Try this one: http://majorgeeks.co...ad.php?det=1207


ok , but wouldn't it be faster just to delete the files that can't be defragmented ?

If you have no use for them then yes. If the drive is not important at all, try formatting it.

Hmm something appeard when i entered Diskeeoer Lite :"MCC has detected an error in a snap-in.It is recommended that you shut down and restart MMC" ... i chose to :"ignore errors with this snap-in for the rest of the session "

what the [bleep] is a snap-in ?

Started defragmenting ..., seems to do a better job

Can the blues screens appear because of one partition being fragmented ?

The drive is failing. Backup your data and replace the drive. If it has that many bad sectors it could fail anytime causing total loss of data.

Everything points to the failure of the drive. Since you just keep data on it, you can buy a new one, and clone the old one to the new.

Just to see how this one partition looks like ^_^ , the others are ok (Note: on this partitio are just movies and episodes ... )


You have 2 hard disks right? How are they partitioned, and which one is failing? Also what stuff is on each partition?

I can't see anything else as your issue here.
How low is your budget?

If the old drive (40GB) is the heavily fragmented one, then you can have that fail and not really lose anything. Backup any stuff that you want from that hard disk into an external drive or your other hard drive.

Click on "Active Disk Monitor" under "Hard Disk" in my sig, and run the program. Is your drive said to be in good condition?

They look ok, but I am very sure that the fragmented drive is your problem.

You can buy a new drive and clone the old one to the new one using this program: http://www.easeus.com/disk-copy/

What is your budget, and how big is the bad hard disk?
