Closing as much applications as possible, also defragmentating more than once will probably help. Windows cant move files when there in use :thumbsup:

The Windows defrag doesn't manage every file...it will not defrag every file on a partition/drive.

That's one reason why there are 3d-party applications which defrag.

to add to some info - you could use a 3rd party defragger running from a LiveOS... this would defeat the fact windows cant move files its using when it is running itself... :thumbsup:
