I'm running Defrag on 150GB raid 5 disk set which has SQL server. After 3 hours, it's only 4%. I don't know how long this will take. Questions

1. If I stop here and run again, Will the next defrag starts from where it stopped?

2. What options do I have to reduce the time it takes to defrag? I empty out recycle bin and deleted some files. I can't do disk cleanup because this also takes too much time while I have to bring up the server in time I promised.

Windows server 2003 STD 32bit
