Defrag Problems

I am using Defragger to defrag my computer. I have always been happy with it until now It does not seem to clean all my files. Does anyone have any suggestions?


Thank you

what do you mean clean all your files? defragging the hard drive placing all the parts of a file on the same section of the hard drive.

Defrag is a file organiser on the hard drive, as oscer1 says.

If you want to clean up the hard drive you need to run Windows Disc Cleaner, which is normally found in the Control Panel.

Defrag isn't simple it can take several approach some move files used regular to front some move boot files for fast boot

Sorry - What I meant to say was when Defragger is finished and lists zero fragmented files, I still have 7 or 8 thousand fragmented files.

Is this Piriform's Defragger? Based on my experience, let me hazard a theory: I think it has been giving me a Zero when it has defragged all the files that it has determined it could defrag. The files that it determined it could not defrag (for whatever reason set) - is not part of that Zero at the end.

Thank you, I really do not know much about computers and I do not know when to worry and when not to.


Thank you again
