start you computer in safe mode then defrag.

Also make sure you have 15% of free disk space, it needs it to work

I had a similar problem when I tried to schedule Defrag to run automatically. It wouldn't work, and the message was the same. But manually starting it works fine.

thank you DFW for your reply, yes there was plenty of space, i have been caught short before on that, one suggestion was to run scandisk- checkdisk, and that worked well, now i can defrag
