    I have Windows XP Professional SP3, all updates installed.
    Whenever I run Disk Defragmenter, it never completes and keep getting
    message: Some files on this volume could not be defragmented. Please check
    the defragmentation report for the list of these files.

    When I check report no files are listed. see attached reports

  2. What to do?

    Go to the correct Windows XP group for Windows XP Home & Pro. This is
    the Windows 64-bit group, as it says in the title, and you don't have
    64-bit Windows. You have 32-bit Windows.

    Start by trying the groups below:

    microsoft.public.windowsxp.general

    or

    microsoft.public.windowsxp.help_and_support

  3. As Bobby points out, this group is for 64-bit Windows. But regardless of
    what group you end up going to, I suspect you'll have to use a third party
    defragmentation utility to get much beyond where you are. I use and like
    PerfectDisk, but others are quite happy with DiskKeeper. Both support 64-bit
    and 32-bit.

    Try checking for disk errors and fixing. Try defragging again. You can run
    that by right clicking on the drive in Computer, selecting from the context
    menu.

  5. I am using PerfectDisk, which does a boot time defrag when it needs to.
