    Using Win XP home and when I run MS defrag there appears to be no
    significant defragmentation at completion. Large blocks of fragmented
    sectors exist. I have also run another defrag utility again with no
    reduction in fragmented sectors.

    Listed below are the details from the MS defrag utility. I am somewhat
    of a novice and do not know how to interpret the results - especially
    the many files that cannot be defragmented.

    Can some kind soul assist me and perhaps offer suggestions on what if
    anything I can do to defrag these huge files.

    Volume (C:)
    Volume size = 37.27 GB
    Cluster size = 4 KB
    Used space = 19.64 GB
    Free space = 17.63 GB
    Percent free space = 47 %

    Volume fragmentation
    Total fragmentation = 18 %
    File fragmentation = 36 %
    Free space fragmentation = 0 %

    File fragmentation
    Total files = 49,381
    Average file size = 522 KB
    Total fragmented files = 28
    Total excess fragments = 82
    Average fragments per file = 1.00

    Pagefile fragmentation
    Pagefile size = 384 MB
    Total fragments = 1

    Folder fragmentation
    Total folders = 4,696
    Fragmented folders = 1
    Excess folder fragments = 0

    Master File Table (MFT) fragmentation
    Total MFT size = 133 MB
    MFT record count = 54,112
    Percent MFT in use = 39 %
    Total MFT fragments = 2

    Those files look like temporary files of some kind. They may have been in
    use when you ran defrag. If those files still exist on your machine, try to
    delete them.

    Hope this helps. Let us know.

    Before you run DEFRAG do a disk clean up. Check all the boxes and try
    again.

    My advice would be not to defrag. It is of no noticeable
    benefit (except in rare circumstances) and exercises the
    hard drive. Which is NOT good.

    Cheers,
