Win98 Defrag crash
Posted on 2005-04-19
I have an old Win98 PC on my network that I am trying to keep going. It is only used for word processing so therefore does not need to be anything special.
I am trying to clean it up but everytime I try and run Disk Defragmentor the machine crashes. Defrag opens, but when it starts the process it states that it is restarting due to drive contents changing, it does this twice and then the system freezes.
I have managed to run scan disk after several attempts (kept crashing), but just can't get defrag to run.
I remember this happening when I had 98 at home but can't remember how to get round it.
