Anyway, I've got two 73G raptors in Raid0 on my machine (running XP SP3).
Its been awhile so I went to defrag the drive, did the analyze, and sure enough it needed it - have 11% total fragmentation, 22% file fragmentation.
But when I go to actual do the defrag, it starts up, runs for a few minutes and kicks out - along with a note that some files could not be defrag'd. When I look at the report, the fragmentation %'s haven't changed - but it does not list any files that couldn't be defrag'd. Weird.
Anybody ever seen this and have any clues as to how to correct it??

Windows defragger is hopeless... Try something like Ultimate defrag a go, its free too
OR a Norton Utility, works pretty well, its been 8 yrs that i defrag whit my norton 2000 utility.
Thanks - Prior to seeing this I downloaded diskeeper 2008 pro - its a free 30 daytrial. Worked pretty well - not sure if I'll buy it after though. I'll definetly checkout Ultimate defrag.
