select and check the two boxes
    7. Click on Start

    Error checking is a different process

    But do it first.
    What you got is normal.It can't defrag files that are being used.
    eg: It can't Defrag Disk Defragmenter.
    Some use safe mode,but i don't feel it's necessary for Defrag.

    know when to quit! Only the MFT would be of any concern and you can't fix it
    anyway!

    Running Chkdsk is a necessary regular check.
    It tests your hard drives condition or if it's failing.
    It won't change what is defragged though.
    Then Use Defrags Analyze first too.
