Run checkdisk first.
Use the disk clean up feature next.
Boot to safe mode and then run defrag.

A Pit Bull is like a gun you can pet. And there is no safety on it.

How big is your hard drive and much free space is left on the hard drive?

My recommendation is reply #4.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

The reason for running chkdsk is because even a transient drive issue will prevent full defrag.

You could start with chkdsk /f as this is quite fast and might do the trick. It fixes errors. Otherwise do chkdsk /r but this is more thorough and mike take an hour or so.

For what these commands do type chkdsk /? and it will tell you.

Note the single space before the /f or /r or /?

You will have to reboot after you input the /f or /r commands and it carries out the check before Windows restarts.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
