Hello,

i am using Diskeeper 10 professional, after defragmenting of C: Drive following Job report is shown ( i am worry about its health and Master File Table (MFT) what is MFT and how can i improve it) also attached my report

Job Report[u][color=#FF0000]Volume (C:):

Recommendations
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Findings on C:

Diskeeper has completed a defragmentation run on this
volume and there remain 727 fragmented files and/or
directories and 1614 excess fragments. (There were 16586
excess fragments before the defragmentation run, and now
there are 90% fewer.)

The average number of fragments per file is 1.04.

You should schedule Diskeeper to run considerably more
often than it has been running to reduce the current
fragmentation and maintain a lower level of fragmentation.
This volume is heavily fragmented, with 62% of the total
volume space available for defragmentation.
1. Due to the
high MFT usage, it is recommended that you expand the MFT
on this volume. Use the Frag Shield option in the Diskeeper
Configuration Properties to configure the MFT on this
volume to a larger size.
2. Defragment volume C now using
Diskeeper.


Volume Health
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Warning

The overall health of volume C: is degraded

The overall health is at "Warning" level for the following
reasons:

1. The MFT usage was currently 98 percent of the total MFT
size, which indicates it is likely the MFT will become
fragmented.

2. The volume is heavily fragmented. The average number of
fragments per file is 1.04.


Access Time
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
Time to read fragmented files on volume C

Current read time: 47 seconds

Optimum read time: 43 seconds

9% improvement



Time to read all files on volume C

Current read time: 2 minutes

Optimum read time: 2 minutes

2% improvement

Boot the PC and keep tapping the F8 key until you get options, choose safe mode and select the administrator account, defragment, if it still shows errors, run it again

When you reboot the PC after this, it will start as usual

If you let the HDD be defragmented by WinXP standard program, you will also keep some fragmented files. I always run a defrag twice.
Maybe you should do that too :whistling:

Use the XP one in safe mode, you can run it straight after, then use the diskeeper one in normal mode, you can also run that straight after if you need to
