Disk Defrag won't complete even in Safe Mode...

smetterd asked
Last Modified: 2010-08-05
Even in safe mode, when I try to defrag a volume which needs it very badly, I get an error to the effect of:

"Volume D has 39% free space but only 1% is available to disk defragmenter. 15% of free space is required..."

How can I ensure that disk defragmenter gets use of the disk space it needs?
