Is it a single file that is unable to be moved? Which file and how big is it?

IMO 1% fragmentation and 30-odd files is not terrible out of how many thousands of files would be on the drive. But basically it should be a matter of working out why they are unmovable. You can try defrag in Safe Mode to eliminate locked/in use files, and look at the file Properties to see if there's any potentially restrictive ones you can uncheck such as Read Only.
If you can transfer a larger file off onto another partition/drive, that's a simple way to remove it from the scene when defragmenting, then after defrag, it should copy back unfragmented, or largely so.
If it is not possible to move a file off the drive, e.g. won't delete, that would warrant further investigation.
One worthwhile thing to try would be run Error Checking on the drive to ensure there's no file system corruption upsetting the operation of defrag.
I had a similar problem with my windows 7 machine and it was a permissions issue regardless of admin rights you need to take ownership of said files took me a month to read through all the hits even though ms says admin can do it its a little bit of trial and error i found this helped me hope it helps you link

The Auslogisics Defrag program is the only 3rd party defragger I ever use on my Windows 7 SP1.
Never had any problems with it since I installed it.
