Partner who plays lots of games has a big HD with a heap of empty space.
When I defragg it there are little bits of files all over it.Would it make any difference if I
partition the drive down to nearer the size used after defragging ?At present it takes a long time to defrag.Also there are small unmovable fragments still scattered about the empty space,would it be possible to move these.
There is not really a major problem apart from the slow defrag so it is not really a major to leave things as they are.

Thats why. The bigger the partition the longer it'll take. What program aere using to defrag? Dont think so, if it says whatever cant be moved, it cant be moved

Or Auslogics disk defrag. At least it can defrag more than 1 partition at the same time. Altho defraggler 2 when it comes out should be good. You'll be able to defrag before booting into windows

You can schedule Defraggler to run when the PC is on but not normally being used like 4:00 am if you leave the PC on 24/7 like I do.
