Hi, I'm stuck using a borrowed computer right now and when I checked how fragmented the drive was it was at 35%. I ran the defrag over night and in the morning it said it was at 21%. I ran it again that night but in the morning it was still at 21%. I remember this happening to a laptop of mine as well, so I hope its a common problem thats easily fixed. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

This is another option, you can set it then let it run overnight. It reboots the PC and only loads enough to run the defragmenting

SpeeDefrag is a simple program, that restarts your computer and runs defrag.exe with optimized windows settings before loading your desktop, which allows for faster and more thorough defragmentation. Once the defrag process has finished, it can optionally shut down your PC, otherwise reboot it.

If you use different defraggers, avoid running one directly after another so they don't undo things, hence the previous suggestion to run JK Defrag then only analyse with XP Defrag to check for improvements
