Sounds strange to me, Have you tried defragging in safe mode in case the files were being used?

Strange, and unusual. But, if it's just one thin red line, then i'd not worry about it at all.

get diskeeper lite...after you install and run it click on view report...tell me what you find...

defraggers will not defrag restore files ...or do very good on video files...so if you have alot of downloaded video files dont worry about it...
