Dell Vizio computer with WD hard drive heavily fragmented and will not defrag despite repeated attempts and several defrag utilities tried. Have researched and tried all the scan disk , disk check and other suggestions I have found and still no improvement! Defrag util say 23% free space on a 14gig disk - defrag screed is almost completely red in blocks or lines. Have moved all files or programs I know anything about to the other hard drive or removed any files or programs not needed. PLEASE HELP - Driving me nuts! Thank you for your anticipated response!

You cannot move programs from one drive to another. You need to uninstall them and reinstall them on the new drive. That doesn't solve your defrag problems, however. Pls provide full details about your OS and system setup, including all drives & partitions.

In fact, defrag helps a little to speed up computer.
check services in your system and disable useless items.

Open the MY COMPUTER window, then right-click on the hard drive icon, then click Properties.

What's listed for capacity, used space, and free space?
