defrag stays at 0%

Specs: 98, ?

I'm trying to defrag my hard drive and the progress indicator seems to stay at 0%. I left it running over night and it still says 0% in the morning. Why would it do this?

restart the computer in safe mode and then run the defrag again.

Also, run scandisk before another defrag attempt.

NB: the most likely reason why it stays at 0% is because some background program keeps changing the drive contents. In safe mode almost no background programs run. You will probably also need to go to safe mode to get scandisk to complete.

Do a google search for defrag from Millenium
Edition, it does'nt seem to mind apps running in the background, screensavers included..
