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?

How large is the volume and how much free space do you have?

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.
