    I use Diskeeper 10 Professional Premier and I ran it today and it has a key at the bottom so you know what color means what and my harddrive is defragmented but there are a few spots of pink that mean i have low performing system files. I've done a boot refrag, redone my paging file size and MFT settings. I've read that you really shouldn't worry about them but I'd like to try to fix them if it's at all possible.

    I don't think that I would waste time worrying about them.

    First, just because they are fragmented doesn't mean they are used often. And secondly, if you do the arithmetic on some of the percentages and times that DK displays you will find that they translate into milliseconds.

    And lastly, unless your disk is brutally fragmented, AND you are running a relatively fast drive, you really won't notice fragmentation all that much.

    Out of curiousity, "redone my paging file size"? What exactly did you do?
    And, MFT settings? You defragged the MFT or actually changed the size?
