so i downloaded it and it showed my c: at 22% fragmented, i defragged it (took about 1.5 hours), when it finished it said it was 27% fragmented

You may not have enough free space to defrag it. Whats the drive size and how much free space?

Why are you using it, what`s wrong with windows defragmenter ?
If you want an alternative, try Smart Defrag v2.3

Try doing it this way, it's faster and actually works:

Open Defraggler

1. Click the Drive you want to Defrag:

i did this, and there were 5 files it said it could not defragment (looked like windows system files) and the drive still says 30% fragmented...

i think its these system files that it cant move thats giving me the wrong reading

Try running it as an Administrator. It usually give Number files were not defragged normally 99% of the time, it is normal but the defragment percent is probably not. When you click Analyze is there fewer results than from when you never defragged at all?

Also try an SFC Scan and then try defragging again. If this fails, try using some other defragment software or Windows Built In Defragger

Personally, in my opinion. It is. See what happens after using Windows Disk Defragmenter and Analysing to see if the results change.

Piriform's Defraggler says one thing, Windows Defrag says another?
So here's the dealeo, I just finished doing some HDD cleaning, and as a result I wanted to defrag my drive with Defraggler, everything went smooth as silk, but I saw that Defraggler was telling me (after the defrag) that my drive was still 17% fragmented. After running it 1 more time, it was...

Using Defraggler
I started with 22% defragmentation and finished with 21%. I do see that the number of fragmented files is much less..I guess I expected that the drive would be completely defragmented. Any comments?
