Run a scandisk, error checking in winxp. The command you wanted would have been chkdsk /f f=fix.

More info...
I ran chkdsk /f rebooted and I am still experiencing the same problem. This is only on the C [boot] drive. I ran analyze on the D drive and defrag runs fine.
It seems to pick files from the C:\Windows directory exclusively, usually log or ini files, however it also picked ms097.acl (office 97 auto correct log), info147.sys, etc. I have deleted some of these files then run analyze again and it picks a new file.

any other suggestions? :tazz:
