Here are a couple of ideas.
1. Make sure there is enough free disk space on each hard drive to allow the defragmentation application to work. Generally about 15 percent is required.
2. Run scandisk, or checkdisk, before defragmenting, and delete any unneeded files (clear out temp files especially).
3. Defragment your hard drives in Safe Mode.
If these suggestions do not work, or if you have already tried them, then create a separate post (per member) and tell us what version of Windows you are using, what defragmention application you are using, and the size of each hard drive and the amount of each that is currently being used. Make a copy of the report in case it is needed.
Hope this helps.
