volume c: has 40% free space but only 0% is available for use by disk defragmenter
Posted on 2007-12-05
The subject line pretty much says it all. I have a Windows 2000 Terminal Server with a 80 GB HD that is 70% fragmented, but I can't run defragment with any success even thought it has 40% free space cause none is "usable". The Page file size is only 768 MB. I tried running AusLogics Disk Defrag with a 1% improvement in fragmentation.
Also, I'm not sure how or why because it was in place before I got there, but this office is running this terminal server on a pentium 4 2.66 GHZ clone PC. I'm trying to convince the owner that they need to upgrade to TS 2003 and run it on an actual server, but they have gotten away with running it on a PC for so long he seems to think that all he needs to do is upgrade their terminal server hardware to a newer workstation PC and everything will be fine. What can I tell this guy to get him to understand that he needs to run his server on a SERVER?
