Disk Defragment

Hi,

I was going to do defragment on one of the machines.  But it was hanging not doing anything.  Is this normal?  Thanks.

Hi mcrmg,
Try running defrag in safe mode :0) Press F8 as the system boots

or run chkdsk first

start >run >chkdsk

just noticed that you were not assigning strings there ... just  pointer manipulation ... that will work fine once search_str is declared properly ...

move char * search_str to the beginning of the function and everything should work well.

Dear mcrmg,

Just make sure there are no programs running at the background like Anti-virus , any schedule tasks etc..

Kill all the unwanted process going to task manager.

Have the latest update for your windows 2000..

Thanks,
Sunray

also make sure at least 20% of the disk is free or else a defrag will not run
