Hi,

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

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.

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

or run chkdsk first

start >run >chkdsk

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
