First a little history: I have windows vista home premium. I have always been able to defrag the C:\ drive and have not paid much attention to the D drive as it contains the recovery files and nothing else I believe. I had always assumed it got defraged as part of the volume. I also believed the D drive is partitioned. When vista was still new, I believe the D drive did get defraged. As all know, windows vista does not give a report after defraging. Now vista will not defrag the D drive. So I downloaded a free version of "SmartDefrag" and tried it. After the defrag, it shows on a report, how much on both C & D drives was defraged. But "SmartDefrag" did not defrag D drive either.
When I did an analysis of the D drive, it showed on the graph that over 98% of this drive was fragmented.
After defrag, it showed nothing was defragmented. After each file report, there's a notation saying "Not Enough Space". There is 1.24 gb free space available out of 8.87 gb, if this helps any. The C drive has 304 gb free space available out of 326 gb.
Should I be concerned, the computer appears to be working ok?
What are the best options if I must do something to the D drive?
