HD defragmenting problems.....
Posted on 2004-04-21
Hello there, now here's my problem. I'm currently runnig Windows XP Pro on a Maxtor 80GB harddrive. I've been using it for abt a year now. Up till abt a mth ago everything was going fine, but then i started having some probelms, like slow speed, system hangs. So what i did was to completely delete the old OS running on this disk and reinstalling Windows (while retaining my old files).
The thing is, now that the new OS is up, i'm having problems defragmenting the drive properly. I'm using Deekeeper Pro to do this and everytime, it stops at 12%. The program tells me it has finished its task. But running Diskeeper again reveals that my HD is still heavily fragmented:
Volume fragmentation: 98%
Data fragmentation: 96%
Any suggestions on how i can successfully fragment my drive while keeping my 60gigs of data would be very much appreciated. Thank you so much for your time :p
