Hi
My sister-in-law has computer problems, and one of them was that when she did a defrag it kept stopping at 10%, and I remembered seeing that in one of the posts. She has Win XP.

Did a search on Defragmentation, Defrag 10%, Defrag 10 percent [did it this way because using 10% simply brought up lots of Mandrake 10] and still haven't found the post concerned.

Does anyone know of this post and can give me the thread?

Have searched Google, and of the sites I've been thru so far didn't mention this problem.

Any help at all would be good, and then she can get on to fixing any remaining problems.

regards Marg.

Its caused by a program accessing the harddrive,Boot into safe mode and do the defrag.

I know for a fact that Windows 95 has a program that doesn't let you defrag the root partition. Or maybe my version....

(Ok so that was irrelevant)
