26,735 FRAGMENTS!!!


Surely that must be some sort of record.


How has my computer got this bad I just don't understand. Only had it for 2 years. Disk defragmentor just gives up after about 4% and it does absolutely nothing. I now have Raxco Perfect Disk. An offline defragment takes 3 hours to analyse then after another three hours it doesnt even get past defragmenting the first file (I guess its the page file).

    your very high fragmentation is caused by your tiny cluster size - reformat the disk with 4KB clusters and all will be fine or alternativly convert the disk using "Partition Magic"
