Just want to say thank you for the help I received by reading one of the other entries. Went from 59% to 65% free space, unmovable files are all together and only 4 entries on the report of non-fragmented files.

They are primarily my accounting (QuickBooks)- 292 mb program files and 292 mb data files. What if anything should I be concerned about???

Thank you

Hey
Didn't understand exactly what you mean about defragmentation?
Have you tried to use a NORMAL program to do this, and i don't mean the one
that comes with Windows...?

After scrolling through other entries with this problem(many files that could not be defragmented), I found a suggestion and went to where they directed me, used the program with some seriously good results BUT the remaining files that cannot be defragmented are the accounting ones that I mentioned. Since that is a primary use for my computer, I wondered how aggressive I should be with the situation or should I be being grateful for what I got out of it.
The defrag that came with XP2 Home was giving me a longer list everytime I ran it (a few times a week)with files that could not be defragmented.
Mainly, I don't want to ignore something that could build up to a bigger problem later on because I didn't persue defragmenting the rest of the files.
I am a little uneasy because even with very diligent maintenance, I still had an ME OS "malfunction" and had to reinstall, then just totally change the OS to XP2 Home because there were no accounting options for ME OS.
