Can anyone please give me any suggestions on how to make my defrag work? I did a scan disk then tried a defrag and in the pop up window it shows the little defrag icon but that is as far as it goes.It will not defrag it just sits there and looks like a lost puppy. Thanks

The defrag process needs exclusive access to the hard drive. Ensure all programs are closed and disable any virus software you may be using. You can also boot into safe mode and try the defrag then.

Also in Windows 98 and 2000 defrag tends to hang out at 10% for an aful long time and if you have a large hard drive that make defrag hang out for hours.
