Dear Sir I am trying to defragment my hard drive.  I search your database and followed the directions for defragmenting that you previously gave someone else. I did what you instructed that person to do as far as indexing(nothing was indexed) and closing everything in task manager except "Explorer and "Icon Tray"  I have left the defragmenter up for a while and am still getting a 0% defragment.  Please help!
Thanks for your assistance.

Hi,

Do you have an antivirus program running? Try disabling it if you do.

If not, try booting up using "Diagnostics Startup Mode"

Becareful that you deselect all other (networked) drives that are not within the actual computer case.

Hi,

Try running scandisk before to make sure there are no errors on the drive.

Sylvain Amyot, I tried the scan disk, but there was an error message that wouldn't allow me to scandisk.

Brian,
Thanks...I will give it a shot.
