    WindowsXP - Dell 8250 -. I have had this computer for 6 weeks. I have run it's chkdsk a few times - AOK. But, when I go to the defrag part, I wait for an analysis and each time the analysis for a defrag comes up with "unnecessary to defrag now".

    I find this difficult to comprehend or accept. I wonder if a program such a DiskKeeper with a supposedly good defrag program is the way to go. r.s.v.p. missfuffy

    XP defrag, especially if you have ntfs thinks that defrag is not needed until over 20% of files are fragmented.

    Ignore the not needed message and press defrag. It won't do any harm and can only do good

    Hi, If you wanted to use Diskkeeper there is a free version. According to the burp it does the same as the paid for version except for scheduling.

    It might make you happier to use that. Peace Mal

    HI, I went to Executive Software but could not find it. It is called Diskkeeper lite and if you look around the free download sites you might find it. Peace Mal
