    Maybe I should also mention that it tells me during the boot-time defrag that
    it's starting defrag of the MFT, then milliseconds later it's moving on,
    telling me it didn't move jack shit ... although the thing's got 3062
    fragments, which by the way, it considers as Critical in the analysis... as
    you can imagine.

    I haven't trialed ver 8, so as a guess, I would say it *is* either a restriction
    for the trial version, *or* you may need to access the exe and give yourself
    full access permission(s)/ownership.

    Have you run a "normal" defrag before going for a boot-time?
    Also, you might like to tick the boxes for Directory Consolidation and Chkdsk, I
    would also suggest you go for the Reduce Paging File fragments too.
    Therefore, the first 4 boxes (I'm looking at ver 7)

    Mike & Brian,

    Thanks for you responses. Turns out the Diskeeper 8 trial version does
    defrag the MFT... cos it just did. I guess it didn't have the space before.
    Sorry :eek:|
