Hello!

How do I bypass the power check in defrag?

I have this problem on a laptop, the laptop has a problem with the motherboard. So windows report that it is running on battery, eaven when I'm useing AC power. And I need to defragmentate my drive because the laptop is getting slower and slower...

put the latest bios on it and try defragging again, or try a 3rd party defragger. i used oodefrag4pro once, it was ok.
