Been trying to defragment my Presario_RP (D:) drive (file system FAT 32) for some time now as the disc usage shows nothing but fragmented files and that there is only 491MB of space left from an 11.83 GB capacity. When I try to run the defrag program it gives me a warning that the defrag program needs 15% free space to run correctly and I only have 4% left, it also sugests that I go in and deleate un-needed files on my D drive but, I have no clue as to what is and is not needed as I have no list available. Is there a program that can fix this mess or how do I straiten it up. Any help I can get in fixing this matter would be great.

Thank you.

I'm fairly sure that the D: drive on a Presario is the recovery partition. As such it does not need to be defragmented.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.

If the D: drive is your recovery partition, you should not delete anything from it.
You could delete something important-then if you ever need to restore your system to factory settings it may not work.
