Try running your defrag in safe mode. Let us know if that helps. Otherwise try some of the freeware defrag applications available.

I like Diskeeper Lite. Another freeware one that I installed just recently and think is good is IObit SmartDefrag. It's still in Beta but I haven't had any problems with it. It has an automatic defrag utility that will defrag in the background, but personally I don't like this so I disabled it and just use it for manual defragging.

DiskeeperLite and the Windows XP defragmentor are one and the same, with only a slightly different GUI.
Under normal conditions and if used on a regular basis, this does well enough, and you do not have to add another application to your hard drive.

Well.If that is all then t.y. for all the info
seemingly,The Disk Defragmenter cannot continue to the other files if one file cannot be defragmented
I would rather use another program in doing so..like the one you've suggested :thumbsup:
