Always something The last two times that I defragged.... last week and this week, it (the results) were different.. IN the past, of course, no prolem.. NOW when the defrag is finished, a window comes on that states "Some files on this volume could not be defragmented"....they were referring to the C of course..

When I went ot the VIEW FILES.. there was a page of information... One section was pertaining to Volume Fragmentation:

total fragmentatin: 13%
File fragmentatin:27%
Free space fragmentation: 0%

another section: File Fragmentation

Total files: 59,472
Average file size: 273 KB
Total fragmented files: 3
Total excess fragments: 3
Average fragments per file: 1.00

Another sectionn: Pagefile fragmentation

Pagefile size: 768 MB
Total fragments: 2

Another one: Folder Fragmentation
Total folders: 4,534
Fragmented folders: 1
Excess folder fragments: 0

Another one: Master File Table(MFT) fragmentation
Total MFT size: 94 MB
MFT record count: 64,184
Percent MFT in use: 66%
Total MFT fragments: 3

Anyone have any information as to what went wrong ... IF anything is wrong?? Thanks

Quick question: Do you use a third party software program to defragment? If so, which one?

Pagefile, also called swap file, is the section of memory that the computer uses as secondary to the RAM. This file can get fragmented sometimes if your computer had to increase your virtual memory if you ran out. This happened to me before.

The masterfile is a section that that is something like an abbreviated index of the files and folders on your system. As you add files and folders, the masterfile increases in size. Unfortunately, when you get rid of files and folders, the corresponding space on the masterfile is still there.

Both these can be defragmented with certain third party defragmenters if you want to go that route.

You can defrag your pagefile using this Microsoft utility.
