Windows 7: Defrag Blocked

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit sp1

Thanks everyone for your input. I was just asking as I was not sure whether analysing the disc caused any writes, which from all replies it doesn't.
Take this as answered, thanks.

Also keep in mind that fragmentation doesn't mean anything on an SSD or flash memory. It is only a problem on a mechanical drive that has to swing a head to find the bits and pieces.

I was wondering if Defraggler might be the reason why it took so long to defrag. I'll find out in a couple of weeks or so.
Apparently, the reason for defragging taking so cottonpickin' long was Defraggler. I turned Win 7's defrag back on a week ago when I went out of town and everything seemed to be working just fine when I got back yesterday. Defraggler is history!

Hi all. Stupid question here... A friend of mine was speaking highly about this PerfectDisk prog because "it defrags system files." I was kind of surprised because I thought (assumed) that the defrag utility built into Windows 7 already defragged system files. Is this not true? I do not...
