    WINRETOOLS will not optimize/analyze

    WINRETOOLS says it needs optimization, but it wonít analyze the drive nor will it optimize it. It says itís 14% fragmented but wonít go any further. What can I do to resume the defragmentation of this drive? Any help is much appreciated.

    No need to worry about this. There's very little IO activity on recovery or EFI partitions. The only reason you're seeing this message is because you have a drive letter assigned to the recovery partition. Thus, you can either (1) remove the drive letter (recommended) or (2) ignore the message (the lazy person's way out).

    WINRETOOLS is a proprietary system installed on Dell computers I would suspect that it is not compatible with the OS drive Maintenance system. It could be a recovery drive and therefore consist of some Large files that cannot be defragmented.

    I would check with your Dell documentation to see if you can find a description of the use and status of the WINRETOOLS partition If you have the Dell ID reference for the system dell could provide precise build details online
