OK, so I probably went years without fragmenting my hard drive.  My bad.  Here's my defrag result log.  It's not good. Appreciate any advice.

 

 

Volume (C:)
    Volume size                                = 80.66 GB
    Cluster size                               = 4 KB
    Used space                                 = 61.25 GB
    Free space                                 = 19.41 GB
    Percent free space                         = 24 %
 
Volume fragmentation
    Total fragmentation                        = 34 %
    File fragmentation                         = 65 %
    Free space fragmentation                   = 4 %
 
File fragmentation
    Total files                                = 205,150
    Average file size                          = 460 KB
    Total fragmented files                     = 1,297
    Total excess fragments                     = 289,529
    Average fragments per file                 = 2.41
 
Pagefile fragmentation
    Pagefile size                              = 4.88 GB
    Total fragments                            = 127
 
Folder fragmentation
    Total folders                              = 17,610
    Fragmented folders                         = 1
    Excess folder fragments                    = 1
 
Master File Table (MFT) fragmentation
    Total MFT size                             = 604 MB
    MFT record count                           = 227,394
    Percent MFT in use                         = 36 %
    Total MFT fragments                        = 10
 
 
I can also post the list of files that could not be defragged if that helps.
 
Thanks!

What defrag tool are you using?

 

In any case...run the chkdsk /r command before attempting a defrag of the Windows partition.

Yeah plenty of hope I think.  I suggest using Auslogics Disk Defrag, because it can defrag so much better than the built in windows one.  There's also another program that can defrag system files during boot, but, I haven't tried it yet so I can't comment.

You should probably start thinking about freeing up some HDD space.  Move some personal files(pictures, video, music, etc.) to some other storage media.

For another good defragger that has auto defrag, schedualed defrag and boot time defrag capabilities, you might take a look at:

Puran Defrag - Automatically Defrag your Hard Disk Drives

"Free for private and non-commercial use."  I've used it for years, never a problem.

I agree with Louis, do the chkdsk /r first, this will repair errors, locate bad sectors, and recover readable information.

 
Click on Start, click on Run and type cmd in the box and press Enter.  
 
You will see an image similar to the one below.
 
Screenshot2.jpg
 
Type in or copy and paste chkdsk /r in the Command Prompt and then press Enter.  If you type this in be aware of the space between chkdsk and /r.
 
You will get the following message:
 
Chkdsk cannot run because the volume is in use by another process.  Would you like to shcedule this volume to be checked the next time the system restarts?  (Y/N)
 
Press the Y key, then press Enter
 
Restart your computer to run the scan.  This has five sections and will take some time.  Please don't try to use your computer while this scan is running.
 
A log file will be created which can be found in winlogon.  This can be found in the Event Viewer under Applications.
 
Click on Start, click on Run and type eventvwr.msc then click on Enter.  Click on Application and select the most recent winlogon entry.
 
Please copy and then paste this in your next post.
 
 
Once you have done this use the Disk Cleanup tool.
 
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, point to System Tools, and then click Disk Cleanup
 
 
I would clean out the temp files at this point.
 

Please download Temp File Cleaner by Old Timer and save it to your desktop.
 
1. Save any unsaved work. (TFC will close ALL open programs including your browser!)
 
2. Double-click on TFC.exe to run it. (If you are using Vista or Windows 7, right-click on the file and choose "Run As Administrator".)
 
3. Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion.
 
Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If you are not prompted[/b], manually reboot the machine to ensure a completion.
 
Now I would run the disk defragment program.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

Thanks all.

 

I am using the standard Windows Defrag.

 

I will follow dc3's steps and report back.

 

Thanks!

The windows defragger isn't going to do a better job than that for you. I think you need to use another defragger like Auslogics Disk Defrag. http://www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/auslogics_disk_defrag.html

 

Then, beyond that, I dunno if anyone here at BC has any advice about this software: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb897426.aspx but it's supposed to defrag your windows system files during boot, since they can't be defragged while windows is running obviously. Because your hard drive is so small, the windows system files that can't be defragged while windows is running will make up a larger percentage of the drive.

 

But I'm gonna bet that with Auslogics alone, you could get fragmentation down to like... 12%?  Plus it optimizes the drive by putting files together in a row, and putting all the empty space in one string.

Auslogics wasn't much help:

 

Disk Size 80.66 GB Free Space Size 19.76 GB Clusters 21143548 Sectors per cluster 8 Bytes per sector 512 Defragmentation started 3/1/2014 10:46:48 PM Defragmentation completed 3/1/2014 10:49:56 PM Elapsed time 00:03:08 Total Files 204643 Total Directories 17543 Fragmented Files 1235 Defragmented Files 192 Skipped Files 1043 Fragmentation Before 54.03% |||||||||||||||||||||||||||| Fragmentation After 53.06% |||||||||||||||||||||||||||

 

Guess I'll try Puran.

It appears your drive is developing substantial numbers of bad clusters. That will hamper defragmentation, as no defragmenter will defrag a drive that gives it read errors. Defragmenting a failing drive can trash the file system. However if the drive is deteriorating, that's likely to happen in due course anyway.

There are several errors showing in the chkdsk log ............

Yeah something is going wrong. Defragging shouldn't take only 3 minutes... It's like it just skipped over it without really doing the job.

I've lost track of the number of times this particular hdd has been defragged, but you reach a point where the application or programs being used don't see the initial amount of fragmented files resulting taking considerably less time to determine the state of the drive.  There is a program called Security Check by Screen317 which uses  software as part of its scan to determine the amount of fragmented files on the hdd.  The total time that this scan runs to find all of its information is a matter of a couple of minutes.


Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

You may also want to try chkdsk /f
