I am in the process of prepping my servers to add hard drives and then adding that space to my existing partitions. I am using a software package called partition manager 10.0. Prior to adding drives and repartitioning the instructions call for a chkdsk to be run on all current partitions. I completed that last night. I ended up taking a couple hours but no bad sectors were found so far so good. I have a C and D drive set up in RAID 5. (c being 25 gb and d being roughly 200gb). The second step in their instructions is to run a defragment on both drives. At midnight last night i turned off the screen saver and started a defragment on the d drive and went home. I woke at 7 am today drove back into work expecting this volume to be complete. When i arrived it was sitting at 9%. Are you kidding 6 hours and some change to get to 9%? How can i expedite this process? Can i run at startup or something?
