RAID 5 NTFS volume in NT...what to use to defrag?

I have a RAID 5 NTFS setup on an NT server and currently use Diskeeper 5 to defrag.  Latley I can't get it to defrag...even after a defrag it tells me there is a lot of fragged space but it won't defrag it.  What do you guys recommend for defragging this setup?

Is the RAID hardware or software?

I would do one of two things.  Upgrade your DK to 7.0.  or backup your files to tape, format the volume and restore.

I would follow geoffryn's suggestion and upgrade to the latest version of diskeeper. Also for other performance increases you can refer to this page.

Sorry I get too busy sometimes and have to move on to other things so I forget that I asked a question.  This is what I did and it worked for about a month or so then went back to being fragged to hell.  I think I know what is causing it Outlook .pst files they are one sometimes very large file which you can only compact from Outlook so I believe they can't be defragged correctly when they get to be large files, but that is just my theory could be false.  Thanks for the help anyway.
