    o.k...so heres my problem....im curently defragmenting my HD...i have two partitions...my C: drive and my D:drive.....i have my OS installed in my C: drive and alot of other things.....

    So when i first started defragmenting my C:drive....i had 34.0 GB of free space..and i left to go eat taco bell..XD..and when i came back...it was around 70% done but the free space was down to ONLY 2 GB.....

    so iv looked evrywhere and foun lots of people had this problem..didnt quite find a solution though....and BTW...im stil defragmenting *** im writing this...but i might just end it becouse it started going really slow.....im assuing becouse i have no free space left on that partition....

    Another important thing is that im NOT using the disk defragmentor that comes with the OS....

    im using one called "Piriform Defraggler"....and before that i used the default one that came with the os...and it said that it was 0% defragmented..but when i analyzed it with the other program..it said it was like 64% fragmented......

    So if theres ny more info u guys need ...just let me know...and i dont know if my HD space will come back after i close the program..but idk..il let u guys know..becouse i might just close it out now..becouse i dont think it will finish any time soon....

    so plz help me out with this problem.....and thanx in advance.......
