Hi,
I running a routine defrag. I've got oudles of free space. One thing that has always baffled me is why some files are unmoveable. Is it because they are in use? Can anyone tell me? This is a low priotity request so don't rush to answer.
Thanks,
Pilot.

Hello JohnTP: :wave:



Some files cant be moved because they are operating system files that are in use to run windows.

when you want to "really" move them :laugh: simply boot into another drive and OS and defrag the drive or partition that you were in previously


check this one out >>>> I prefer it to the windows verison
