Usually you recieve that message if a file is in use and can't be defragmented for that reason. If you were running any programs, or even if a process was idle and running.. you may recieve this message.

System:

-Windows 10 pro 64 bit

-HDD (WD10EZEX)

-MSI B75MA-P45 (MS-7798)

-Socket 1155 LGA

-AMD Radeon HD 7700

-2 STICKS OF 16GB DDR 3 RAM (G.Skill F3-10666CL9-8GBNT)

-K120 Logitech Keyboard

-Centrophorus M601 Mouse

Go to Task Manager, Processes.
If you have an Antivirus program with real-time protection, turn that off before defrag. Also, disconnect from the internet.

Try defragmenting in Safe Mode. There are far fewer processes running in safe mode so this might do the trick.

There are different methods used to defragment hard drives - and different recomendations on when to do it (built into the programs). The "you do not need to defragment this volume" just means that it's not all that fragmented.

I suspect (but am not certain) that the report is referring to the fragmentation of your MFT. Normally this can't be defragmented - but there are tools that will attempt to do this.

2 good defrag programs are Diskkeeper 10 and VoptXP. VoptXP is a bit "quirky" to use - but has the flexibility that I want when choosing what to defrag. I haven't tried out Diskkeeper 10 yet - but it comes highly recommended.

As for how to use them - the hardest part is that you have to buy them, they're not freeware. After that it's just install them and read the instructions.

A few fragmented files is of almost no consequence, and will not significantly impact your computer's performance. I would not trouble myself about them.
