Defraging Question?

I just started to defrag my hard drive and saw this on the screen. It will not fix itself and has me worry. The look of the red lines that is there and can't be fix as I try to run it a few times. Anything I can do to try and fix the defrag my HD to fix this problem?

I would suggest using another defrag program such as the one built into Windows.

When I had hard drives in use I tried many defrag programs and never found one that worked better than the built in Windows 7 Defrag.
Windows 7 defrag doesn't have all the little built in jumping colored boxes but it does the job.
To the best of my memory Windows 7 defrag was designed by Diskeeper for Microsoft.

When I installed my Samsung SSD, Samsung's Magician disabled defrag on my computer so I was using Defraggler (which, curiously enough, is recommended here) and it would take forcottonpickinever to defrag my main spinner. One time, it even corrupted it (thank God for backups!). I found out how to re-enable Win 7's defrag on the spinners and now it just takes minutes, instead of double digit hours, and does it automatically overnight.

I would tend to agree here; the defrag program built into windows should do a good enough job for ya; but there are others out there but still the windows program is probably a lot better than the 3rd party programs out there.
