    To the best of my knowledge, no, but I've never tried to make it.  How do you propose to install it?  It's an CP component - built in tool.

    I'm wondering if you can just copy/paste defrag.exe (maybe other dependent files if I can figure out what they are).  The only problem for me is that I don't have a test Windows 2000 PC.

    A easier alternate - use DefragNT (free):
    I've been using it on 2000 - works quite well.

    DefragNT doesn't look like it supports NTFS in Win2k, does it?  If not, then it won't work for me as they are all using NTFS.
