I have a C and an F drive, I defragmented my F drive, worked perfectly. Then i restarted into safe mode the next day to defrag the C, turned it on and went to bed, woke up and it said it was finished, but it at most defraged 15% of it, so i ran again, and it keeps stopping between 3% and 14%. When it stops, it gives me a message saying "Defragmentation is complete for C. Some files could not be defragmented." The file it seems to keep stopping at is a system restore. Should I clean out the system restores to fix this? Or is it another problem?

I would run check disk first, and check both boxes. then try defrag again in safe mode. If it still hangs up, delete the restore points, run defrag, then when finished reenable system restore.

Open my computer, right click the C: drive, choose properties, choose the tools tab, then choose check now. you will get a message that tells you you can not check an active disk do you want to check on restart, choose yes. Disk check will run on restart.
