When I run defrag on a server, it affects the network connectivity. We have several programs that rely on a mapped drive on this server, and when it is lost, it causes these programs to throw an error and/or freeze. I have never heard of this happening before, is it common? Is there anything to do short of using a third-party defrag program? Thanks for any help. Here are the server's specs (and this is a VM machine, by the way):

Windows Server 2003 SE, SP2
Intel Xeon CPU 2.66GHz
VM Ware Accelerated AMDnet ethernet adapter
