XP Defragment Runs - but lots of red rem

By kimscomputing ·
I had to move off quite a few files from my mydocs. After this I have noticed that some programs (mostly Pinnacle Studio 8.0) isn't running correctly. I cannot create a mpeg without the computer crashing - before moving the files it was fine. I have run scan disk and disk defrag. Disk defrag runs completely through but leaves tons of fragmented files behind and claims it cannot unfragment the mydocs folder.

AMD 2000, 60 Gig Hd, 120 Gig HD, 1 Gig Memory, AIW Radeon, XP Home Edition

XP Defragment Runs - but lots of red rem

Start by going to the Recent files folder for each user profile and delete ALL the old links.

You may need / want a 3rd party defrag utility such as Disk Keeper from Executive Software.

Disk keeper worked. There was actually a bad file in mydocs that I removed and found 20 gigs. I was then able to defrag with the free trial version of Disk Kepper. Thanks for your help.
