I always make sure I am not connected to the Internet when defraging in any OS - hope this helps.

Do a schedule scan disk. If you go to scandisk you will be told can't be done at this moment would you like to schedule a scandisk during next restart. Click yes.

Reboot and during the start up process scan disk will take place and then restart your system

Then try running Defrag.

I have also heard people having this problem using a FAT32 with XP instead of NTFS. Just a thought.

Dear Bill,

To solve the issue pertaining to Disk Defrag, I suggest you run this utility in Safe mode. To boot Windows XP in Safe mode, perform the following steps:

1. Close all open programs.
2. Click Start, and then click Run. The Run dialog box appears.
3. As shown in this illustration, type msconfig and then click OK.
4. The System Configuration Utility, as shown in the following illustration, appears. Check the "/SAFEBOOT" option, and then click OK.
5. You then see the prompt to restart the computer. Click Restart.

The computer restarts in Safe mode. (This can take several minutes.)

NOTE: When you finish with all troubleshooting (in Safe mode) repeat these steps, but in step 4, uncheck "/SAFEBOOT" Then close all programs and restart the computer as you normally would.

After booting the system in Safe mode, run the Disk Defrag utility.

Regards,
Ramro Kayta.
