What is C:\$extend\$UsnJrnl:$J:$DATA ???
What is this C:\$extend\$UsnJrnl:$J:$DATA thing?. Its spread out into hundreds of clusters and totally throws off my defrag program and is locked. Can someone tell me how to delete it because it is really starting to bug me!

You don't delete it, you leave it.

I've needed to know this a couple times now
You can indeed delete the USNJRNL, and then recreate it with chkdsk. (surprised a moderator didn't know this )

Instructions on how to use fsutil.exe to remove the journal, and how to use chkdsk.exe to rebuild it, can be found here: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/311724

don't know, but in my case I ran Perfectdisk to attempt to free up more shrink space to create a new partition with Vista. Prior to running PD, Vista told me I had 130gb of shrink space (out of 400gb+ free space). After running PD I had just over a gig! There was a metadata file at the end of the drive, which appeared to be usnjrnl. Fortunately running PD a second time offline moved it to the front.
