Try going to run,type:cmd In cmd type:D efrag /?
You can run defrag in,analyze-mode only,and/or if disk space is low,
force defrag to run.

second
arrow (looks like two pages) [[Copies the details of the event to the
Clipboard.]] | Paste into Notepad | Click:

Print) and/or the Event code (for example, 20) into the ID field, then
click the Go button. Source and Event codes may be found in the Event
