I am trying to install a program that needs 2 Gigabytes of contiguous disk space. I have tried defragmenting the drive; but, athough it has 4.5 Gigs of free space, it has only about 550 Megs of contiguous free space.

I need a defragmenter that will move all files into a contiguous area so I have enough contiguous free space.

What's a really good defragmenter that will do it?

I could take the drive to another machine, move all its files to another drive and then move them back; but, that's too much trouble. But, I'll do it if I have to.

I've used PartitionMagic to shrink a partition to pack all the files together, then reexpanded the partition to original size.

I imagine Ranish Partition Manager would do the same thing.

Actually xp has diskeeper lite as its own so I would suggest doing so in safe mode and be sure to do a disk cleanup first.
