No, that was the only one I turned off

No errors are shown during the defrag, it goes through four stages and completes normally but there is no reduction in fragmentation.

Just use Windows Disk Defragmenter, judging by the other image, it looks like you only analyze the disk.

Click on the C drive and then hit Defragment Disk.

I only analysed the disk so that you could see the fragmentation of the drives that it shows, there's not point running a defrag if its only going to attempt and fail to move every single file on the drive.

I ran another defrag, no effect.

We have to wait for someone else to pass through- I'm out of options for now. Never had a disk that didn't want to defrag itself.

Sorry

I think it may be a permissions problem, access denied or unable to move keep appearing in logs.

Would you be able to give me a list of default drive permissions so I can compare please?

Do you know which are the fragmented files? That would help narrow down the problem IMHO. The windows defragger is unable to defrag several system files and large files (if free space is low), but since you have plenty of free space for the defrag and all the disk checks are uneventful, I'd guess that it's the type of fragmented file that's causing the problem. Also, IIRC, the windows defragger avoids defragging fragments larger than 64MB (by default), maybe the possible presence of these fragments is preventing a defrag of other files...just my guess and I could be wrong.

Thanks for the reply,

Alot of the files are those from games and are larger than 64mb, but if I select a 5KB file, it wont defrag either.

I have uploaded a a list of all the fragmented files.
