Note: This might take a while (A few hours, mabye 1 mabye 4) depending on the last time u ran it and how many things u have installed - but hell it sure is worth it!

I have tried defrag; I use Diskeeper 7. There remains one (big, must be the one) fragmented file with 3 excess fragments.
This partition has 900Mo and had 200Mo free. Since this huge fragmented file take almost 100Mo there are only 100Mo left and Diskeeper cannot defrag it.

The problem resolves by itself!!!
This morning I downloaded a 37Mo files into the partition (that showed 100Mo available) Upon the completion of the download the partition shows remaining 160Mo! (100Mo + 100Mo - 37Mo).

Computers are full of mysteries that never get revealed.

Thanks anyway for your participation.
